First, the professional bio– Kristen James has written over twenty books and ranked in the top 100 Bestsellers in Kindle US, UK and Canada, #1 in ten different categories, #1 in Movers & Shakers, and #1 free rankings.
The Twitter bio – Adventure seeker who loves the outdoors & exploring. Author of stories about life, passion, romance!
And more fun stuff– I was born in a tiny town in western Oregon and lived there until after my high school graduation. (I guess that’s where I get my love of small town settings!) I discovered writing in the 4th grade. My school published one of my short stories, and I realized other people might like to read what I wrote. I saved up and bought my own typewriter, and soon I was tapping out books over summer break. I wrote several “practice” novels and I continued writing though the next ten years.
As an novelist, my mission is to continually improve as a storyteller and write exciting stories that offer something new with each project. I want to entertain while touching readers’ hearts with strong, memorable characters that have flaws like me and you.
Another part of my mission is to help other writers by inspiring, motivating, and educating them by sharing what I’ve learned along the way.
My favorite activities are spending time with my kids and family, writing, reading and anything outdoors: camping, hiking, fishing, berry picking, mushroom picking, cycling, canoeing and exploring.
