New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Karen Hawkins writes novels that have been praised as touching, witty, charming, and heartwarming. A native Southerner who grew up in the mountains of East Tennessee where storytelling is a way of life, Karen recently moved to frosty New England with her beloved husband and multiple foster dogs. The Dove Pond books are a nod to the thousands of books that opened doors to more adventures, places, and discoveries than she ever imagined possible. To find out more about Karen, follow her at:

Why I'm Writing Magic Realism

I hope you are all enjoying THE BOOK CHARMER and Dove Pond.

Several readers have asked why I'm now writing books in the magic realism genre. It's simple -- the news and our social media platforms are filled with so much negativity, far more than ever before. Magic is about control, whether it's the ability to make a potion that helps someone fall in love or being able to cast a spell that allows y Read more of this blog post »

Karen’s Recent Updates

Karen Hawkins answered Isabel.O's question:
This question contains spoilers… (view spoiler)
Karen Hawkins
All of those questions are answered in A CUP OF SILVER LININGS, the second book. I hope to have a release date for it soon.
Karen Hawkins answered Jennifer Keegin's question: Karen Hawkins
That's just a placeholder date. It should be released in 2021 sometime -- I'm hoping to get a specific date soon. It will be in the usual formats -- ebook, trade, hardback, and audible.
Karen Hawkins added a status update: I’ve been writing magic realism into my novels since my Talisman Ring series which came out about 15 years ago. THE BOOK CHARMER is my first contemporary women’s fiction/magic realism attempt and wow, did I enjoy creating Dove Pond. I enjoyed it so much that I went back to town, and am writing Ava Dove’s book right now, which will be called A CUP OF SILVER LININGS in honor of her specialty teas.
Karen Hawkins is accepting questions on their profile page.

“I’ve often thought it unfair that women are expected to stay at home when there’s a fight to be won. If a
woman has the strength to bear a child, she can swing a sword as well as any man.”
Karen Hawkins, How to Abduct a Highland Lord

“Love doesna always mean burning flashes o' passion. Sometimes, it's jus' the warmth o' yer hearts as they beat yer day together." ~Old Woman Nora to her three wee granddaughters on a cold winter's night.”
Karen Hawkins, Sleepless in Scotland

“As Jack began to climb the stairs, Fiona looked up at her new home. Five stories of stately mansion
rose above her head. Heavy molding around the large windows and doors bespoke a quality and
craftsmanship that was obvious even in the dim night. “Good God! It’s massive!”
Jack paused with his foot on the last step. “I do wish you’d keep those comments until we are in bed,
love. I would appreciate them all the more there.”
Karen Hawkins, How to Abduct a Highland Lord
