About the Author


Krissy Bystrom Emery, the author of The Paw Paw Fruit Does the Cha-Cha Scoot, resides in a little coastal town, with her husband, four children, and their beloved dog. Life in sunny Florida suits them well as they share a love for short winters, long gardening seasons, trips to the beach, and exploring the open waters on their paddle boards too.

Growing up, Krissy spent her summers skipping along the shores of Lake Superior, picking wild blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, and apples, and fishing for fresh brook trout. She gives thanks to her parents for providing an environment that fostered healthy eating habits from the get-go, which is one of the greatest gifts bestowed upon her and now passed down to her children too.

Krissy graduated from the University of Wisconsin – Madison with a dream to one day share her love for writing poetry. When she started taste testing and studying odd and interesting fruits with her children for fun, she had a hunch that other families would enjoy exploring along with them too. With this, Suitable Fruitables Book Series ™ was born, combining her three passions- writing, nutrition, and children’s education. She now enjoys writing adventurous stories about unique veggies and fruits along with the health benefits behind their earth-grown suits!
