About this author

Karen Rivers is too thrown by the "Date of Death" drop down that has appeared below her name in the editing section of this page to actually write anything about her life. When she recovers, this box will be filled with imperative biographical information and may include SECRETS and probably also a few LIES. Now she is going to sit back and anxiously track that "Date of Death" box in case a date suddenly appears, foretelling her imminent doom.

I have a friend who lives in England who is a lot like me in many ways and originally, we were going to write the book together (she'd do Ruby and I'd do Ruth) but it didn't work out like that. But a little bit of her is in Ruby and a little bit of me is in Ruth, definitely. (less)

I have some books coming out in 2016 and 2017 that aren't connected, so I'm working really hard on those ones right now, but after that... maybe. I'd love to write about Freddie Blue Anderson but I just haven't had a chance yet! (less)

My son has suddenly developed a very specific fear of singing in front of people. This fear developed sometime this morning between brushing his teeth and OH MY GOD PUT YOUR SHOES ON WE HAVE TO GO OR WE WILL BE LATE. (We were late.)



He has an incredible voice.



The other day, he was clowning around, singing a song from a show (Annie, maybe, but I can't remember what it was) and his voice actual...

“We’re all seeking that special person who is right for us. But if you’ve been through enough relationships, you begin to suspect there’s no right person, just different flavors of wrong. Why is this? Because you yourself are wrong in some way, and you seek out partners who are wrong in some complementary way. But it takes a lot of living to grow fully into your own wrongness. And it isn’t until you finally run up against your deepest demons, your unsolvable problems—the ones that make you truly who you are—that we’re ready to find a lifelong mate. Only then do you finally know what you’re looking for. You’re looking for the wrong person. But not just any wrong person: it's got to be the right wrong person—someone you lovingly gaze upon and think, “This is the problem I want to have.”

I will find that special person who is wrong for me in just the right way.”
