About Karen J Hasley

Karen J. Hasley grew up from working-class roots in the mid-section of America. Her graduate thesis on 17th-century female poets introduced her to the rich treasures waiting to be discovered about women's lives in the past and in 2006 Karen Hasley's first novel, Lily's Sister, hit the stands. The rest is - quite literally - history. Do you recognize these women from America's past? Jane Addams. Ida B. Wells-Barnett. Dr. Alice Hamilton. Dr. Kate Waller Barrett. Donaldina Cameron. Karen's unique storytelling voice intertwines the lives of these real-life women with fictional heroines so closely and so convincingly that you may need to check your history books to figure out which is which. Her research was reviewed as "flawless"(ABJ, 1/10/10) and one reviewer said that "Hasley's impeccable writing" offers a "satisfying read from beginning to end." The Laramie Series Lily's Sister Waiting for Hope Where Home Is Circled Heart Gold Mountain Smiling at Heaven (2014) The stand-alone novel The Dangerous Thaw of Etta Capstone was a quarter finalist for Amazon's 2013 Breakthrough Novel of the Year. A Publisher's Weekly review stated that the book "isn't written as [romance] genre readers might expect," but is "subtle" and "effective nonetheless." Karen added a trio of light-hearted Victorian romances to her available novels. "The Penwarrens" series made up of Claire, After All - Listening to Abby - Jubilee Rose is the author's affectionate, admiring homage to Georgette Heyer. "No one could ever match Heyer's sparkling dialogue and wit or the sheer pleasure of her plots and characters. I've read and reread her for 50 years," Karen says. "The Penwarrens is a small token of my appreciation for the pleasure Ms. Heyer's books continue to offer readers of all generations."
