Books By This Author

β€œA Whisper to a Scream takes us on a roller coaster ride of emotions. This tale of two women, one already a mother and one who desperately wants to become a mother, accurately depicts the raw human emotion that comes with the prospect of becoming a parent. My heart ached for both Annie and Sarah as the course of their lives was altered by cruel fate. I admired the strength they showed despite everything they encountered. They both proved that what does not kill us truly does make us stronger. Karen's writing is smooth and entertaining, leading the reader right to the heart of the story. Her words tell us of the true strength of the human spirit.”

β€œIn this book, we get to know Catherine of the Bibliophiles. Her story is one of breaking free and finding herself. In a desperate attempt to break from from Burkesville, WI, Catherine travels from one coast to the other. On her own for the first time, she makes a life for herself and learns some important, sometimes difficult, lessons along the way. I very much enjoy Karen's writing style and touch of humor throughout. I look forward to more from her!”
