My name is Karen but I answer to Kare more often than not. I’m a writer/reader and I’ve been in the fandom since 2010. I live in Southern California and I’m mother to a wonderful five-year-old daughter. I’m a hairstylist by trade and I’m an avid scrapbooker. If it’s not in the scrapbook, it didn’t happen. ;)
When I’m not writing, reading or scrapping, I like music and movies and I try to get to as many SoCal TFMU’s as possible. I’ve met some pretty fantastic women in this fandom and I’m so happy to call quite a few of them my friends. I love getting together with them to chat about fic.
Wide Awake was the first fanfic I read. I was blogging on an Eclipse movie website and someone mentioned WA and I had no idea what it was. People kept mentioning sparkly white unicorns, mythical creatures and cookies. I wanted to know what I was missing out on. So I finally Googled it and a few hundred stories later – here I am.
As I mentioned, I’m a writer and a reader. I’m author of When You Least Expect It and co-author of What Fills the Eye Fills the Heart, Taking a Shot, In High Gear and a ton of others. I’m pretty particular about what I read – I’m an Edward/Bella kinda girl and I love a good HEA. I do like a little angst every now and then just to shake things up, but I do like a fluffy, sweet Edward.
I went to Las Vegas for last year’s meet-up and it was so much fun! Not only did I get to fangirl over some of my favorite writers but I got to meet some of my wonderful readers too and that’s what I’m looking forward to doing again in Chicago. (Be warned there may be some squeeing involved.) I’ve only ever been to the airports in Chicago, so it will be interesting to see a little bit of the city. I know the Cubs aren’t playing at home the weekend we’re there, but I’d REALLY like to go see Wrigley Field and I NEED to find a pub and have a Guinness with my co-writer, twimom817! =D
June can’t get here soon enough, I’m looking forward to seeing y’all!
