What have I been while on my way to becoming a writer?
While working as a secretary, massage therapist, waitress, graphic designer, event planner, publisher and bringing three children up by myself I was always a writer and artist. That is what I am.
The story idea for Two Raven Ranch came to me about 20 years ago and the concept has changed over the years as I have. While there may be people with the paranormal abilities Jasmine develops in the book, for me the real story is about a broken young woman who learns to trust herself.
Maybe there are writers out there whose words come together painlessly. I faced many obstacles finishing my first novel, most based in self-doubt.
I know what it's like to be broken. I know what it's like to go to the edge and come back with yourself. That is what I write about.
There are six books planned for the Jasmine Black series. Number two, Silent Scream, is due September of 2012. Each month there will be a new short story based on characters in the series available at my website http://karen-lynn.net. The stories will be free for 60 days.
