Karen Kinna (1967-) was born in Vancouver, BC, Canada.

Now living on a secluded lake near Austin, Texas with three wiener dogs and one crazy corgi, Karen writes full-time in a constant flurry of dog hair and stray kibble.

She holds a Bachelor's Degree in English Literature from Simon Fraser University, with minors in Journalism and Shakespeare.


A proud member of RWA (Romance Writers of America), Karen is a past vice-president of SARA (San Antonio Romance Authors) where she is still very involved with conferences and contests.

For 14 years, Karen was a featured entertainment columnist twice a week for a large newspaper chain based in southern British Columbia.  (MetroValley News.)

She cut her teeth in the writing world by interviewing actors, authors, and musicians - including Diana Gabaldon, Robin Williams, and Alan Jackson.

Her ON STAGE theatre columns were syndicated and circulated to an audience of over 100,000 readers.

Karen has written plays for the stage, children's books, and sci-fi and parenting articles for the past two decades.

Her first love is Contemporary Romance -- the steamier the better!
