Chrisina no longer works at King's Books. I was born a rambler and I travel with poetry, sci-fi, and memoir books tucked inside my backpack. I also read a lot of short stories and fiction. Regardless of genre, I seek stories with strong elements of magical realism, narratives in which readers are encouraged to lose themselves in small moments of beauty and curiosity, and characters who live in the “in-between” spaces of language, culture and identity.
