Karen Wojcik Berner writes contemporary literary fiction with a sprinkling of the classics. Her Bibliophiles novels explore the lives of fictional American suburban book club members. Unlike most series that follow one character through various adventures, the Bibliophiles is a little different. Each book club member gets the chance to "star" in his or her novel.
The first, "A Whisper to a Scream," centers on Sarah, a stay-at-home mother of two, and Annie, a PR executive with fertility issues, each of whom thinks the other's life is far superior to her own. Their story is followed up in Karen's holiday digital short, "A Bibliophile Christmas." "Until My Soul Gets It Right" chronicles Catherine Elbert's journey as she bounces from coast to coast in search of her true self.
Karen grew up on the outskirts of Chicago, where she spent most of her summers reading while sitting sideways in her rocking chair, warm breezes floating through her windows. After graduating from Dominican University with degrees in English with a writing concentration and communications, she worked as a magazine editor, public relations coordinator, and freelance writer. A two-time "Folio Magazine" Ozzie Award for Excellence in Magazine Editorial and Design winner, her articles have appeared in countless newspapers and magazines. She lives in the Chicago suburbs with her family.
