Author Kristi Strong's Thrilling Debut Novel

S For Story/10577858
LONG ISLAND, N.Y. - s4story -- Author, Kristi Strong is thrilled to share her debut novel, Balloon Days. She was born and raised in Long Island, NY and considers herself to be the human version of her dog; her exceptionally weird and affectionate rat terrier. As a writer, Kristi draws upon her professional experience as a trauma-informed licensed mental health therapist to write non-fiction works in addition to her fiction pieces. Her early works can be seen in various publications under her maiden name, Kristi DeName.

The idea of patients exploring their unconscious minds, consciously morphed into using Balloon Days as a psychological treatment once Kristi became a mental health therapist. Balloon Days sessions could include exposure therapy, trauma therapy, and psychoanalysis pushed to extreme limits, blurring the lines between fantasy and reality, in order to process our fears, live our desires, and heal our wounds. Kristi believes highlighting the human condition and the power of resilience through fiction or nonfiction is not only her passion, but her calling.
