Struggling to stay creative, I trained my left-hand so I could continue to produce art; while at the same time beginning work on The Bunco Club. I’ve always loved to write so when one door closed, I jumped at the chance to open a new one.

Karen's Recent Updates

Only Time Will Tell by Jeffrey Archer
"I do love a good saga! I haven't read a Jeffery Archer in years so this is a real treat. I do prefer my series books to be able to stand alone. Be warned, this book ends with a cliff hanger. The good news is I was able to start book 2 right way! "
