Kleypas, whose father was an architect, attended Wellesley College. While studying political science, she also found the time to write her first manuscript. The months following her graduation were consumed by two major events.

First of all, the author, who was Miss Massachusetts at the time, participated in the Miss America Pagent. Even though she did not win, Kleypas walked away with the ‘Talented Nonfinalist’ prize which she got because of a song she wrote and performed during the competition.

Secondly, Kleypas hadn’t completed her novel when she left college. Fortunately, her parents kept her financially afloat for the months that followed while she attempted to complete the manuscript. Their investment was justified when the author sold the novel two months later.

That first sale was all it took to turn Kleypas into a full-time author. She started churning out novels, some of which secured respectable positions on various bestseller lists. In the years that followed, Kleypas sold millions of copies of her novels to readers, not just in the US, but around the world.

For the longest time, Kleypas wrote historical romance and little else. But after several years, she decided to experiment with contemporary romance. Kleypas wanted to challenge herself, to stretch her abilities; to explore new plots and characters.

The transition was difficult. The author had to make some alterations to her writing voice. She couldn’t use the same approach to reveal the thoughts and emotions of her protagonists. But the experience was rewarding.

Kleypas eventually went back to historical romance. But her time in the field of contemporary romance had refreshed her desire for the historical romance genre. Though, if you asked her, she would refuse to choose between the two.

Naturally, she has an affinity for historical fiction because it is so fun to write. But she cannot dismiss contemporary romance because it creates a platform for the author to tackle relevant issues.

Ultimately, they are both sub-genres of romance. So regardless of the type of novel she has decided to write, Kleypas is still pursuing her passion for love stories. She doesn’t regret her decision to write romance rather than conventional literary works.

She believes that the romance genre is a great source of joy. When her house flooded in 1998, the author and her family lost everything they owned. Her mother’s house suffered the same fate. On a trip to the store to buy certain necessities, Kleypas and her mother chose to buy novels as well. They hoped that reading would help them overcome the stress.

They could have purchased novels from any genre. But they chose romance. Kleypas felt like the occurrence had justified her decision to write romance.
