Kiersten Hallie Krum
Kiersten Hallie Krum writes smart, sharp, and sexy romantic suspense. She is the author of the prestigious RONE award finalist, Wild on the Rocks, and its follow-up, SEALed With a Twist. She is also a past winner of the Emily Award for unpublished novelists.
Kiersten graduated from Gordon College where she majored in both history and English, including a year’s study at Oxford University, which means she’s knows a little bit about a lot of things concerning people long dead. She also completed a minor in theater for which she performed a one-woman show. Kiersten graduated from New York University with a Master of Publishing.
A member of the Romance Writers of America, the New Jersey Romance Writers, and the Long Island Romance Writers, Kiersten has been working in book publishing for more than twenty years in marketing and promotion. At other times in her career, she’s worked back stage for a regional theater, managed advertorials for a commerce newspaper in the World Trade Center, and served as senior editor for a pharmaceutical advertising agency.
Writer, singer, editor, traveler, tequila drinker, and cat herder, Kiersten avoids pen names since keeping her multiple personalities straight is hard enough work. As an adolescent, she cut her teeth on Woodiwiss, Lindsey, Garwood, McKnight, Devereux, Coulter, and other scions of the romance industry. She knew then, much to her mother’s chagrin, that this was the world for her.
Born and bred in New Jersey (and accent free), Kiersten sings as easily, and as frequently, as she breathes, drives fast with the windows down and the music up, likes to randomly switch accents for kicks and giggles, and would be happy to spend all her money traveling for the rest of her life.
