Karyne wrote her first chapter book at nine years old, but over the years her writing muse was distracted by photography, nursing school, a husband, and kids. When she moved to Rwanda for 19 months, the lonely expat life gave her time to write the fantasy novel she’d always wanted to read. She’s been writing ever since. Currently she lives in Arizona with her husband and four kids. She’s temporarily retired from being a labor and delivery nurse, so most of her time is spent raising four human beings and writing science fiction and fantasy.
