Pssst! Want to read a good book?
I write romances with humor and heart, many of them set in my home state of Alaska. If you love stories with well-rounded characters who fall head-over-heels (willingly or not), check out my Phillips Point series. You'll find friends, family, witty banter, sexy times, and always a happy ever after.
Karen Kiely writes romance novels, works as a librarian, and lives in Alaska (but not in an igloo). She also has too many cats, though only 1.25 per person in her household, so she can't possibly be a Cat Lady. Oh, and she loves baseball (Chicago White Sox), chocolate (who doesn't?), taking creatively invigorating walks, and reading romance.
Though currently unpublished, Karen has six books planned for her Phillips Point series set on the Kenai Peninsula in southcentral Alaska. There are some ideas floating around for some standalone (or nascent series--who knows?) romances. One of those is set in Ireland because she desperately needs to visit again.
