Karna Small Bodman | Up Close Political Thrills and Suspense
August 20, 2007
I was scheduled to be in the staff car with White House Press Secretary Jim Brady on March 30, 1981 – the day of the assassination  Read More...

The Honorable Karna Small Bodman served in The Reagan White House for six years – first as Deputy Press Secretary and later as Senior Director of the National Security Council. When she left, she was the highest-ranking woman on the White House staff.

She was also on the air for 15 years as a radio and TV news reporter and anchor in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., and did political commentary for ABC in New York. Now she’s writing political thrillers. Her first novel, CHECKMATE, was inspired by her White House experiences and features scenes in the Oval Office, Situation Room, Georgetown restaurants as well as hot spots overseas. New York Times bestselling author Tess Gerritsen describes it this way, “A White House insider injects high tension into this high-stakes thriller.” The sequel, GAMBIT, features the same characters with yet another foreign policy crisis to solve.

Karna has been on a cross-country book tour with over 80 speeches and events nation-wide. She and her husband, Dick Bodman, maintain homes in Naples, FL, Washington, D.C. and Jackson, WY.
