Hi! My name's Karen, and I write humorous, light YA sci-fi. I have a fun, twisty time travel series out with St. Martin's Press. LOOP is out now, and its sequel TWIST releases 3/31/15.

When not writing or reading, I love lightsaber dueling with my two sons and forcing my husband to watch BBC shows with me.

I've been many things in my life: an archery instructor, drummer for the shortest-lived garage band in history, and a shockingly bad tic-tac-toe player.

I'll usually update on Mondays. I love to answer questions and hear your thoughts in comments.

These are my hang-out spots on the internets (or click through my website below...all social links are at the top of my site) --

A final, quick note: My novels have been through multiple rounds of professional editing, copyediting, and proofreading. Wattpad is a place for me to have fun and experiment. My stories here won't be as polished, but I still hope that you have as much fun reading them as I've had creating them. :)
