About Me

Thanks for visiting my website and blog! I’m a writer with three novels published so far. I enjoy traveling and often this involves a cruise ship or a boat ride. That’s probably why my first two novels involved a woman going on voyage into the great unknown! Even my third novel involves some time onboard a yacht. Details about each book are on separate website pages.

Quite a handful but I’m ready to welcome more!

Lately, I’ve been photo-blogging about fascinating libraries, both public and private, that were unexpectedly lots of fun to visit. If you’d like to get these random, monthly traveling library and other unusual blog updates, click the follow button at the bottom of this page or under the blogs.

For questions or comments on my books or blog, please contact me. I set up a page with how to do it. It gets lonely writing all alone with just Maddie-my-Muse. I love to get feedback especially if it’s upbeat. Negatives reviews really hurt. 

A Trio of Unusual Novels

If you want an annual or so update announcing a new book, please sign up for my email list. I’m afraid I’m not a quarterly newsletter kind of gal. I’d rather be writing another novel.

All the best from a Karen who cares,

Taking a break with a mermaid reading one of my novels! An unexpected and perfectly inspiring gift from a fan.
