Publisher info

Karolyn Cairns is a single mother of 15yr-old twins. She lives in sunny Florida. She spends a lot of time sitting in the sun thinking about that next great book. When she's not making up stories, she spends a lot of time working in the garden. She's back to work writing after some time off. Its been a great year.
She just wrapped up The Libertine's Wife, a historical romance. I would warn you right away that the hero in this book lives his life by a philosophy and set of rules most women would find disagreeable. We make NO apologies for Garret. He won't apologize, so why should we? A new historical romance titled A Viking's Love, is also available now. She is currently working on books three to 'The Wicked Series' and 'The Lost Tribe Series'. 'A Wicked Arrangement' is in the works, and 'Fangs'.
Karolyn enjoys reviews and comments from readers. She thanks you for all your encouragement.
Two titles will be coming soon to Smashwords, previously released on Amazon KDP select. A Witch's Tale and Love.com will be coming soon.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I started writing when I was about ten years-old. I was always scratching away in notebooks, hiding them under the couch from my family. I was so embarrassed of it I didn't want anyone to know.
What's the story behind your latest book?
My new vampire romance novel was inspired by the basic premise of 'Be careful what you wish for'. I think we all wish we could change our lives, be something more than we are. My heroine in The Wanting personifies all of us, wishing we could break out of our own mediocrity. It also sends a message that having a different life creates different problems.
