Kristina Nesvedová is a Czech author of children´s books. After her studies in French and Portuguese philology at Charles University, she started working as a book editor. For more than ten years, she has been preparing books by Czech and foreign authors for publication. Her first novel for children Kdo spí ve spíži (Who Sleeps in the Pantry, Host, 2023) conjures up an imaginary world where little vegetable creatures from a pantry basket come alive and experience adventures in their search for kin and friends. Kristina lives in South Bohemia with her family and two cats, and when she is not helping others bring their books into the world, she is writing her own stories and trying to improve her skills as a storyteller.
