Karen Lingefelt

Karen Lingefelt probably dreamed of being a writer while still in the womb. As a preschooler she scribbled with crayons in picture books to put her own spin on the text. In school she sat at her desk defiantly writing stories when she should have been completing her remedial math assignments. Later she joined the Air Force and when she wasn't traveling overseas, she spent her off-duty hours banging out epic sagas on a portable typewriter. Even after leaving the service to become a stay-at-home mom, she eked out a few minutes to continue pursuing her lifelong dream.

Karen's persistence finally paid off when Dorchester Publishing offered her a contract after naming her a finalist in their 2002 New Historical Voice Contest for aspiring writers, co-sponsored by Romantic Times magazine. A military wife and mother of three, she lives in Florida. Readers can visit her online at
