I’ve been making up stories since I could hold a pencil. Four years of college, writing in essay test booklets and spewing out what some professor wanted to hear, killed my love of writing. In 2005, while researching a home school writing program for my kids, I re-discovered my desire to write and ended up joining NaNoWriMo.
Seventeen days later, I had the beginnings of a fantasy novel. After I made the “mistake” of telling my relatives and friends I was writing, I decided to self-publish Eldala in 2007 through Lulu.com. Since then, the stories have poured out of me like an Arizona flashflood during monsoon season.
I have a passion for writing medieval fantasy fiction, and my stories always have romance. I tried my hand at contemporary romance, but discovered I prefer making up my facts. Besides writing, I love to read historical and contemporary romance. My favorite authors are Mary Connealy, Karen Witemeyer, Robin Lee Hatcher, and Kaki Warner. I’m also a prolific blogger and spend too much time on Facebook.
I have three wonderful children, and have been married to the most encouraging man on the planet for twenty-seven years. They’re my biggest fans and without them, I wouldn’t have written at all. Three years ago we moved from the Phoenix metro area to Western Montana. It's taking some time to learn to deal with snow.
Eldala's sequel, Black Heart, has been in the works for a few years. Moving kind of slowed down the process but I'm still working on it. One day I'll get it done. Until then, the people asking for it will just have to be patient.

- A Woman of Choice (The Hansen Series: Nicolas & Sydney Book 1)
on Dec. 06, 2010
I like historical romance in general, so A Woman of Choice was right up my alley. I really liked the tension amongst Nicky and Sydney and Rickard, all the twists and turns of the plot, the swearing in Norwegian (ha!), the talking to God, Sydney's relationship with Stefan, the tasteful sex scenes, and the way Sydney worked with horses. Being Norwegian myself, I think Kris has done a great job of capturing the essence of a non-demonstrative Norwegian man and his turmoil as he has to decide what to do with the woman who is seemingly dropped into his world.
