Karen Tomlinson is the USA Today Bestselling author of The Goddess and the Guardians YA fantasy books.

Karen adores books and will read any genre that catches her eye. She was whisked away by fairies as a child, has been a dragon rider and grew up learning to fight. (This bit’s true!) She likes nothing better than an epic fantasy full of hot warriors and romance especially when it is set in a magical and dangerous world.

Karen lives in Derbyshire, England, (think Mr Darcy territory) with her husband, twin girls and her dalmatian, Poppy. When she is not busy writing, reading (or eating cake and drinking coffee) Karen likes to keep active. She has been practicing Shotokan karate since being thirteen, loves running, mountain biking and walking i

I read A LOT about hooking readers and agents in when I first started writing my book. ABOVAM went through many changes whilst I 'found' my writing style. In the end I gave up trying to second guess what everyone might want to read and went with what I would want to hook me in. I am an avid reader. I love books, mainly fantasy but any books with a good start and engaging characters.
My answer is I tried a few but as I got to know my characters and world better the beginning came to me and when that image was planted of a warrior running from a fearful enemy, through a dark forest, to save the only person in the world he loves it stuck and wouldn't leave!
Hope that helps...:)(less)

Ernest Hemingway
“All good books are alike in that they are truer than if they had really happened and after you are finished reading one you will feel that all that happened to you and afterwards it all belongs to you: the good and the bad, the ecstasy, the remorse and sorrow, the people and the places and how the weather was. If you can get so that you can give that to people, then you are a writer.”
Ernest Hemingway
