K.N. SALUSTRO is an award-winning science fiction and fantasy author who loves outer space, dragons, and stories that include at least one of those things. When not writing or working at her day job, she runs an Etsy shop as a plush maker and makes art for her Redbubble shop, both under the name DragonsByKris. (She is serious about being a dragon fan.)

Her science fiction trilogy The Star Hunters was nominated for the Cygnus Awards, with each book in the trilogy receiving its own accolades. Chasing Shadows
, the first book in the trilogy and K.N. Salustro's debut novel, was a quarter-finalist in the 2018 Screencraft Cinematic Book Contest, and won a silver medal in the 2019 Readers Favorite book awards. Light Runner (the third book of the series) received an honorable mention in the Global eBook Awards. Her first fantasy novel, Cause of Death: ??? won the Fantasy category in the Indie Reader Discovery Awards, and was chosen as a winner in the 2021 Page Turner Awards.

K.N. Salustro is hard at work on her next novel, and will be writing some proper dragons into her books for a bit.

What's the logo?

This is the official logo of K.N. Salustro's company, Nova Dragon Studios, LLC. Since K.N. Salustro is a science fiction and fantasy author, and because dragons and outer space are two of her favorite things, she wanted both a company name and a logo that would reflect that. So, the second she officially registered Nova Dragon Studios, she set out to design a logo that would include both. This is the end result: a dragon with a star. And that's pretty much perfect.
