Karen Sandler published numerous romances for adults in the late '90s and early 2000s, then shifted to young adult with the science fiction Tankborn Trilogy, which includes TANKBORN, AWAKENING, and REBELLION by Lee and Low/Tu Books. She is also the author of the gritty Janelle Watkins Investigations mystery series, which includes CLEAN BURN and HANGTOWN.
In addition to writing novels, Karen loves riding dressage and is also an avid folk dancer. She lives in Northern California with her husband and dance partner, Gary, and two cats--pleasingly plump Tenka and formerly feral Zak.
