About Me

Karen Painter

Freelance Writer and Historical Fiction Author

My love for writing began in the fifth grade when we would spend fifteen minutes each day creative writing. I didn’t have many friends and spent a lot of time with my grandmother. She gave me a package of brightly colored markers and a notebook. I created a world with my markers, each had a name, a story, and personal relationships. I soon had 32 new friends! My love for story grew as I devoured the “Anne of Green Gables” and “Emily of New Moon” series by L.M. Montgomery and J.R.R. Tolkien’s “Lord of the Rings.” The last few years I have been inspired by my great great grandparents and I am currently working on a series of books based on their lives in the American West and Chihuahua, Mexico. Their faith and dedication to each other and their religion are inspiring. I can wait to share their stories with you!
