I'm the author of the Agatha-nominated Gray Whale Inn mystery series, Tales of an Urban Werewolf. the Margie Peterson mysteries and the Dewberry Farm mysteries (plus a new fantasy in the works). My reading is like my writing: eclectic!

I grew up in the Northeast, but I currently live in Austin with my husband, two kids, and a houserabbit named Bunny. Feel free to visit me online at www.karenmacinerney.com; I love connecting with readers.

Mother's Little Helper by Karen MacInerney
"Margie Peterson is a private eye with some of the same real-world problems most of us have. Don't read "Mother's Little Helper" if you want to read about a tough as nails spit-polished detective who always knows the answer. DO read it if you want..." Read more of this review »
Mother Knows Best by Karen MacInerney
"I read the first book in this series and loved the characters. Margie is trying to survive day-to-day with a husband who was in love with another man (now deceased) but trying not to be gay, a six year old daughter who thinks she is a dog and only..." Read more of this review »

Mother Knows Best by Karen MacInerney
"A fun read! Some relatively serious topics as Margie tries to deal with a husband who has recently come out of the closet and children who are showing the strain (or maybe just being kids) and keep stability in the family. At the same time she is..." Read more of this review »

As a child, I spent hours spellbound by the Little House series. What a joy, as an adult, to find myself spellbound by the secret history behind the books I loved growing up! A WILDER ROSE follows the story of Rose Wilder, who, as Susan deftly descri ...more

“I have a secret. A big, fat, hairy secret. And I’m not talking minor-league stuff, like I once let Joseph Applebaum feel me up behind the seventh-grade stairwell or I got a Brazilian wax after work last Friday or I’m hiding a neon blue vibrator called the Electric Slide in my night table. Which I’m not, by the way. In case you were wondering. ”

“I just smiled and wished hard for the waitress to come back from Cancun or Mazatlan or wherever she was so I could order my martini.”
