Karin Kaufman grew up devouring murder mysteries, especially of the cozy kind. Give her a mystery, a comfy couch, her sweet dog at her side, and (preferably) a rainy day, and she’s in heaven. She’s the author of the Juniper Grove Cozy Mystery Series, the Smithwell Fairies Cozy Mystery Series, and the Anna Denning Mystery Series. The Witch Tree, the first book in her Anna Denning series, was a finalist for a Grace Award. Karin also writes children's books in the Geraldine Woolkins and Woolkins Bookshelf series.

I love hearing that you devoured the first ten. :-) Book 11 will be coming out in the late spring. I took a little hiatus from the Juniper Grove series to work on my Smithwell Fairies series and on another Geraldine Woolkins book. But I'm definitely getting back to Juniper Grove, and I plan to keep writing that series as long as people keep reading it!(less)

Quotes by Karin Kaufman  (?)

“Her gun was twenty seconds away, her friends three minutes, and the police five minutes. Her choice was obvious.”
Karin Kaufman, The Witch Tree

“I don't have any big adventures."
"But of course you have big adventures," Papa said. You have adventures of all sorts, all the time."
"Not like Radish in the Book of Tales," Geraldine said, scuffing a toe along the ground. "I could never be like Radish."
"No, you don't have adventures exactly like Radish," Papa said. "But that's because you're not Radish and you must have your own adventures. All creatures must."
"Happy ones?" Geraldine asked.
"In the end, yes. But they won't all seem that way at first. They'll have unexpected twists and turns. You must let them play out to the end, like a story in the Book of Tales. Follow God, speak to him and listen to him, and all tales will be beautiful in their time.”
Karin Kaufman, The Adventures of Geraldine Woolkins

“She’d passed sentence on God two years ago, and she fed her doubts of Him daily, taking care they didn’t shrivel and die.”
Karin Kaufman, The Witch Tree

“Turn to the light. Don't fear the shadow it creates.”
Ted Dekker

“…though I wouldn’t have admitted it, even to myself, I didn’t want God aboard. He was too heavy. I wanted Him approving from a considerable distance. I didn’t want to be thinking of Him. I wanted to be free—like Gypsy. I wanted life itself, the color and fire and loveliness of life. And Christ now and then, like a loved poem I could read when I wanted to. I didn’t want us to be swallowed up in God. I wanted holidays from the school of Christ.”
Sheldon Vanauken, A Severe Mercy: A Story of Faith, Tragedy and Triumph

“Atheism turns out to be too simple. If the whole universe has no meaning, we should never have found out that it has no meaning...”
C.S. Lewis

“Laugh as much as you choose, but you will not laugh me out of my opinion.”
Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

Oh my, I just found this, Parker. I need to scroll down the page more often, don't I? I'm not sure when book 2 is coming out. If I only had more time to write! But thank you for asking!
