Writing has been Karen's passion since the fourth grade when she vowed she would one day "be a writer." She took a circuitous route to the writing profession, however.
She always wrote during her school yearsâ€”poetry and short stories for the most partâ€”but rather than major in English, she studied mathematics, physics and computer science. After earning a BA in math from a California state college and an MS in computer sciences from UCLA, Karen worked as a software engineer for nearly fifteen years.
With a move from the Los Angeles area to northern California, Karen and her husband agreed she would stay home with their two sons and write full-time. It took four years of hard work, but in 1997, Karen finally sold her first romance novel. She sold four others within a year, but then that flurry of sales was followed by a nail-biting two-year dry spell during which Karen sold nothing, nada, zip.
Before Karen decided that plumbing might not be such a bad profession after all, she struck gold again with a call from Silhouette books. In addition to writing for the Silhouette Special Edition series, Karen also works with L.A. producers on screenwriting projects. She's also had a lot of fun producing her own short films.
Karen's real-life romance is still going strongâ€”her marriage is well past the two-decade mark. With one son married and the other poised to leave the nest, Karen looks forward to writing more books and spending more time with her husband, Gary and her beautiful Andalusian/Morgan cross mare, Belle.
