Kristin von Kreisler
Kristin von Kreisler was born on October 4, the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi. All her life she has loved and rescued animals. She has written bestselling books about them and has spoken about their welfare on Coast to Coast to 560 U.S. cities and on the Voice of America to 123 million people.
Her most recent novels are Earnest, about a couple in conflict over custody of their beloved Labrador retriever, and An Unexpected Grace, about a woman and a golden retriever helping each other recover from violence and abuse. A memoir, For Bea, tells the story of Kristin’s beagle, who came from a medical lab and influenced her to become an animal writer. Her books have been translated into ten languages, and her first book, The Compassion of Animals, was a Book of the Month Club Selection.
