Karen Rose Smith
Welcome! I’m Karen Rose Smith.
I write romance, mystery, and women’s fiction. My 110th novel MURDER MARKS THE PAGE will be released in April 2024.
Besides writing, my passion is caring for my seven rescued cats—Zoie Joy, Halo, her daughter Paddy, and sibling kittens Freya and Zander…as well as siblings Bonnie & Clyde who are strays who come at least twice a day for wet food.
My hobbies are gardening, cooking, watercolor painting and photography.
An only child, I’ve always delved into books as an escape. But as part of a large Italian family, I had cousins and relatives around me often. Families are a strong theme in my novels, both mysteries and romances.
