Krista Joy Coleman
Science Fiction + Fantasy Author
I'm a science fiction and fantasy author pursuing traditional publishing with my current novel, The AmSaf Files. Inspired most by the writing of Brent Weeks, Andy Weir, Nicholas Eames, Martha Wells, and Patrick Rothfuss, my writing style is quick-paced with a touch of sarcasm and a lot of heart. I enjoy reading and writing flawed characters going through out-of-this-world problems in fantastical settings and grounding their lives in genuine, raw relationships.
I am a disciplined artist, fully believing that great books are born from consistent work and some inspiration when I’m lucky. My philosophy is to work like a professional author until I am one. I allow myself three to six months per draft, write consistently every day, and steadily provide my work to critiquing groups for feedback.

The AmSaf Files
In an outer space settlement, a quirky, close-knit team of scientists are working on the AmSaf Machine, a ground-breaking technology that expands the capacity of the human mind through dreams. Entering the dream space while secretly very distressed, their test subject, Berit, gets stuck in an endless loop of nightmares. Now, only her estranged brother, Travis, can use the machine to save her before her mind deteriorates and a decade’s worth of research is all for nothing.
