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 »

Overall this is a lot of fun, even though the prose can get a little dry at times. Usually in books like this I find the artwork to be a disappointment, but not so in this case; the illustrations and paintings were consistently amazing. The Targaryen ...more

And so my love-hate relationship with Rachel Morgan and the Hollows comes to an end. I was really aggravated by Rachel's attitude for about 2/3 of the book, then in the final third I was able to just kind of go with it and remember what I liked about ...more
Karen Mead is on page 418 of 462 of The Witch With No Name: Okay, I've basically stopped live tweeting this book, because if I continued, it would just be "Rachel is a moron" typed a bunch more times, and I think you get the idea.

Seriously though, "Rachel! Leave that area before the mob erupts!" "No! I'm going to yell at the screen impotently and call MORE attention to myself!"
