About Jamie


I love to write. I discovered my passion for the written word in the third grade when I penned a patriotic poem about the United States. It wasn’t until my preteen years, while sneaking historical romances off my mom’s bookshelves to read during summer vacation, that I found my chosen genre. I’ve published 22 novels and counting, and I still get a thrill every time the words are flowing easily. Originally from Kentucky, I now live with my husband and three children in Northern California. Aside from writing, I also love to read, jog (never while reading), and take care of animals. We currently have a dog, a cat, and several rabbits living with us, but we also foster animals for our local shelter and can often be found with an extra dog (or in one memorable case, a pig) in the house.

Still Curious? Have burning questions you need answered?

Do you only write romance novels?

I’ve published two young adult novels as Jamie Kain. Visit my young adult fiction website, http://jamiekain.com for more information.

How long does it take you to write a book, anyway?

I’m envious of authors who have an easy answer for this, such as “three months.” I have written a novel in as little as a couple of months, and I have take a lot longer. I have one book that I’m still pecking away at after 3 years. Yeesh. My favorite thought on this topic is not my own, but that of a writer friend: “It takes me as long as the publisher contract says I have to write the book.”

Why is your website so jacked up?

I maintain it myself, and I far prefer writing books to posting stuff about them on the internet. This is a serious character flaw, but I’m working on it.
