Karen Thomas ~ Author
I started writing the fantasy genre because it's my favorite genre to read. From fairy Barbie to Game of Thrones and Anime, I love it all.
My favorite fantasy authors are Brandon Sanderson and Michael J Sullivan.
Brandon Sanderson's books were my introduction to the genre and I now look forward to everything he writes.
Michael Sullivan's writing I love because according to his own words, he writes what he would like to read, which most importantly for me, always includes some well done, realistic, light comic relief among the characters.
My romance stories are light, fun, and sexy. They feature strong women, as well as men who are NOT the typical a-holes as in most of the stereotypical billionaire books.
Why can't a man be rich and a good person? Flawed, yes, (or else he would be boring), but good at heart.
Why can't the girl next door have a mind of her own?
I enjoy writing about those moments which can be both intimate and funny. Most importantly, my stories MUST end in a HEA - Happily Ever After.
AFTER HER CAREER in the hotel and resort industry, Karen worked aboard Royal Caribbean’s Majesty of The Seas cruise ship. In 1997 she migrated to the United States from the land of steel pan and calypso: the Caribbean islands of Trinidad and Tobago.
Karen graduated from New York City’s Swedish Institute College of Health Sciences with a degree in Occupational Studies Massage Therapy, and since then, she has authored two non-fiction books on ‘Healthy Lifestyles.’
As a single parent, this island girl has raised two children and now lives in sunny Sarasota Florida where she appreciates the freedom of owning a private practice, delights in walking on the beach whenever she chooses, and—like a mama bear with cubs—she is fiercely protective of her hermit-like tendencies when she writes.
