I'm a dreamer with her head in the clouds.   I am a dedicated, addicted fan of the cult classic TV western "Alias Smith and Jones."   This series is the basis for my fanfiction stories here on Wattpad.  It's hard to put something out there for the world to see and criticize that you've worked so hard on and put your heart into.  So thanks to all of you who encouraged me to share it.   I write for entertainment purposes only.  But if I can help  one other person escape to a simpler time and place and experience a little romance and adventure at the same time,  well then my job here is done.  I must also mention my love and dedication to the late Peter Ellstom Deuel who starred in "Alias Smith and Jones" as my hero, Hannibal Heyes.  Sadly, Peter (know mostly as Pete Duel) took his own life at the age of 31, leaving a huge hole in the hearts of so many.  So I dedicate this story to him.  And because he had such killer, sexy dimples, all of my smilies have a dimple. :') 

Peace and love and dimpled smiles,
Karen :')

About me:
I am a melancholy person. I tend to get blue and gloomy sometimes. I believe in passion but not true love.I love to sleep. I am a junk food junkie. I sometimes think I am a psychic medium. I think I get messages from beyond. I'm not a people person. I'm not a morning person. I prefer to be alone. I am a good cook.I admire people who can go through adversity and still smile. I'm a terrible house keeper. I love perfume. My life long dream is to have someone write a song about me. I believe that love is what we do more than what we say or feel. I'm not easily impressed. I'm my harshest critic. Can't live without music. Prefer cats to dogs. Love rainy days and thunder storms. I'm wife to a great husband and mom to 3 wonderful sons. And I believe that God is the only one you can really count on.

a very brief outtake scene from "Thief of My Heart"

Hello, everyone.  I want to say a very special thank you to all of you who have been leaving me messages and asking about my well being.  That means so much to me.  I have not logged into Wattpad for a very long time.  I am so sorry to leave you all hanging like that, but I honestly didn't think anyone would notice me being gone.  I have been dealing with on and off bouts of depression and some other personal issues but I am doing okay.   I vowed to finish LLG and I am going to do my best to start back writing again soon.  I have a new obsession in Bruce/Natasha fanfiction (that's from the Avengers in case there's anyone who doesn't know).   I was never happy with LLG and would love to do so many things differently.  So bear with me as I try to get my mojo back and pray that my muse will once again grace me with his presence (yes my muse is a male)!!    I hope you have all been well and happy.   Peace and love to all of you.

Hello! I love your works here in wattpad. You know the first time I've read TOMH I thought who could ever write such a wonderful love story? I mean I actually cried at the scene when Hannibal left Evie thinking that he's not good enough for her and such. And then I cried again when they were reunited. There were such wonderful moments in the book that I can't help but come back and read your book again and again! lol;) 
      I hope you are feeling well and I wish that when you're feeling better you can come back to wattpad. But no rush. The important thing is your well being. and when you're ready to join wattpad again I have no doubt that you would do just that. And you stopped LLG with a major cliffhanger, and we're still hanging! lol;)  Like I said, no rush! I truly absolutely love your work! Keep up the good work!
I finished TOMH, and thought it was the best book i've read on wattpad..i didn't realise there's a sequel! :O but i saw its on hold, well for 2years now 
      :( hope you start writing again.
Hi Karen! 
      I hope all has been well, and if they haven't been, then I hope that God has given you the strength to pull through this tough time. I would love to continue reading LLG, but more importantly for me and probably most of your fans, I hope that you'll feel better and stronger and things will look up for you. Whenever you're ready to come back to wattpad, I'll be waiting patiently to read more of your stories. God bless and praying for you!
