Biography Karen Rose Smith is writing mysteries as well as romances now! Her plots, whether in mystery or romance, are all about relationships. She began writing in her early teens when she listened to music and created stories to accompany the songs. After expressing feelings in poetry, earning a degree in English and French, completing short stories that became too long to find a market, she turned to her fascination with relationships to writing romances and now mysteries. This award-winning best-selling author (USA Today List, Borders Bestseller List, Amazon Romance Bestseller lists, Barnes and Noble Bestseller list) will see her 111th novel released in 2025. She has published with Silhouette, Harlequin, Kensington and Meteor/Kismet. Her awards include two Golden Leaf awards in short contemporary romance, the Golden Quill in traditional romance, two awards for Best Special Editions and Romance Review's Today's Best series romance award. Jane Bowers of Romance Reviews Today states: "Karen Rose Smith's storyworlds are complete and realistic and lovely places to visit and revisit. She excels at stories that feature couples brought together by infants and children, and she handles her plots and characters with sublime sensitivity." Karen is well-known for writing emotion-packed novels. An only child, she spent a lot of time in her imagination and with books--Nancy Drew, Zane Gray, The Black Stallion and Anne of Green Gables. She dreamt of brothers and sisters and a big family like her mother and father came from--seven children in her mom's family and ten in her dad's. On weekends she was often surrounded by aunts, uncles and cousins. This is the root of her plot lines that include small communities and family relationships as integral to everyday living. She believes universal emotions unite us all and that is the reason she employs them to propel her plots. It is no secret that Karen married her college sweetheart and they have been married for 53 years. She believes in the power of commitment and the hope that goes along with the promise of everlasting love. Along with enjoying time with her husband, Karen enjoys cooking, watercolor painting, gardening, shopping, listening to music and keeping her five rescued cats company or vice versa. She has been busy working on book 3 in her new TOMES & TEA cozy mystery series for Kensington Books. Her new sleuth Jazzi Swanson was a teenager in her Daisy's Tea Garden cozy series. She's now 25 and living in the resort town of Belltower Landing, finding mysteries of her own to solve. In addition, Karen has written the Caprice De Luca home staging mystery series. She welcomes interaction with her readers on social media were she chats about plot lines, titles, emotions, heroes, heroines, music, books, gardening, cooking, or anything else readers deem noteworthy!
