The Gearketeers Care is a project that we are doing to help give some support to the fans of our books. Right now, we can send you a printable, personalized message from your child’s favorite Gearketeer, either with a message encouraging them to get through a tough time or to congratulate them on an accomplishment. We will also send you some printable puzzles and games featuring the Gearketeers.
From the mind of Kristin Damon –
Kristin Damon would describe herself as a “mother, wife, author, crafter, baker, designer, zombie slayer, cancer warrior.” Not only was she known for her her amazing accomplishments in her life but she was beloved by those she touched with her warm and lovable nature. When Kristin wasn’t with her family, she was writing. “Aside from my family, writing is my life. It is my favorite pastime, my passion, my calling. I love the escapist qualities of writing, of how it keeps me mentally resilient yet insanely distracted at the same time. I love to live in the alternative worlds I feel when a story comes to fruition. Writing is not for everyone, but it’s the only life for me.” -Kristin
In November of 2013, Kristin was diagnosed with terminal cancer (Stage 4 Metastatic Colon cancer). At the time of her diagnosis, Kristin was a happy, healthy and lively at 41 years old. On February 10th, 2016 at the age of 43 Kristin passed away surrounded by heartbroken loved ones that would always feel the void of the warm, witty and wonderful Kristin.
