Karen Bush Gibson (also known as K.B. Gibson and Karen Gibson) has been writing, well, forever. She has written a little bit of everything, but got her start writing articles and features for magazines. Karen began writing children's nonfiction in 2001 with Capstone and loves bringing nonfiction to life for kids.

Karen has more than 30 books published (stopped counting at 30) and stays so busy that she's having trouble returning to her other love, mystery writing. "A Class on Murder" was released in 2012, and the adventures of Ronnie Raven haven't made it past her computer yet, but soon...

And just exploring all the nooks and crannies of Hogwarts would be a blast. But right now, I would have to say the Yorkshire moors of Wuthering Heights. Atmosphere really adds to fiction. When it's done really well, the setting is like another character for us to get to know. I think that's the case with Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights.(less)
