Kristen Proby (kristenproby) | 13 comments Mod
Kristen was born and raised in a small resort town in her beloved Montana. In her mid-twenties, she decided to stretch her wings and move to the Pacific Northwest, where she made her home for more than a dozen years.

During that time, Kristen wrote many romance novels and joined organizations such as RWA and other small writing groups. She spent countless hours in workshops, and more mornings than she can count up before the dawn so she could write before going to work. She submitted many manuscripts to agents and editors alike, but was always told no. In the summer of 2012, the self-publishing scene was new and thriving, and Kristen had one goal: to publish just one book. It was something she longed to cross off of her bucket list.

Not only did she publish one book, she’s since published more than thirty titles, many of which have hit the USA Today, New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists. She continues to self publish, best known for her With Me In Seattle and Boudreaux series, and is also proud to work with William Morrow, a division of HarperCollins, with the Fusion and Romancing Manhattan Series.

Kristen and her husband, John, make their home in her hometown of Whitefish, Montana with their adorable pug and two cats.

I devoured your Fusion series and loved it so much that I kept going with your With Me in Seattle then I moved on to the Boudreaux series and then the Big Sky series. OMG... I love your writing style and your characters and how they all criss-cross. Can't wait to meet you!!

message 30: by Andreanne Hannah (new)

Andreanne Hannah (andreannehannah) | 3 comments Choosing my favorite book from Fusion/Seduction Series and With Me In Seattle series might be one of the hardest questions I would have to answer in this lifetime. I just love every book and how each of them offered a different story that touches a different part of my heart. Gahhhh!! I just reread all of the books the past 3 days! Landon and Cami's love story is probably on top! I still cry every time I reread it! It's soooo hard to choose from With Me In Seattle! I love all of them! Mark and Meredith made me cry a bunch too! But then I think of Sam and Leo, then Will and Meg, and then it's a riot. Ackkkk. Can't really decide! My heart is full and equally divided among all of them! ❤️

I can't wait for Indulge With Me and Love With Me!

message 31: by Jenni (new)

Jenni (jenni_thebault) | 3 comments I love LOVE The Boudreaux Series! Anytime someone writes about Louisiana I get all nostalgic about my home state. And the With Me in Seattle series has been a long time favorite! Kristen Proby's novels are some of my favorites to read and get lost in!
Please keep up the good works!
