Kris Jayne is a devoted writer, reader, and traveler. She spends her days blissfully sweating out the writing process in the Dallas area with her dogs, Otis the Shih Tzu, Rocco the Terrier, and Red the Foxy Mutt.
Her passion for writing is only matched by her passion for the adventures of travel. In 2008, she let a friend talk her into sleeping outside for the first time in her life when she climbed Mount Kilimanjaro.
P.S. If you’re buying her a gift, she has a penchant for single-malt Scotch and scarves.
On a recent trip to London (research for this novella and a future novel), my friend and I went shopping at the famous Harrod's of London. We bought zero clothing. I searched and searched and found only ONE price tag on a skirt. It was a $600 ultra mini. Near as I could tell, you wouldn't know what the damage was to your wallet until you checked out with your items. Kind of Russian roulette with your credit card. Yikes. Alexa is braver than I.
