About Karen Rose Smith

Award-winning author Karen Rose Smith was born in Pennsylvania. Although she was an only child, she remembers the bonds of an extended family. She and her parents lived with her grandfather and aunt until she was five when her parents built a house next door. Since her father came from a family of ten and her mother, a family of seven, there were always aunts, uncles and cousins visiting on weekends. Family is a strong theme in her books and she suspects her childhood memories are the reason.
As a teenager, music became as important to Karen as reading. The Beatles were her favorite group. But she and her cousin took their first sojourn into writing by collaborating on a script for the MONKEES television program. They sent that script to every concert venue where the group appeared that summer!
In college, Karen began writing poetry and also met her husband to be. They both began married life as teachers, but when their son was born, Karen decided to try her hand at a home-decorating business. She returned to teaching for a while but changes in her life led her to writing romance fiction. Now she writes full time.
Her first romance was published in 1992; her 80th romance will be published in 2013. A winner of New Jersey's Golden Leaf Award in Short Contemporary Romance, Colorado Romance Writers Award Of Excellence for short contemporary, as well as the Phoenix Desert Rose Chapter's Golden Quill for Traditional Romance, she has also been honored with's award for Best Special Edition.

A very sweet romance.

Review by: The Loopy Librarian on June 10, 2011 :
Love in Bloom was a light, enjoyable read. I liked that the main characters had a heart for others and were involved in their community. Paige and Clay were good for each other, and together they served others selflessly. Not only did they experience healing and growth but they helped others do the same.

Review by: Emjay Birkhead on May 13, 2011 :
It is a touching story and the message is clear. Though it is a love story, you can learn something about relationships as well as being kind to others. I like it.
