Hi, I’m Kirstyn and welcome to Escaping to a Book!

A short ‘About Me’ such as the like seen on my Instagram, describes me as ‘A Scot living in the US. Perpetually in search of Cadbury’s chocolate and a can of Irn-Bru’. All of that is true… and a decent enough amount more.

Books have been a passion of mine from a very young age. It started with my Mum reading to me in bed, to me reading along with her, to me reading on my own whether she was beside me or not, knowing every word perfect from start to finish. After a short time of this, you can imagine both our excitement at graduating to new stories.

Fast forward a couple of years and she was no longer reading to me in bed, but catching me in bed under the covers reading when I was supposed to be asleep. What used to put me to sleep at night, was now keeping me awake! Worth every second and (gentle) scolding too.

Fast forward to now and I still can’t get enough of reading. There’s never enough time in the day, or night for that matter, to read as many pages and books as I would like.

My preferred genre’s include Crime, Mystery and Thriller, with a good healthy dose of the paranormal thrown in too for good measure.

If any of the above interests you, you’ve certainly come to the right place!
