Karen Hugg writes literary mysteries and thrillers inspired by plants. Her stories are set in worlds where plants, real or imagined, affect people in strange new ways. Her background is in horticulture and her passion is living green things. Her aim is to entertain and inspire readers, to get them thinking while their hearts are pounding.

She's a certified ornamental horticulturalist and Master Pruner. She's also a graduate of the Goddard MFA program. When not digging in the dirt she writes.

The Forgetting Flower takes readers to Paris. The literary mystery Song of the Tree Hollow brings the spooky woods of the Pacific Northwest to life.

I have too many ideas and not enough time to write them all. I do sometimes get stuck in my decision-making when I write, but I find if I walk away and allow myself to puzzle over the problem, I find the answer in a day or so.

One is that you can imagine another person's life in your mind. You can emotionally move a reader. You can travel to another culture and place. Another fun thing is you can engage in this organic, creative process that happens not only at the keyboard but in your head at eleven at night or while driving or doing dishes. Writing is play and that play fulfills me.(less)
