Author Stories Podcast Episode 1128 | Kristin Contino Interview
Today’s author interview guest is Kristin Contino, author of A House Full of Windsor.
Spanning from 1980s London to a present-day reality TV show, A HOUSE FULL OF WINDSOR explores how one woman’s messy past shapes her family’s future and how long-buried secrets and resentment must come to the surface for them to move on.
Debbie Windsor was always fascinated by royalty, but when her marriage fell apart, she turned to collecting to fill the void. Now the house is a royal mess, and Debbie’s health and safety is on the line.
Even her etiquette expert daughter can’t fix this disaster, and when the entire family ends up on a hoarding show, everyone has something at stake.
Kristin Contino has been writing stories for as long as she can remember. (What? You’ve never read “Miss Real Cool: The Teenage Teacher?”). Born and raised in the Philadelphia suburbs, Kristin spent most of her early years absorbed in tales like Anne of Green Gables, The Secret Garden, and The Babysitters Club, all while crafting her own short stories.
After a decade of working in journalism and public relations, Kristin translated her childhood love of reading and writing into a career as a freelance writer and editor.
Kristin serves as chief reporter at Royal Central and has been interviewed about the Royal Family for many national and international media outlets such as BBC World News, Sky News, and the Associated Press. Her debut novel, THE LEGACY OF US, was released in 2015, and her second book, A HOUSE FULL OF WINDSOR, will be released in July 2021.
When she’s not reading or writing, Kristin is passionate about travel, royal history, theatre, and learning everything she can about her favorite city in the world, London.
