Featured Interview With Kristina Widener
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
Born and raised in Northwest Ohio in a small rural community. I still live in the same area (not the same town, though) where I live with the love of my life, my oldest 2 children and his 3 children. We have 2 cats that are like having perpetual toddlers in the house, and we have a very active family life.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I started reading at a very young age. Reading isn’t truthfully the right word, more like devouring books. I started writing after tragedy struck my family as a way to try to cope with all my thoughts and emotions.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
I don’t have a favorite genre, but favorite authors are just as broad. I love Stephen King’s work, James Patterson, Dave Pelzer, Brad Meltzer, and the list is never ending.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
It isn’t natural to bury your child, but life doesn’t always follow the natural way. Shattered Soul: An Angel Parent’s Journey is a story of every parent’s worst nightmares, the death of a child. Kristina Widener shares her journey of grief after losing her youngest child to SIDS, her emotions, memories, and how she has coped with it all.
“Welcome to my journey.
This has been a road of pain, grief, discover, loss, healing, joy, love, and so many other things that are hard to put a name on. This is my story, my version of the thoughts and feelings that I have experienced since losing my youngest child. That is a hard statement to say, to write, to read, but it is the cold fact of the matter. I will take you through the roller-coaster ride I have lived, and am still living. I will tell you what I can remember, what I felt, and how I feel now at the time of writing this.”
Join Kristina, if only for a brief moment, on her journey. Shattered Soul: An Angel Parent’s Journey will take you down an unforgettable path. When you lose a child, you’re still a parent, an Angel Parent, and here is the story of one Angel Parent determined to break the silence of her grief.
