K. R. Bailey


K. R. Bailey loves reading, romance and long drives in the mountains. She’s married to her best friend and together they enjoy traveling or spending time at their cabin nestled high in the mountains where deer live under the deck and hummingbirds flit around all day. She’s grandma to five beautiful grandchildren and “mom” to a yellow lab named Shilo.

Even though she’s a Utah girl, she spent a year living in Washington, D.C. and has traveled to most of the states including Hawaii and Alaska. She had the opportunity to travel in Europe and cruise to such places as St. Thomas, Venezuela, and the lower Caribbean Islands. She’s visited the Mayan ruins in Mexico and spent time in Puerto Rico.

Raised around Morgan horses, she grew to love a special one – Modeska’s Red Rascal, who was part of her life for twenty-eight years. You’ll notice many of her stories have Morgan horses, a special dog, hummingbirds and wildlife in them because she feels life wouldn’t be complete without them.

Writing has become her passion since retiring from a full-time job of over thirty years. She loves to meet new people and gather background information for her writing. There’s always a new story bouncing around in her head, and most afternoons you’ll find her in her “cave” working on her next book.

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The first book I remember was "The Flame and The Flower" by Rosemary Rogers. That book had a big impact on me. From then on, I was hooked on romantic historical novels.
How do you approach cover design?
I usually work with a fantastic cover artist - even though I admit some of my short stories I've designed the covers myself. I start by reviewing pictures. I usually have an idea what I want for a cover, and then when I meet with my cover artist, she always has super ideas to enhance anything I have in mind. It's such a fun process to see what she designs for me.
