Meet Kris

Interviews | Events

krisKris Calvin is a past local elected official who knows politics from the inside out. She’s been honored for her advocacy on behalf of children by the California State Assembly and the California Governor’s Office. Kris’ education includes degrees from Stanford and UC Berkeley with training in economics and forensic psychology. 

More than a decade of work with state legislators and bureaucrats provides Kris with ample fodder for murder and mayhem in her debut Sacramento-based mystery series, which features lobbyist Maren Kane as an amateur sleuth.

When she’s not writing, you’re likely to find Kris at mystery writer conferences, in the halls of the Capitol in Sacramento, or cheering on her teams at Warriors basketball and  SF Giants baseball games. 

Have a question for Kris? She’d love to hear from you!
