Kris Pearson

Publisher info

Kris writes sizzling contemporary romance, pure and simple. Well, maybe not that pure! They're sexy stories about couples who fall in love, and into bed along the way, just like real people do. The first novel in her new Scarlet Bay trilogy - HARD TO REGRET - is a lusty romp with a heartbreaking backstory threaded through it. The best of both.

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. She's an advertising copywriter and a decor specialist, and the author of 'The Boat Builder's Bed'. More than two million copies have now been downloaded free, and giving away a taste of her work with this one kick-started sales of all her others.

Her seven Wellington Series novels are set in the capital city so she can make use of the beautiful harbor in the plots. Her three Heartlands novels follow couples who live in more remote country areas of New Zealand.

Her all-time best-seller is 'Taken by the Sheikh'. There's now also 'Desired by the Sheikh', and these are not quite your usual sheikh stories.

Four books are now available in Spanish. There's a Spanish version of her website http://www.krispearson.com - click the flags at the top right of it to change languages.

Smashwords Interview

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.
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.

  • 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.
