Member Since

Kara Thorpe started writing as a distraction in French class and never stopped (just don’t ask her to conjugate many verbs). Born and raised in Texas, she loves all things historical, scientific, and downright geeky. Though she prefers to write short, character-driven stories, she ventured into the world of the novel with the first book of the Family Lies series "Daughter of Deception."

First Dates
Az tapped her chin as she circled the man standing still as a statue in the middle of her rarely used bedroom. She started at the top of his dark head and catalogued everything down to the polished toes of his black boots. Black jeans. Black t-shirt. Both wrinkle-free and perfectly fitted. There wasn’t anything out of place. Nothing wrong. But it didn’t seem right.“It’s close to the... Read more of this blog post »

“I see at intervals the glance of a curious sort of bird through the close set bars of a cage: a vivid, restless, resolute captive is there; were it but free, it would soar cloud-high.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre
