Kristi Cain has taught secondary English since 2006 and has a passion for helping students through struggles in learning and in life. Prior to becoming an educator, she worked as a journalist and public relations director, honing her craft while publishing newspaper articles and newsletters across her region, state, and nation.
Before earning her Master’s Degree in English Education, Cain studied English at Vanderbilt University where best-selling author Tony Earley encouraged in her calling as a creative writer.
Cain’s life experiences and faith journey have lent her the lens through which she shapes stories about unlocking the light of destiny out of darkness. These experiences include the difficult struggle of her daughter’s medical crisis, which is one of the featured threads in her debut novel, The Key of Shadows.
She lives in the Smoky Mountain foothills of Tennessee surrounded by the beauty of God’s creation with her husband, her teenage daughter and son, and playful family dogs.
