Island Girl Since:

Originally Hails From:

Born on St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands, Krystina Powells presently enjoys the tropics with her husband and daughter. She is a skilled builder of anything out of cardboard and an expert at playing hide-and-seek to entertain a very energetic four-year-old. When Krystina isn't “loving” homeschooling during COVID-19, you'll find her juggling between being a mother, a wife, a small business owner, a blogger, and an author of novels based in the Caribbean. When she felt the pull to tell romantic stories set in the Caribbean, Krystina decided to honor the legacy of her maternal grandmother and paternal great-grandmother and the storytellers in her family by adopting the pen name Krystina Powells. Although history, storytelling, and writing are a few of Krystina’s passions, it is her time with family that she treasures the most. Krystina’s life and experiences in the Caribbean inspire her to take readers on a journey that goes far beyond the beaches and into the hearts and homes of local people--like your parents’ reaction the first time you dared to let out a chupse in their presence. Feel the Caribbean vibe, hear the laughter, and experience life and love from a genuinely unique perspective. Krystina Powells playfully addresses issues that some may shy away from while focusing on the often forgotten jewels of the sea which many call ‘home’.
