In today’s show I chat with the duo who writes as Kristen Delaney about their series, working with a coauthor, and writing for the Amazon Shorts market.

About Our Guests

Kirsten Delaney was born in a small town in upstate New York in 1982. When she was 3 years old her father joined the US Navy and in short order, Kirsten lived in Florida, Illinois and Mississippi before her dad was transferred to San Diego, California.

She moved around a few times between San Diego and San Francisco until moving to the Imperial Valley of California where her father and mother found work as teachers after her dad left the Navy.

She grew up in another small town, Calipatria, California until upon graduation from high school she attended Cottey College in Nevada, Missouri, a two year women’s school.

Kicking up her heels at college, she became one of the leaders of the infamous Rat Sorority, an underground organization whose zany exploits rivaled the fraternity in the movie Animal House.

When Kirsten graduated from Cottey, she moved back to California to attend Cal State Fullerton and to marry her high school sweetheart, Javier, who was also attending Fullerton. When he graduated from Fullerton, they both moved back to Calipatria. Javier worked as a teacher, then joined the California Highway Patrol, and Kirsten worked as the Administrative Manager for a large agricultural company. They have two children, Isaac and Anelise.

The writing bug bit Kirsten early on in life and romance novels became her particular favorite when she and her mother would buy grocery bags full of Harlequin romance books from the used book store.

Kirsten now writes full-time, specializing in romance works with a large dose of mystery. She has published a five book serial featuring Detective Lexi Murphy, a strong willed arson investigator for the state of California. Her next book featuring Lexi is due for publication in just a few weeks.
