Karen Kirst was born and raised in East Tennessee near the Great Smoky
Mountains. She attended the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, where she
received a B.A. in Speech Communication. A lifelong lover of books, it wasn't
until after college that she had the grand idea to write one herself. The
pursuit of her dream would take longer than she first anticipated...years, in
fact. In the fall of 2010, she got the happy news that Harlequin Love Inspired
Historicals wanted to publish her manuscript-a true blessing from God. Now she
divides her time between being a wife, homeschooling mom, and romance
writer. She and her husband, along with their three boys, recently said goodbye to military life
and are thrilled to be back home in Tennessee.
Her favorite pasttimes are reading, visiting tearooms, and watching
romantic comedies.
