NYT and USA Today bestselling author Kate Pearce was born in England in the middle of a large family of girls and quickly found that her imagination was far more interesting than real life. After acquiring a degree in history and barely escaping from the British Civil Service alive, she moved to California and then to Hawaii with her kids and her husband and set about reinventing herself as a romance writer.
She is known for both her unconventional heroes and her joy at subverting romance clichés. In her spare time she self publishes science fiction erotic romance, historical romance, and whatever else she can imagine. You can find Kate at her website at www.katepearce.com, on Facebook as Kate Pearce, and on Twitter as Kate4queen.

Q: How did you get started writing?
I’ve always made stuff up. I believe they called that day dreaming at school LOL. I started writing seriously when we moved to the U.S. in 2000. I couldn’t work at that point and I wanted to try and see if I could make a success of it. It took me 5 years to get my first book published but it was worth it.
Q: What do you like most about being a writer?
I like not having to go into a cubicle each day and get dressed up. I like being able to work around my four kids schedules and be home with them. I really like making stuff up and getting paid for it. LOL
Q: What is a typical day for you when you’re working on a novel?
A typical day-I get up at 6, feed cats, let dog out, wake up son #2 take him to school. Come back wake daughter and husband up, take daughter to school. Come home, do email, check websites, message boards do business stuff. Then I write for about 2 hours, hopefully without interruptions. Then I pick up my daughter from school, spend time with her, pick up my son, check email, make dinner and read in bed, fall asleep, repeat.
