Karen Fox always had stories taking place in her head and started putting them on paper when she was 12. A fan of science fiction, her first tales incorporated distant worlds and a hint of romance. After discovering romance novels, she found what she wanted to write--stories of the love between a man and woman that survived no matter what happened to them.
Karen was born in Jackson, Michigan and graduated from Parkside High School. While in high school, she was editor of the school newspaper and won a local award for journalism sponsored by the local newspaper, The Jackson Citizen Patriot. She attended Jackson Community College for two years before marrying and following her Air Force husband around the world.
Karen discovered the Colorado Springs chapter of Romance Writers of America (Pikes Peak Romance Writers) in 1992 and soon after became a part of the Wyrd Sisters critique group. En route, she grew as a writer and learned the publishing business. In 1996, she sold her first book, a futuristic romance SWORD OF MACLEOD to Leisure Books and followed that soon after with her second, SOMEWHERE MY LOVE.
SOMEWHERE MY LOVE went on to become a finalist for RWA's prestigious Rita award as well as a finalist in several smaller contests.
Married for 24 years to a retired Air Force Master Sergeant, Karen is mother to three teen-agers and works as a technical assistant for The MITRE Corporation. She considers herself a world traveler having lived in Tacoma, WA; Charleston, SC; Mons, Belgium; Biloxi, MS; and settling finally in Fountain, CO.
Karenís third book, a contemporary fantasy for Jove's Magical Love line, PRINCE OF CHARMING was published in December 2000. In addition, she wrote a for Zebraís new Ballad line, designed for series of books, along with other members of her critique group, The Wyrd Sisters. THE HOPE CHEST SERIES: GRAND DESIGN appeared in August 2001 and a sequel book to PRINCE OF CHARMING, BUTTERCUP BABY was out from Berkley/Jove in October 2001. In addition, she recently sold two more faery contemporary romances to Berkley/Jove.
