Short biography
After earning her PhD in English literature at New York University, Karen served as an Associate Lecturer at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and as an assistant editor at the academic journal Victorian Literature and Culture. Her essays and chapters have appeared in numerous journals, and she has written introductions for Barnes and Noble’s Classics Series editions of books by Dickens and Trollope. Prior to receiving her Ph.D. in English, she worked as an Editorial Assistant for several publishing companies, as a Media Buyer for Christie’s auction house in New York, and as a bartender at the airport in Rochester. She is a member of Sisters in Crime (National and AZ chapters) and Mystery Writers of America. Her first book, A LADY IN THE SMOKE (Random House, 2015), was a USA Today bestseller, and her second, A DANGEROUS DUET (Harper Collins, 2018) won for best historical fiction at the New Mexico-Arizona book awards. Her third, A TRACE OF DECEIT (Harper Collins, 2019) takes place in the 1870s London art world. Karen currently resides in Scottsdale, Arizona with her husband, her two children, and her ridiculously cute beagle, Rosy.
