Karen Harper is the New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author of contemporary suspense and historical novels about real British women. Published since 1982, she is a native Ohioan who has also spent thirty happy winters in Naples, Florida as a snowbird. Her current suspense series is set in Southwest Florida and the Caribbean under the title THE SOUTH SHORES SERIES.

A former high school and college level English instructor, Karen and her husband love to travel to places where she sets her novels, especially England. Her early historical fiction focused on the Tudor era, and her recent historicals examine the lives of amazing women, both lower and upper class, who lived in the Victorian and Edwardian periods. (Think Downton Abbey.) Her latest historicals are THE ROYAL NANNY and coming in October of 2017, THE IT GIRLS.

Karen has three grown stepchildren and one grandson. She and her husband grow roses and veggies ousidet her office windows, which can be a bit of a distraction in the warm months in Ohio when she should be looking at her laptop screen. Her 96-year-old mother lives nearby, so Karen's hoping for good genes to keep writing far into the future.
