Romance Author Kristen James
First, the professional bio– Kristen James has ranked in the top 100 Bestsellers in Kindle US and Canada, #1 in eight different categories, and #1 in Movers & Shakers and free rankings. She writes women’s fiction, romance and romantic suspense.
And now, the other stuff– I was born in a tiny town in western Oregon and lived there until after my high school graduation. 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. I started a family, moved to Little Rock, Arkansas, back to Portland, Oregon and several other towns before landing in the country in Western Oregon where I started out. I’ve also been around the western half of the US, parts of Canada, Mexico and Costa Rica.
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.
Here I’m riding my sister’s horse, Tania.
Along with exploring, I love to learn and discover new experiences. I’ve always liked Business and marketing too. It’s a passion that runs in the family. My husband owns Bravado Outdoors, which makes concrete table tennis tables and chess tables. You can see them at www.concretetabletennis.com.
