I enjoy giving presentations to groups such as historical societies, museums, libraries and more. I also love to sit down and talk to book clubs about my novels and their take on a particular book. That is one of my favorite things to do!!


Karen is available for book clubs, any service groups who use speakers, genealogy groups, etc. Contact us using the button below to set up an appearance.


The appearances in Lovell were definately a highlight for my career---what a wonderful weekend--couldn't believe the lines of people waiting to get my book.  Thank You!!
