Kristine Raymond

Hi, there.  I'm Kristine Raymond, and, as a child, I spent many a Saturday afternoon watching westerns on T.V.  (The Big Valley is still my favorite.)  I love the West so much that when I was in my early twenties, I packed my bags and moved to Flagstaff on a whim.  Actually, it was a toss-up between Arizona and Montana, and after coming across a picture of aspen trees on Mt. Elden decked out in autumnal gold, I chose the former.

So it was no surprise when I began writing in the fall of 2013 that the setting for Here to Stay became late 1800s Arizona Territory.  The wild west was alive and well in my imagination, and I brought that to the page.  Gritty, real-to-life action and romance sweep through all nine books in the Hidden Springs series; a saga which spans thirty-three years.

I've since branched out in my writing to other genres, but my first love will always be historical western romance.  In fact, the idea for a new book has been taking shape in my brain over the past few months.  Hmmm.  Perhaps the beginning of a new series?
