Karen Healey writes books about tough girls with brains and interesting boys with secrets. She likes nail art, superheroes, and musical soundtracks. She technically lives in New Zealand, but really lives on the Internet.

Solitude

When I was a kid, my mother used to say, “Karen, you are so anti-social!”

Not like a description. Like a flaw.

Actually, I can be pretty social. I like people. I like listening to them and talking to them. I like hanging out with people and Doing a Thing Together, or Doing A Thing Separately. I’m introverted in that spending a lot of time with a lot of people can be exhausting, but it’s still fun.

When We Wake by Karen Healey
" My mother’s last words to me were, “Now you can go and save the world.” I died before I could. Some legacy I left you, huh? But I give you this legacy, too: You can make a difference. You can help.

That was some cliffhanger. Wow. I hate you. " Read more of this review »

Laura Martinelli is 59% done with While We Run: DON'T YOU DARE, HEALEY. I've already had my heart broken over fictional characters once this week, you're not going to do it to me again!

" Oh, don't feel bad! It wasn't an insult; it was a fair review. "

“Stories change us; they change the world. People are stories of themselves.”
Karen Healey, Guardian of the Dead

“No matter how much money he'd been offered or how many glittering stars had requested duets, he hadn't sung for them.
But he'd sung for me.”
Karen Healey, When We Wake

“You knew what I was," he said, taking his hair back from his face, eyes wild with the will to make me believe. "You knew that my face is a lie, just pretending to be human. And you still wanted me, you could touch me, you could see what I am, the only one who knew and wanted me all the same, and you said I wasn't a --" his chest hitched. "Not a monster. I was going to tell you, and then I thought, well, I'm probably going to die in the underworld, so why can't I have this until then? I'm the stupid one; not you. I'm so sorry.”
Karen Healey, Guardian of the Dead
