Like her characters, Karen Avivi enjoys an active, outdoor lifestyle. Since her discus and shot put throwing days in high school, she’s always been intrigued by fringe sports including surfing, skydiving, scuba diving, stunt classes, winter camping, orienteering, mountaineering, mountain biking, and archery. If she's not reading or writing at home in Montreal, Karen is probably planning a new adventure.

Thank you Day’s Lee for inviting me to participate. And congratulations Day’s for having your YA novel Guitar Hero named one of the Best Books for Kids and Teens for 2014 by The Canadian Children’s Book Centre!

Read Day’s Lee’s post on her writing process at Day’s Lee Exploring Writing, Self-publishing, the Chinese-Canadian Identity and Beyond

Now for My Writing Process:

What are you working on?

"Read other book reviews at Book Junkie Joint.

Engrossing, pulse-racing and features one hell of a daredevil for a heroine!

I'm all for strong female heroines in stories, and that was the main reason why I was so ecstatic when I was approved to read..." Read more of this review »
