Every Wednesday I feature an author you may not know yet, hopefully introducing you to some fantastic new reads. This week, I introduce you to Krissi Dallas. Well, actually, as part of Krissi’s Phantom Island Tour, her student Angie is introducing you. Take it away, Angie!

The main character of Whitnee is very obviously based on Krissi and a lot of these Krissi-things make their way into the novels. I always think the character of Caleb is like her husband, Sam, in attitude and sense of humor. That’s probably why these characters are super easy to love and relate to. Krissi Dallas is a fantastic writer, and everything she writes just pulls you deeper and deeper into her world, until it’s as if you’re standing there on the White Island right along with the characters. It’s one of those books that you will NOT want to put down! I saw a lot of late nights when I first read Windchaser and Windfall. Oh, and girls…I’m not gonna spoil it for you, but let me just say… Island boys? They are FINE!!! And for the record, it’s perfectly okay to have a major crush on an imaginary figure in a book… just sayin’…
I took Krissi’s test to see what tribe I’m in, and I’m closely tied between an Aerodorian and a Hydrodorian, though my Aero side is more dominant. To be an Aero means that I’m extremely music-oriented and a deep thinker. The Aeros have the power to control Wind, and they’re also typically the inventors on the Island, since they’re such innovative thinkers. My Hydro side means I’m extremely friendly and fun-loving, and I could just play in the water all day long if I was allowed. They obviously have the power to control Water, and they have amazing healing powers. They’re really good at clearing worries from your mind and helping you just focus on the excitement of the moment – pretty much everyone can get along with a Hydro.

Like Angie, I, too, am tied between Aerodorian and Hydrodorian tribes. Angie’s right about how eerily accurate the descriptions are. I’ve gone with the Hydros, though, mostly because I love the idea of houses built over water, the only way I could make a decision because I am so equally both.
What tribe are you in? Take the quiz and find out, then grab your tattoo. While you’re there, be sure to enter Krissi’s giveaway. And don’t forget to check out her new releases, Windchaser and Windfall.
