About this author

Karen Booth is a Midwestern girl transplanted in the South, raised on 80s music, Judy Blume, and the films of John Hughes. An early preoccupation with rock ‘n’ roll led her to spend her twenties working her way from intern to executive in the music industry. Much of her writing revolves around the world of backstage passes and band dynamics. When she isn't creating fictional musicians, she's listening to music with her kids, honing her Southern cooking skills or sweet-talking her astoundingly supportive husband into whipping up a batch of cocktails.

If you aspire to be a published writer or author, my best advice is to not give up, especially with the writing. If the writing isn't there, if you haven't put every ounce of sweat you can muster into your book, it won't get you very far. This business is built on rejection and that's not just for those looking to be published. Established, successful authors are rejected every day. You have to look beyond it. Build a support system. Befriend other writers. Educate yourself about the business. Most importantly, write your butt off, and don't give up. It's so easy to give up. Don't do it. You never know what opportunities lie ahead! (less)

Up to a little mischiefon Rock ‘n’ Roll High School today, featuring an interview with the fictional Frank DeLuca, one of the heroes in Margaret Ethridge’s amazing book Paramour. (Yes, there’s more than one hero in Paramour, at least from where I’m sitting.) I was so excited when Margaret told me that this particular book was going to be part of a boxed set. I was even more excited to find out...
