Hi! I’m Kari. I am a mom of 3 children. I could take up the page talking about how wonderful and perfect they are, but I will spare you the details. As you can imagine, I don’t have a lot of free time. I’m too busy raising my children. This page is about my work in progress. I’m an honest person (probably to a fault at times, so I’ll be honest here. I have never wanted to be a writer in my life. I have never had many (any really) creative bones in my body, and expressing myself in the written word has never come easy to me. I began to write a story from a reoccurring dream that I had several years ago. I would have this (quite frankly) nightmare over and over and over. One day, I remembered what my dad had told me as a child. He said to write dreams down and you can learn a lot. So I did. I jotted down what I could remember. Apparently, that was not good enough, because my dreams became stronger. But I wrote them down every morning anyways. Anyways, to make a long story short, once I began to write in story format, that dream would be gone. Then, I would have another dream. I wrote that down, until one day I realized that I was writing a story. I didn’t realize it at the time, but Darkness Awakens had bloomed. I decided to let my mom read it. She instantly fell in love with it. At first, she thought I had sent her someone else’s story by mistake. I know, I though she was bias, but as I let a few more people read it they all had the same reaction. To my delight, they LOVED it!!!! I was able to see their expression and you can’t fake that deep of a reaction. Well some people can, but they can not. I hope everyone enjoys my book. Now that Darkness Awakens has been published. I am working on the second book in the series.
