Best-selling author Karen Young has written twenty-five novels and several novellas. Her many awards include the RITA, Career Achievement and Reviewer's Choice from ROMANTIC TIMES. She is known for her sensitive portrayals of social problems affecting the lives of contemporary women and has been called by a reviewer "a spellbinding storyteller who explores complex emotions with great skill." In her books, she has dealt with teen pregnancy, infidelity, alcoholism, domestic abuse and child pornography, but always leaving the reader feeling hopeful, uplifted and satisfied. "My novels deal with the concept of the evolved woman--one who's able to look her personal demons in the eye and solve her problems...regardless. And, of course, she always winds up enjoying a satisfying, loving relationship.
