Keris Stainton was born in Canada, and brought up on the Wirral. She now lives in the Ribble Valley with her husband and two young sons, who make her laugh every day. Sometimes intentionally.
As a freelance journalist, Keris has written for publications as diverse as Practical Parenting, Scarlet and The Daily Express, and edited the women’s book site, Trashionista, for two years.
In 2005 she gave up her job as an administrator in Corporate Recovery and Personal Insolvency (which is exactly as exciting as it sounds) to write full time.
Bonnier publishing released Counting Stars in 2015 and have new YA novels, including One Italian Summer, coming in June 2017.
Catnip publishes her Reel Friends series which features Starring Kitty and Spotlight on Sunny.
Della Says: OMG!, Jessie Hearts NYC and Emma Hearts LA are all published by Orchard Books.
Keris also writes under the name Esme Taylor, and with this, has published two e-books: All I Want For Christmas and Baby, One More Time.
The first in Keris' two-book deal with Bookouture, If You Could See Me Now, was published in August 2017 and the second, It Had To Be You will follow in December 2017.
