Karlie Klemme spends her days supporting software systems with nervous coworkers—all fearing Karlie will kill them off in one of her stories. Decapitate a developer? Asphyxiate an analyst? Maybe maim a manager? When Karlie gazes off in the distance, everyone starts to sweat.
Desperate to use her powers for good, Karlie put pen to paper and wrote Tourist Trapped, a suspense novel that debuted in 2014. She set the story in Cancun, tapping into her experiences from numerous jaunts to the Yucatan.
When not torturing characters or frolicking in the tropics, Karlie enjoys kayaking, gardening, skiing, and joyrides in her roadster. She lives in Wisconsin with a Westie and a Scottie-mix who allow Karlie to cohabit with them…as long as the treats cupboard remains well stocked.
Chaos shatters Amanda Sloane’s controlled world when she trades Chicago courtrooms and designer suits for sweat-soaked ventures into the Yucatan to find her missing sister. She searches old haunts and uninhabited lands, and learns to trust no one. Racing against time, Amanda faces death threats, deceptions, and ghosts from her past. Will she escape paradise?
