Even as a young child I was always conjuring up stories and poems, filling them with colorful characters, sometimes sharing them with any friends or family who would listen. Since then, I’ve progressed quite a bit to formulating longer and more complex stories and sharing them with much larger audiences. As a storyteller, I’m adept at using my imaginative thinking and creative flair to bring my stories to life in engaging and entertaining ways. I was born in New Orleans, Louisiana and raised by a single mom who taught be to be a strong woman. In 2007, I published my first children's book, MY RAINBOW FAMILY, under the pen name of K.R. Vance.
I blend multicultural characters into my stories.
I was inspired to write interracial romance due to my own interracial marriage to my husband, Brian, who is Dutch/Italian. I began writing in the romance genre in 2008 and I am an avid reader of D. Renee Bagby, L.Loren, Sonja B., Laurell K. Hamilton, Rae Lori, Ann Rice, Siren Allen and Charlaine Harris.
Every so often, I reinvent myself. I never stop learning, growing or changing, all to be a better me. I currently live with my husband and our two youngest children, including the family's pets of three sassy cats, one of which is our grand fur baby, and one silly, but lovable German Shepard in Central Georgia. I have traveled most of the US and visited the Caribbean Islands, The Dominican Republic and Mexico, but there is no place without my family that I want to call home.
