is introducing

Kristin is one of my favorite people and a pioneer chick lit author who writes books that go waaaayyy beyond "beach read" novels. Despite being a seriously busy lady, she's an honest, real, and fun person to know who gives of her time to encourage and teach writers at all levels of their craft.

I'm saving up to buy her a Beamer (after I fund my first new car) because that's the only way she'll write more Ashley Stockingdale novels. And I NEED more Ashley! ;-)

But beyond Ashley, Kristin has written numerous novels and the book we're talking about today~ The Trophy Wives Club.

I'm not a Hollywood fan, but Kristin has a way of making me care about people I'd never meet who lead lives I can't fathom. The Trophy Wives Club is a story about real emotions and heart-warming triumph. This story goes beyond bottled blondes with Louis Vuitton bags to the realistic pain of divorce and the hope of second chances.

Now for more about Kristin and her newest book, The Trophy Wives Club. Read on and then leave a note in the guestbook for your chance to win a copy of this great chick lit novel!


Kristin Billerbeck was born in Redwood City, California. She went to San Jose State University and majored in Advertising, then worked at the Fairmont Hotel in PR, a small ad agency as an account exec, and then, she was thrust into the exciting world of shopping mall marketing.

She got married, had four kids, and started writing romance novels until she found her passion: Chick Lit. She is a CBA bestselling author and two-time winner of the ACFW Book of the Year. Featured in the New York Times and USA Today, Kristin has appeared on the Today Show for her pioneering role in Christian chick lit.

Other recent books by Kristin:


Haley Cutler is the consummate trophy wife. Perhaps "was" is the more accurate term. Haley married Prince Charming when she was only twenty years old – back in the day when highlights came from an afternoon at the beach, not three hours in the salon.

When Jay first turned his eye to Haley, she was putty in his slender, graceful hands. No one ever treated her like she was important, and on the arm of Jay Cutler, she became someone people listened to and admired. Unfortunately, after seven years of marriage, her Prince Charming seems to belong to the Henry the XIII line of royalty. When Haley loses Jay, she not only loses her husband, she loses her identity.

With her first independent decision, Haley leaves LA and moves home to Northern California. Feeling freedom just within her grasp, Haley learns that her settlement payments must go through one of Jay's financial advisors, Hamilton Lowe. Haley believes he's nothing more than a spy. And the feelings of distrust are mutual. Yet somehow, Hamilton finds himself handing over the monthly checks in person, and Haley can't deny that there's a kind of tenderness and protectiveness in Hamilton that she's never experienced in a man before.

But before Haley can even consider another relationship, she must learn to accept her inherent worth, and what it is to be loved for who she is, not what's on the outside.
