About the authors:

Kristoffer Polaha first received attention for his portrayal of John F. Kennedy, Jr. in the TV movie, America’s Prince: The John F. Kennedy Jr. Story, opposite Portia de Rossi.  He is best-known for his long starring role in the critically acclaimed series Life Unexpected (The CW). Other TV series credits include Get Shorty with Ray Romano and Chris O’Dowd, the limited series Condor opposite William Hurt and Max Irons, The CW’s Ringer (Sarah Michelle Gellar) and Valentine, as well as North Shore (FOX). In addition to co-starring with Rainn Wilson in Backstrom (FOX), he had a multi-season role on the acclaimed series Mad Men (AMC) and Castle (ABC). Polaha is also well-known for starring in Hallmark Channel movies such as Dater’s Handbook with Meghan Markle, and the Mystery 101 franchise on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. He has appeared in numerous independent features, including Where Hope Grows, Devil’s Knot (Colin Firth, Reese Witherspoon), and the Tim Tebow film, Run the Race. He has a featured role opposite Gal Gadot in Wonder Woman 1984 and the forthcoming Jurassic World: Dominion.

Anna Gomez was born in the Philippines and was educated abroad. She is Chief Financial Officer for global advertising company Leo Burnett Worldwide. Under the pen name Christine Brae, Anna has published six novels, has an established fan base and dedicated following. Her titles rank in the Top 100 months following their release. Her last three novels, In This LifeEight Goodbyes, and The Year I Left, have won literary awards and were immediate bestsellers on Amazon, ranking #1 across multiple categories.

Moments Like This is about Andrea Matthews who, after finding herself unemployed and newly single, drastically changes her corporate life plan and moves to paradise. Reinventing your life is not easy for anyone and as we are rediscovering ourselves in the wake of the pandemic, it’s a good time to hunker down with this beautiful love story. Kris Polaha and Anna Gomez give us a new, heartfelt angle on love and life.
