Karen Hudgins loves good stories and writes what she likes to read-warm, entertaining books with happy endings. Enrolling in a university continuing education novel writing program about ten years ago started Karen's journey into learning how to create fiction. "But I can now see that I was preparing for this since I was little." She has studied art, business, and earned a degree in behavioral science. (Disciplines rooted in real life, but also how it could be.) The author is a mom, and she and her husband live in the Midwest. She enjoys travel, gardening and the family pets.
