Hi, I’m Kris Jayne, and I write contemporary romance for today’s modern woman. I’ve been writing full-time since October of 2014, which is when I quit my full-time job to pursue my passion for writing full-time. One of the questions that I get is, “Why are you writing romance?” And they always say it with a little bit of a tone, but the answer is I write romance because I read romance. I’ve been reading romance my entire life.
My mother once went to the public library, and they were getting rid of some of their paperbacks. And my mom came home with a big black trash bag filled with Harlequin romance novels. That summer, I read my way through that trash bag. I was reading about Greek shipping magnates and exotic locales in Paris and Istanbul, and I was hooked, and I’ve been hooked ever since.
So what characterizes my writing today are my heroines. They’re strong, independent, professional women. They have friends, and they travel, and they have really rich lives. It’s just that their lives could be made a little spicier if they encountered a tall, dark, and handsome stranger, which… who wouldn’t want to do that?
So if you’d like to sample some of my writing, you can go to 3fridays, that’s the number 3, Fridays dot Kris Jayne dot com, and enter your email address. I’ll immediately send you my short story “3 Fridays,” and that story actually takes place in the same universe as my current work in progress, which is a three-book series, the Thirsty Hearts series. The first book, Charming You, will be out in early 2016. One of the advantages of getting on the mailing list now is that I will be sending preview chapters and other goodies to the people who downloaded that short story. So go to 3fridays.christinaj4.sg-host.com, and happy reading.
