A full time author, Kirsten is a former customs officer and antiques dealer, and who has also dabbled in film and television.
Her historical time-slip series - The Old Curiosity Shop Series (which includes Fifteen Postcards, The Last Letter and Telegram Home), has been described as 'Time Travellers Wife meets Far Pavilions', and 'Antiques Roadshow gone viral'.
Kirsten released her bestselling gothic horror novel Painted in 2017, with her medical thriller, Doctor Perry, following in 2018. Both books hit #1 in the Canadian and Australian horror charts.
Coming mid 2019 is The Ruination Of Art, the first instalment in Kirsten's next historical fiction series.
Kirsten lives in New Zealand with her husband, her daughters, two rescue cats, and can usually be found procrastinating on Twitter.
