Welcome! I’m Karen Rose Smith.
I write romance, mystery, and women’s fiction. My 97th novel will be released in 2017.
Besides writing, my passion is caring for my four rescued cats—Zoie Joy, Halo, her daughter Paddy, senior London…and 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.
