Kristin Harmel is an American published author. She is a best selling author worldwide. Many of her novels have been translated into different languages for readers all over.

Born on May 4, 1979 in Boston, Massachusetts, she grew up there as well as St. Petersburg, Florida and Columbus, Ohio. She would attend the University of Florida at their College of Journalism and Communications, graduating summa cum laude and obtaining her journalism degree. She also graduated with a minor in Spanish. She has spent a significant of time living in Los Angeles in Paris. Kristin is married to her husband. They reside in Orlando along with their son.

Kristin has been writing on a professional level ever since she was sixteen years old. That is when she first started working as a sports writer. In the late nineties, she worked for a magazine set locally in Tampa Bay, Florida. She would cover NHL hockey and Major League Baseball.

After that, she wrote for several other publications. Kristin wrote for Woman’s Day, Men’s Health, and American Baby in the health and lifestyle vein. She has also written for American Way, Runner’s World, and Ladies’ Home Journal, as well as Every Day with Rachael Ray, Glamour, and Travel + Leisure.

Kristin then worked as a writer for PEOPLE magazine. She would work for the publication for over a decade. There she covered a variety of topics, from murders to football to celebrity interviews (she has interviewed Patrick Dempsey, Justin Timberlake, Ben Affleck, Matthew McConaughey, and others). She most enjoyed writing the feature “Heroes Among Us”, which covered the stories of regular people that did extraordinary things. One was on Henri Landwirth, a Holocaust survivor that had become a philanthropist. It partly inspired her novel The Sweetness of Forgetting. The 2012 book became an international best seller.

In addition to being a writer and reporter for magazines, Kristin Harmel also has worked in television. She contributed on a regular basis to The Daily Buzz, a nationally aired morning show on television. She was their travel expert and often flew abroad in her work for the show. One of these assignments was traveling to London not once but three times for the purpose on interviewing the Harry Potter film cast.

Kristin has also been on Good Morning America and other local morning television shows. She also has technically worked in the movies, appearing as an extra in 2003 for the American Idol movie– all while waiting to interview Kelly Clarkson. She also co-founded the weekly podcast and web show “Friends & Fiction”, which she co-hosts.

When not busy writing, Kristin often flies to France. She goes to the country to research her books and also doesn’t mind enjoying the wine and the pastries while she is there. She also writes one book per year for Gallery Books and Simon & Schuster.

How to Sleep with a Movie Star is the debut novel to come out from author Kristin Harmel. It was published in 2006. If you have been looking for a fun and light read with a little romance, be sure to give this book a try!

In this story, readers meet the main character of Claire Reilly. A young woman of just 26 years old, she’s got a thriving career. She’s never been more on top of the game than she is now. Working in the entertainment business, she’s one of the youngest editors and celebrity reporters out there.

Claire works for Mod Magazine, where she prides herself on always being professional. Part of her job involves being on top of all of the latest stories and interviewing handsome leading men from Hollywood. She has a relationship too, but that’s not going so hot. She lives with her boyfriend, who seems to be avoiding intimacy like it’s the plague. Still, Claire is writing articles that revolve around intimacy and relationships, even though her personal life has never been more cold.

Then Claire gets a new assignment. It’s to interview Cole Brannon, who is currently the number one hottest guy in Hollywood. She’s attempting to be professional, because it’s her job to just get the interview and get out. Although something must have gone wrong somewhere, because the next day she wakes up in Cole’s bed.

Claire has now crossed the line from just doing her job to doing something (or someone) else entirely. But the last thing that she counted on was the tabloids finding out about her one night stand. As a result, once the story is out, her life quickly gets affected.

Claire now has a lot of work to do if she’s going to get back to where she was. With her reputation altered, she’s going to find out more about herself than she thought possible. Will she be able to come out of this and get back to a good place with her life and her career? Find out by reading this book!

The Blonde Theory is a romance story from author Kristin Harmel. If you love a light and fun read, then check this book out!

Harper Roberts is the main character in this story. She’s a corporate attorney that works out of Manhattan. She has a lot going for her as well. She’s not only attractive, she’s intelligent and funny as well. She’s self aware enough to realize all of this, but she’s also wondering how it is that she possesses all of these qualities but can never seem to track down a date.

At parties, men always seem to come up and talk to her. They’re clearly attracted to her looks and maybe even the fact that she’s blonde. But apparently they’re all counting on her being a stereotypical dumb blonde, because when they find out that she’s a lawyer that went to Harvard, they all seem to look for the exit.

Her magazine editor best friend comes up with the idea of going on assignment, posing as a dumb blonde for a month to find out if her dating perspective changes. She transforms for two weeks, altering her body language, conversation, and even clothing. Will she find love? Will Harper discover that she might judge people too early as well? Find out by picking up The Blonde Theory!

    First read The Winemakers Wife.
    I cried! Loved it!
    Then the Book of Lost Names. Same!
    Now, I’m half way through The Sweetness of Forgetting, and Im not able to do anything else! This book speaks to my soul. I am off French heritage.
    Raised Catholic, but always drawn to Jewish WWII stories. This book feels so close to home.
    Kristin Harmel writes from the heart!
