About Kristy

Born in Perth, Western Australia in 1982, Kristy Berridge was ushered into the world in a decade of bad hair, parachute pants, and blue eye shadow. Fortunately, she managed to avoid all three by immersing herself in the business of growing up, and hitched a ride with her fun-loving, and adventure-filled parents to the sunny state of Queensland. Here she completed most of her education.

Besides learning that boys don’t have cooties, and that algebra wouldn’t kill her, she pointedly set the path of her high school career towards success in Art and English-based subjects, and won numerous awards for her efforts.

After high school she went onto study Graphic Design and Illustration at James Cook University, furthered her studies at the local TAFE College with an Interior Design course, and then undertook a three-year Design course at Rhodec International in London.

Kristy Berridge: writer, sometimes comedian, peanut butter addict, exercise junkie, vegan ... woman.

There are many labels I go by, but not one can ever define me. Like all things in life, sometimes I commit 100% and other times I apply varying percentages to the effort and enthusiasm adopted.

To be a writer you must have passion and I have bucket loads, but I am human and sometimes I'd rather go cow-tipping or rob a seven-eleven than immerse myself in the written word.

The trick is to find balance. Between my love of keeping fit; outrunning my boyfriend to claim the television remote before being subjected to British drama and my clean eating lifestyle; washing the plates before eating off of them, I sit down to write with a clear conscience.

Romance and horror are my general persuasions these days; not because my life is lacking, but who doesn't love a bit of blood and guts with a side of lip-locking? I've been drawn to both genres, even combining them more often than not. 

The next stage in my journey is as unknown as the next paragraph in my forthcoming novels. It's better to live in the present, celebrate the small victories and of course, apply pen to paper whenever the inspiration may strike; a motto to live by.

Her new adventure, Shadow Ink Press who works with writers to help them through every stage of publication of their books. So from this humble beginning, Shadow Ink Press will soon emerge into a strong contender in helping authors attain their dreams.
