Kristine Brorman, writing as KR Brorman, self-published her award winning debut novel Eden's Fall in November 2017. The second novel in the series, Winter's Thaw is expected to be out in the Spring 2019. The self-publishing juggernaut is fast moving and quick changing. Still "new" by industry measures, she's navigating the self-publishing as a co-author and solo writer. She will share some of her missteps, success and "wish I would have sooners."
She and her husband Gregg live on their family farm in Adrian, Texas, just South of the Route 66 Mid-point. They have two kids in college - smart, funny, sarcastic and independent creatures who appear frequently and not always voluntarily in her blog posts and social media updates.
Once a die-hard true crime/murder mystery junkie. She scoffed at romance novels, "Anyone can do that!" until a friend challenged her to write romantic fiction...and there the story begins. Writing and editing skills learned in college quickly revived when she wrote a well-received contemporary romance novella, Stay, for an online forum. She began to read romance novels, consuming some of everything under the romance umbrella. She would plow through an author's series in a matter of days or weeks: the romantic suspense of Nora Roberts, Christina Dodd, and Sandra Brown; the paranormals of JR Ward and Sherilynn Kenyon while continuing to add to the body count with Michael Connolly, Karin Slaughter, John Sanford and others. She boasts an impressive audio library that feeds her literary cravings and keeps the dust bunnies at bay.
Often called a daydreamer by teachers, she now commandeers a corner of the dining table to write. KR collaborates with, CC Cedras and SA Young, on a series of contemporary romantic suspense novels and is working on getting new stories out of her head as fast as they come to her.
