Karen A. Fox told CA: "I've always had stories in my head. I thought everyone did until I grew older and realized this was a bit unusual. The only way to go on is to put those stories onto paper. I love writing. Making other people come to life and sharing their adventures is wonderful. I particularly like paranormal subjects, as I feel there is too much reality around us all the time, and romance is perfect. I like having the happy endings, as too many times it doesn't happen for us."
