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 six rescued cats—Zoie Joy, Miss Paddington and siblings Freya and Zander…as well as siblings Bonnie and Clyde who are inside/outside felines who have an apartment in our basement.
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.
