Karen’s fascination with werewolves, vampires, witches, ghosts, and all things supernatural began with the childhood classics. She gobbled up everything from The Haunting of Hill House to the Narnia series, from Dracula to Rebecca. As a writer, however, she stuck to non-fiction; working as a newspaper and magazine reporter and editor, and in 2004 opening her own publishing company.The Patient Wolf is her first fiction novel and of course, it features a very sexy werewolf.
When not working on her fantasy series, Karen is CEO of Open Door Publications, an independent book publishing company founded in 2004. In the last 12 years Open Door Publications has published almost 50 books on a wide variety of topics, including Karen’s three-book series for authors, Write Your Book!, Finish Your Book (with Lorette Pruden, PhD) and Sell Your Book!
In 2015 Karen expanded her publishing company to include a new imprint, Can’t Put It Down Books, which focuses on fresh, exciting fiction including paranormal and fantasy, romance and LGBT titles. In its first eight months Can’t Put It Down Books has published five new fiction titles with three more scheduled by the end of 2016.
Karen’s company also sponsors a yearly Winter Writers’ Weekend designed to let authors meet and learn from experts in the publishing world. The three-day event is held in New Hope, PA Information on the weekend can be found at www.WinterWritersWeekend.com.
