 SUMMARY

 I am a blogger, writer and speaker whose primary focus is on the journey of writing, plant-based living and inspirational pieces about mindset and consistency.

 PUBLICATIONS

 E-Book

  •  “What I Love About You: A Guided Journal to Writing Your Proposal and Vows”- February 2018

This E-Book journal is a series of reflective writing prompts and quotes developed to help people craft a proposal, write their vows or love letters.

 Blogging

I created this space to document my writing and wellness journey, specifically through the lens of someone who has adopted a plant-based diet. I post on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays and share the posts on all of my social media platforms: Instagram: @kristinahamlett, Twitter: @Stinahamlett and on Facebook: Kristina Hamlett. There are plant-based recipes, creative non-fiction pieces, writing career updates and inspirational posts with a focus on mindset and consistency with writing.
