Karen Sandler published numerous romances for adults in the late '90s and early 2000s, then shifted to young adult science fiction with the publication of the Tankborn trilogy: TANKBORN, AWAKENING, and REBELLION by Lee and Low/Tu Books.
Determined to let no genre stone be left unturned, Karen began penning the Janelle Watkins mystery series, starting with CLEAN BURN and followed by HANGTOWN, both from Exhibit A Books.
In addition to writing novels, Karen loves riding dressage and is also an avid folk dancer. She lives in Northern California with her husband and dance partner, Gary, and two cats--pleasingly plump Tenka and formerly feral Zak. For more about Karen, visit http://www.karensandler.net.

Karen has a split personality on Twitter: @karensandlerYA for young adult and @karensandler for mystery and romance.
