To be perfectly honest, I'd never heard of POTS before I met Kristina on Book Junkies. Now that I have, I can't help but hope that researchers will find a cure for this disabling condition. The most basic definition of POTS is that it causes an abnormal heart rate increase when the sufferer moves from laying down to sitting or standing up, frequently resulting in fainting spells.
However, Kristina is not defined by her illness. She is a talented writer who deserves to be recognized as such. To that end, I am directing you to her writing blog, where you will find samples of her work. I look forward to reading more from her in the future.
Have a happy day, Kristina!
