Karissa lives in North Carolina with her kid, her husband, the occasional in-law, and a very hairy husky. Some of her favorite things are coffee, chocolate, and super heroes. She can quote Princess Bride verbatim. She loves to read and has a sweet tooth for fantasy, sci-fi, and anything in between. Sometimes her husband convinces her to put down the books and take the motorcycles out for a spin. When it snows, you'll find her on the slopes.

Thanks, Lillian. I am so glad you liked it.

I have finished book 2, and my faithful and amazing beta readers are making the draft manuscript bleed with their red pens right now.

I hope to have it cleaned up and submitted to my publisher very soon.(less)

Sarah, I am so happy you love the series. That just makes my day!

Funny you ask about book 3 because I was just talking about this on my FB page a few days ago. Good News: 1st draft of Book 3 is done and might even have a title. Bad news: I've got to get it to beta readers before I hand it over to my publisher.

HOWEVER, In the meantime, I'm working on another Norse Chronicles project that I hope will tide everyone over until Book 3 is released next year.(less)
