Award-winning author Karen Rose Smith was born in
Pennsylvania. Although she was an only child, she remembers the
bonds of an extended family. She and her parents lived with her
grandfather and aunt until she was five when her parents built a
house next door. Since her father came from a family of ten and her
mother, a family of seven, there were always aunts, uncles and
cousins visiting on weekends. Family is a strong theme in her books
and she suspects her childhood memories are the reason.
As a teenager, music became as important to Karen as
reading. The Beatles were her favorite group. But she and her
cousin took their first sojourn into writing by collaborating on a
script for the MONKEES television program. They sent that script to
every concert venue where the group appeared that summer!

husband-to-be. They both began married life as teachers, but when
