Hello - thanks for coming to see me. I love words, and I use them to make the world a happier place by creating people who are perfect for each other – although maybe they can’t see that to start with!

I began writing at my local radio station in New Zealand. After living in Italy and London I returned home and worked in TV, radio again, several advertising agencies, and then spent happy years as a retail ad manager. Totally hooked on fabrics, I followed this by surprising everyone and going into business with my husband as a curtain installer and working for some of the capital city’s top designers. Good for my body, and it freed up my brain to write fiction. In twenty years I haven’t fallen off my ladder once through drifting into romantic dreams, but I’ve certainly seen many beautiful homes and met wonderful people, and I may just have stolen glimpses of them for the books. (I didn’t say that, did I?)

If you love contemporary romance in exotic settings, that’s what I write. They're mostly sexy stories about couples who fall in love and into bed along the way, just like real people do. I’m the author of sixteen novels, three of which were finalists in New Zealand’s Clendon Award. Each can be read as a stand-alone, but some make up linked series. I hope you enjoy them all.

My most recent novels are billionaire beach stories about the wealthy Wynn family in Scarlet Bay - Summer Sparks, Summer Secrets, and Summer Spice.

Kris es una chispeante autora de romántica contemporánea, pura y simplemente. ¡Bueno, quizá no tan pura! Se trata de historias sensuales sobre parejas que, a medida que avanza la trama, se enamoran y acaban en la cama, exactamente como en la vida real.
Cuando hace buen tiempo se dedica a trabajar en el jardín y si llueve, a escribir, y cuando está inspirada y no puede dejar de escribir, el jardín puede cuidar de sí mismo. Es redactora publicitaria y decoradora especializada y autora de "La cama del constructor de barcos", de la que se descargaron gratis más de un millón de copias en inglés, lo que permitió dar a conocer su trabajo e impulsar las ventas de todas sus demás novelas. Precisamente ahora, la versión española de esta novela se encuentra disponible gratis para los lectores de habla hispana, así que descargaos una copia ya.

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.

    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.
