K. S. R. Burns is the author of THE PARIS EFFECT (Velvet Morning Press 2016), a novel about love, food, France, betrayal, adventure, and escape. (Hint: Nothing is what it seems.)

Writing as Karen Burns, she is also the author of THE AMAZING ADVENTURES OF WORKING GIRL: Real-Life Career Advice You Can Actually Use (Running Press 2009).

My first review

Don't believe authors who say, "Oh I never look at reviews." Ha. They do. We do.

So I was super pleased and happy, and relieved, when the first review for Rules for the Perpetual Diet (my new novel) appeared. Here it is, from Kirkus Reviews:

KIRKUS REVIEW

In Burns’ (The Amazing Adventures of Working Girl, 2009) novel, a perpetual dieter decides, after her best friend dies, to follow through on “The Read more of this blog post »

Quotes by K.S.R. Burns  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“People would never say, “Wow, you’re so fat, how do even you fit into a chair!” But skinniness is okay to remark upon. Worse, they often add, “You’re so lucky to be thin,” as if thinness were an accident, as if thinness were a quality you either have or you don’t. But there’s nothing accidental about thinness. Nope. Not in twenty-first-century America.”
K.S.R. Burns, Rules for the Perpetual Diet

“My mother used to say you should eat like a king in the morning, a queen at noon, and a pauper at night”
K.S.R. Burns, Rules for the Perpetual Diet

“I would like to disagree. I would like to argue. But that’s the problem with the dead. You can’t fight with them, you can’t reason with them, you can’t prove them wrong or yourself right, beg them to choose you, to stay with you, to love you more than death. They are gone. They have left only a big black ugly gash where their beautiful vibrant selves used to be. They no longer give a shit.”
