Karen Hawkins

About Karen

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Karen Hawkins writes novels that have been praised as touching, witty, charming, and heartwarming. A native Southerner who grew up in the mountains of East Tennessee where storytelling is a way of life, Karen recently moved to frosty New England with her beloved husband, aka Cap'n Hot Cop, and multiple foster dogs. Her highly acclaimed Dove Pond series is a nod to the thousands of books that opened doors to more adventures, places, and discoveries than she ever imagined possible.

Karen's very proud of both her writing career and the fact that both of her children are out of college and have become productive, non-violent members of society. Karen writes six to eight hours a day when not obsessively reading research books on Things She Will Never Write About, snacking, or closing her eyes while "plotting," which is author-speak for "napping." Her hobbies include sculpting, oil painting, playing badminton, and - ok, ok, she doesn't have any hobbies, but if she did, she's sure they'd be something refined and fascinating.
