Amazon classifies Karen as a Power Reader—A reader who buys more than one ebook a week. Her current favorite genre is Urban Fantasy but several genres have held this honor over her decades of reading.
A Kindle3 owner since February 2011 and writing seriously for the past three years, she has been drawn into the drama of the explosive growth of eBooks, changing Publishing Paradigm and the expanded possibilities Self Publishing eBooks brings to aspiring Authors. What a wild ride!
Karen earned a Bachelor’s of Science in Child and Family Studies or Family Social Service as a non-tradition student (euphemism for older.)
When she hit an employment dry spell due to funding for Social services cuts she began writing. The writing gets side-railed by life’s woes and lost hope since being published through traditional publishing is only available for a lucky few. Self-Publishing ebooks has reopened her dreams.
Alas, she now spends way too much time reading novels, reading about writing on social media, and creating this blog. She’s working on finding the discipline turn it all OFF and WRITE!
