Krantz, Colleen Bradford

Pen Name: Colleen Bradford Krantz

Comments from the author about writing: I was a journalist before I was a book author/documentary film writer so explore events, places and people in the world that I would personally want to learn more about. I try to tell any story so the reader grows to understand the real people in my story in the same way they would grow to understand a created, fictional character. I also work hard to set my own viewpoints aside as much as possible in hopes of telling a story that is as even-handed as possible.
