Kaylene Winter

Writing with the Chief Dog Committee


I’m an author but I also have a full-time job so you’ll catch me writing anywhere I can; whether it’s in between morning meetings at work or late nights at with my trusty sidekick (my 4-year-old Siberian Husky).

I like to keep my home a frigid 62 degrees so if I’m writing at home, I’m usually under a blanket on the couch. Hint: You can see Hint water in the background which is mentioned in the dressing room of my books.

I try to write at least 2,000 words a day which keeps me motivated to stay on schedule to get new novels finished! I keep a dog friendly office at work, so I get lots of help from the Chief Dog Committee to keep on task.

I get inspired by so many different things – especially when I travel. You can often guess where I’ve traveled that year by reading my books because the locales show up in between the pages!

I’m also inspired by the city I live in – Seattle. I was lucky enough to be a part of the influential grunge scene of the 90s as a music promoter and club booker which is probably obvious from my books. You can tell from memorabilia in my office how much I love music and I hope that that passion and my experience in the industry translates to my writing.

Kaylene Winter wrote her first Rock Star Romance novel at age 15 starring a fictionalized version of herself, her friends and their gorgeous rocker boyfriends.

After living her own rockstar life as a band manager, music promoter and mover and shaker in Seattle during the early 1990’s, Kaylene became a digital media legal strategist helping bring movies, television and music online.

Throughout her busy career, Kaylene lost herself in romance novels across all genres inspiring her to realize her life-long dream to write creatively.

In 2020, she published ENDLESS - Book 1 in the popular Less Than Zero series. She lives in Seattle with her amazing husband and Siberian Husky. She loves to travel and support charitable causes supporting arts and animals.
