About this author

Karen Mead (1982-) was born on Long Island, New York and still lives there because she's too lazy to move. As a journalist/editor, Karen lives the double life of writer by day...writer by night. Okay, so maybe it's not much of a double life. When not writing for work or for fun, Karen also enjoys reading, drawing, playing games, playing with her My Little Ponies (which she liked BEFORE it was cool) and watching anime.

Random Acts of Sorcery, Book 3 of The Familiar Series, is coming along nicely, I think. It's coming out different than I anticipated, but I think that's good; it means the characters are doing their own thing instead of letting me check the obvious "hrrrm, this should probably happen in the next book," boxes.

TPWBM came out in June 2012 and SOW came out in July of 2013, so I'd like to have this... Read more of this blog post »

I almost quit the book when I discovered it had characters named Rhage, Tohrment and Phury. Then I said to myself "Oh come on, LIVE A LITTLE!" and finished it.

This was fun, but it read almost like self-parody to me. There's the names for one thing, b...more
