Kris Bryant grew up a military brat living in several different countries before her family settled down in the Midwest when she was twelve. Books were her only form of entertainment overseas, and she read anything and everything within her reach. Reading eventually turned into writing when she decided she didn't like the way some of the novels ended and wanted to give the characters she fell in love with the endings she thought they so deserved.
Earning a BA in English from the University of Missouri, Kris focused on poetry, and eventually decided to write her own happily ever after books.
Her debut novel, Jolt, was short-listed for a Lambda Literary Award. Her second novel, Whirlwind Romance, was a Rainbow Award finalist.
