An avid reader, I believe we have much to learn about the world, and ourselves, through explorations of the written word. Books are the threads of timeless human connection, and I strive, at least in some small way, to touch others through my writing.

Okay, enough of the heavy stuff. Let's get a little personal. I have worn many hats through my thirty-some years of living (and yes, that's as specific on my age as I'll get!) from C.N.A, to Animal ER Nurse, then from Accountant to a Graphic Designer, and now I've got a nice little vocation going as a photographer ( see www.karenfowlerphotography.com) - but the one thing I've always been is a writer. Blogs, essays, articles, poems, short stories- you name it, and I've been compelled to write it

Shattered Promises by Jessica Sorensen My rating: 4 of 5 stars Interesting, original novel with enough mystery and tension to keep you flipping the pages well into the night. The characters were compelling and I’m very curious to see where the cards fall in the second book. Thumbs up! View all my reviews Tagged: book […] Read more of this blog post »

Great fantasy romance. I particularly like the legend and lore built into the novel, and the system of magic in the world is compelling and intriguing. As was the built-in love triangle. I really like the way Norse-like mythology was an integral part ...more

Fan-freaking-tabulous! I loved this book so much I wanna take it out for a drunken night on the town, then bring it home for hours of wicked debauchery.

“My life has been shaped by the decision two people made over 24 years ago. They decided to adopt a child. They got me, and I got a chance at the kind of life all children deserve.”
Karen Fowler, Reflections on Motherhood

“One couldn’t be selective when remembering the past. Ignore the turmoil, chaos and pain – and the truly great memories would not shine with such luster.”
Karen Fowler, Memories For Sale

“Coming home seemed to have started the healing process. No longer vivid and garish, the memories seemed to be covered in gossemer, fading behind a curtain of time and forgiveness.”
Karen Fowler, Memories For Sale

“My life has been shaped by the decision two people made over 24 years ago. They decided to adopt a child. They got me, and I got a chance at the kind of life all children deserve.”
Karen Fowler, Reflections on Motherhood

“The desire to procreate, in some, is so strong that it creates a sort of tunnel vision in the afflicted. One can’t see beyond trying to make a baby, and they never stop to think about what it will really be like once said baby has in fact, arrived.”
Karen Fowler, Reflections on Motherhood
