I was born, raised and educated in Iowa, concentrating on the visual arts. I have a BFA in design and drawing from the University of Iowa in Iowa City (missed the Writers Workshop altogether... too bad!) I then moved to Sweden to do graduate work in scene painting. I never completed that degree or painted a single set, but worked as an illustrator and designer in Malmö, Sweden for nine years. New York City was next, and I continued working in print design. It was during this period that I became passionate about writing and eventually received am MFA in Creative Writing at Goddard College in Vermont. The Stockholm Octavo is my first novel.

Quotes by Karen Engelmann  (?)

“People come into our lives without our bidding, and stay without our invitation. They give us knowledge we do not seek, gifts we do not want. But we need them all the same.” She”
Karen Engelmann, The Stockholm Octavo

“But there was change in the air, and whether for good or ill, change always quickens the pulse and sharpens the senses.”
Karen Engelmann, The Stockholm Octavo

“Science and magic are always close, Mr. Larsson, one chasing the other. Last year's evil is now a property of physics. The heavens that were once the realm of gods are revealed as planets and stars, moving in precise mathematical orbits. And yet people perform feats that cannot be explained: heal from deadly contagion, lift fallen trees off their comrades in battle, see visions that portent to future, die and rise again. We are wise to keep an open mind to both.”
Karen Engelmann, The Stockholm Octavo
