Karen White told CA: "Whenever anybody asks me why I decided to become a writer, I simply tell them that the career chose me. And then when they tell me they've always wanted to write a book, I tell them that, first, they need to read, read, read—especially in the genre in which they wish to write, and second, they need to sit down in a chair and just do it!"
