Author Crystal Burnett

Crystal was born and raised in Wilmington, N.C. and prides herself on being one of the very few Wilmington locals remaining. Currently she resides on the outskirts of town with her husband, two daughters, and works full time as Senior Mapper, with Geographic Information Systems. Growing up in the south she, of course, was involved pageantry, dance and had very, very big hair. Crystal enjoys hot summer days spent laying on the beach, the smell of fresh cut grass and standing by the grill with an ice cold drink, heavy on the Vodka, please & thank you. Obviously writing, making people laugh and networking with others are all in her pool of enjoyment, as well. She is growing a social following and is excitedly working on her blog reveal in the very near future. Crystal feels strongly that being the TRUE version of you is the only way to go. Because, anyone can smile for a photo, but can you laugh at yourself? Feel free to reach out to Crystal, follow her IG @Hotmessmom_nc , on Facebook at Hotmessmomnc or email her at
