|Hi, I am Kristina Coia. I am 18, a singer/songwriter, author and motivational speaker. I live in New Jersey and I love to sing, write and perform!
I've written two books called FALCON'S PREY and LYMERIA. They are fun, easy reads for ages 9 and older and I'm told they are great for book reports! My song, THE WAY HOME, is actually a lullaby in FALCON'S PREY that I put to music.
When FALCON'S PREY was published, I was asked to go to schools to talk about writing. I found that my talks were putting kids to sleep, so I needed to think of another way to keep them awake! I decided to to take examples from my books where the main characters had to overcome challenges and compare them to what kids in middle school are going through today. I introduced what I call THE PURPLE WIG THEORY and to keep things entertaining, I even put on a purple wig during the program. I called my program SHINE THROUGH. I never imagined that my SHINE THROUGH program would become so popular. I love presenting them to schools and youth groups. Having so many requests for a program for elementary grades, SHINE THROUGH is now available for grades 1 through 8!
I am excited about the release of my debut Country Music CD entitled, ..HOW ABOUT THIS... Having worked over a year on my CD, which includes 8 of my original songs, I truly hope to sign with a label and make my dream of becoming a professional singer a reality.
Stay tuned for my next book coming soon!
