Meet the Author

Diana lives with her family in a small seaside community north of Wellington, New Zealand, with two cocker spaniels who bark at everything and a tortoise-shell cat who teases them mercilessly.

She works full time as a writer of contemporary and medieval romantic fiction and is currently writing a medieval novella, a sheikh romance and two more books in the Italian Lovers series. All at the same time! More books in The Mackenzies and Desert Kings series are planned for 2014.

If you'd like an email letting you know when new books are published, you can subscribe to Diana's newsletter on her website: wwww.dianafraser.net.


I live in the Coolest Little Capital in the World (a.k.a Wellington, New Zealand) where I’ve yet to be buried under my to-be-read book pile by our infamous wind—my Kindle’s a lifesaver! Married to a wonderfully supportive IT guy (who doesn’t mind cooking dinner while his wife mutters to herself and hammers away at the keyboard), we have two teens who would love to be surgically linked to their electronic devices.

As a teenager I devoured novel after novel in my maths class, which explains why I still don’t understand using the alphabet in equations. I discovered a stack of tattered paperbacks hidden in my mother’s wardrobe featuring scantily clad women wrapped around bare-chested hunks. Who needs a pimply-faced teenage boyfriend when you can have book boyfriends, right? So as a child I got my first taste of Happily Ever After in fairy-tales, but after reading romance—I was hooked.

Fuelled by copious amounts of coffee, I’m now the author of contemporary romantic fiction set predominantly in New Zealand. Small-towns, close communities, and families are a big part of the heart-warming stories I love to write. Oh, and hot, down-to-earth heroes—real Kiwi men, in other words.

When I’m not writing, thinking about writing, or procrastinating about writing, I can be found reading sexy books of all romance genres and nibbling on smuggled chocolate bars. What? You were expecting me to say free-dive training, hiking the world-famous Rakiura track on Stewart Island, and restoring classic cars? Nope, sorry. I’ll leave such excitement to my characters as they explore their worlds and find the love of their lives.


Janet Elizabeth Henderson is a Scot living in New Zealand and married to a
Dutch man – it can get a little confusing in her house! She has two little
girls and a menagerie of animals that keep her busy during the daylight
hours. At night, when everyone is asleep, Janet writes contemporary
romance. Her main aim is to make herself laugh so loudly that she wakes
her husband - it’s payback for his snoring! Janet trained as a fine
artist, has worked all over the world and – like some of her characters – has been fired
from too many jobs to count. Janet’s main hobbies are reading, painting
and talking – and not always in that order.

So far Janet has published four books - Mad Love, Laura's Big Break, The Davina Code and Lingerie Wars. Lingerie Wars is the first in a new series, which is set in Scotland. Janet is also the winner of Romance Writers of America's Silken Sands Award for Laura's Big Break.


Joanne Hill started off writing for local and national magazines before deciding to write her first novel. Naturally it was a romance - what could be better than a happy-ever-after?
A long time fan of Mills and Boon, her project for her Masters degree looked at the relationship between Mills and Boon category novels and readers advisory in public libraries. She lives in New Zealand with her family.


If it's fine, Kris gardens. If it's wet, she writes. And if the writing's going well, the garden can look after itself...

Kris writes sizzling contemporary romances, and is the current membership secretary for Romance Writers of New Zealand. Her first six books are set at least partly in the capital city of Wellington so she can make use of the beautiful harbor in the plots. These books make up her 'Wicked in Wellington' series. There's a boxed set of three to save you money, and the first two have just been translated into Spanish. More to follow!

She's also written the 'Heartlands' series - the girls who live deep in the New Zealand countryside. There's 'Her Man with Iceberg Eyes' and 'Christmas Holiday Husband', and 'More than the Money'. She's currently writing the second of her 'Sheikhs of Al Sounam' series.

Kris has written all her life - from her autobiography at twelve, to her own special wedding service, to short stories published in mass-circulation magazines and broadcast on National Radio in New Zealand. She has a background as an advertising copywriter and a decor specialist.

During the past eight years she's produced a selection of racy romantic novels, and publishing them through Smashwords has been the ideal answer to share them with the world.

I have lived in New Zealand’s beautiful farming country all my life. After growing up in rural South Auckland I married Martin, and together we’ve farmed sheep, cattle, dairy cows and run a kiwifruit orchard. This rural lifestyle provides a rich source of settings and inspiration for my stories.

For many years we’ve been based in the Waikato/Bay of Plenty region – an area famed for productive land, generous rainfall, beautiful beaches, abundant seafood and lush verdant growth.

The Bay, stretching from East Cape to the tip of the Coromandel Peninsular, was named by Captain James Cook in the 1700′s when local Maori tribes provided his crew with food and hospitality, a trait that persists among its inhabitants to this day.

An ardent fan of romance, I love exploring human hopes and frailties, aspirations, love and laughter. Why Romance? To me, first and last, family matters. And Romance is all about reaffirming and celebrating family values.

I enjoy reading and writing about people who overcome adversity and commit to a relationship. I firmly believe there are romance heroes because I have one at home.

As a mother of five, sister to six siblings, and aunt to twenty (and that’s only on my side of the family) I know that the best things in life never come easy. Intimate experience of grief and anguish of life’s trials and the joy of overcoming tragedy shine through in my emotionally gripping novels.

Writing has always been a major part of my life. For years I wrote a Country Comment column for The New Zealand Herald and freelanced on local and regional newspapers in the Bay. Years living in small towns with all their joys, trials and tribulations add an extra dimension to stories.


Serenity Woods lives in the sub-tropical Northland of New Zealand with her wonderful husband and gorgeous teenage son. She writes contemporary romances with both heat and heart, and is a member of the Romance Writers of New Zealand. She would much rather immerse herself in reading or writing romance than do the dusting and ironing, which is why it’s not a great idea to pop round if you have any allergies.
