I met Karen at Amelie's French Bakery and Cafe on a lovely, sunny afternoon. She bought the lattes and the best, buttery, crispy, tasty pastry things I'd ever eaten. No lie. So good. Everyone should get to do their work sitting at the bar at a french bakery, clicking away on their laptop... well, only if you have a good deal of self control! Canadian born to large family, Karen moved to the woods of North Carolina where she worked as a computer programmer by day and pursued her love of writing by night. Karen wrote her first book at 14 years old and hasn't stopped writing since. She self published her first novel, Relentless, that turned into a series, that took off in the young adult paranormal world, and before she knew it, she was getting the call that her series had hit the New York Times Bestseller list! This is an achievement for any author, and even more so for one who is self published. Now Karen is a full time author, and is working on companion books to the series. She loves to bake and has the two loveliest German Shepherds you ever did meet.
Karen was interviewed for InD'tale Magazine and appeared in their July 11th issue. If you're a fan of young adult paranormal stories, you have to check her out. Here's what we captured for that interview. To read the interview you can find it here.
