Hello Ginny! We meet again. :)

I don't plot out my books ahead of time, so very often the storyline takes a turn that surprises me. This was the case with Russ and Nadia. I really thought he'd end up with Mallory, but I like the way it turned out instead.(less)
Karen McQuestion Hi Kellie, I just sent you a direct message. Thanks for your interest in the book!

New Book!

I have a new release coming out on September 17th, a book titled Missing Her More.

This is the novel I’m calling my “surprise book,” because it seeming came out of nowhere after readers of Good Man, Dalton contacted me saying they wanted to know what happened after that story ended. I wasn’t planning on writing a sequel and this isn’t a sequel exactly, since it involves secondary characters and ca... Read more of this blog post »

I agree with the other reviewers in that this was an exceptional book. However, it did take me a good 30-40 pages before I got into the story. I'm willing to concede, thought, that this may have just been me and the mood I was in at the time.

Karen McQuestion Hi Graeme, I'm glad that blog post resonated with you. It turns out that a lot of writers would prefer not to be boxed in. :) Freedom is a fine thing!
