Petticoats & Pistols - I am a regular contributer to this fun, western-themed blog geared toward readers who love western romance. The "fillies" at Wildflower Junction are made up of western romance authors from both the general and the Christian markets. You will find wonderful discussions about cowboys, historical tidbits from the west, even western movies and television. Whatever the topic, we always have a great time. Saddle up and ride on over for a visit.

Newsletter and Free Gift:
In an effort to respect your time and not clutter your inbox, I will only send out two newsletters a year. You will receive information about my newest releases, but also I hope to inspire you with a short spiritual thought and perhaps a fun historical tidbit or two. Click here to sign up for the newsletter.
Also, everyone who signs up for my newsletter gets a free gift!
As my way of saying thank you, I am offering a free download of a Bible study based on the life of Rahab. I enjoy digging into the stories of biblical women and learning how God used them, flaws and all, to accomplish his purposes. This Bible study is unique in that it combines biblical fiction with scriptural study to engage both the heart and mind. You can use this for personal study or in a group setting. Discussion questions are included.
Have Karen Speak to Your Group:
Would you be interested in having me speak to your church group, book club, or writers' gathering? Please contact me with the details, and I will let you know my schedule.
