Kris is a bestselling author of thrillers and romantic suspense. A former copywriter and public relations mercenary, Kris actually wrote her first novel after fibbing about writing her first novel in a pitch session with many well-known publishers. She’s also written a screenplay she did not lie about. She’s the wife of a fabulously talented composer for film and television, and the momma of two grown children—a scientist son and a daughter, currently performing on Broadway. Kris lives in Kentucky, where she really does drink tea—all day. She loves writing strong female characters and like Nora Ephron, believes everything is copy and you own everything that happens to you. If people wanted you to write warmly about them, they should've behaved better.


When she’s not writing, she’s baking gluten-free cupcakes.

Kris is allergic to wheat. Bless her heart.
