Karen grew up in a small town in rural Ontario reading mystery novels. She loves small town life and learned everything she knows about what makes people tick working in retail.
After taking her first beading course, she decided to combine her two passions, creating the perfect beaded necklace and characters that make her readers laugh.
Her new series is about a first-time beading shop owner caught up in helping a lovable group of local friends solve crimes before the town police.
She is a member of Sisters in Crime, Crime Writers of Canada, Romance Writers of America, and Toronto Romance Writers.
Her stories are similar to Janet Evanovich, Joanne Fluke, Misty Simon, and Carolyn L. Dean.
