Kris Pearson

Biography

If it's fine, Kris gardens. If it's wet, she writes. And if the writing's going well, the garden can look after itself...

Kris writes sizzling contemporary romances, and is the current membership secretary for Romance Writers of New Zealand. Her first six books are set at least partly in the capital city of Wellington so she can make use of the beautiful harbor in the plots. These books make up her 'Wicked in Wellington' series. There's a boxed set of three to save you money, and the first two have just been translated into Spanish. More to follow!

She's also written the 'Heartlands' series - the girls who live deep in the New Zealand countryside. There's 'Her Man with Iceberg Eyes' and 'Christmas Holiday Husband', and 'More than the Money'. She's currently writing the second of her 'Sheikhs of Al Sounam' series.

Kris has written all her life - from her autobiography at twelve, to her own special wedding service, to short stories published in mass-circulation magazines and broadcast on National Radio in New Zealand. She has a background as an advertising copywriter and a decor specialist.

During the past eight years she's produced a selection of racy romantic novels, and publishing them through Smashwords has been the ideal answer to share them with the world.

Smashwords Interview

How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords has made my books available in different e-book stores, so I'm able to reach more people. The iBookstores in particular have been a wonderful addition.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Getting to know my characters. I don't start writing until I have the entire book in my head - and by this I mean the storyline. I simply can't make it work by plotting a book out scene by scene on paper or on the screen. I like to have my 'brain-outline' and then dive in to see what's really going to happen. I'm often amazed at what my characters do - without my permission... They turn the tables on me all the time. I'm sometimes very surprised how they'll set something up for me that turns out to have relevance much later in the story.

Smashwords book reviews by Kris Pearson

  • Marrying The Boss on Dec. 01, 2012

    I'll start by saying I'm a friend of Judi's. And a writer myself. I haven't given her five stars because I'm a friend. I've awarded them because I know a good story and a fresh vivid writing style when I read them. Much enjoyed.
