about

Karen Dean Benson decided to try her hand at writing historical fiction somewhere between diapering her first child and kissing the sixth off to college. Her formative years were spent in the Detroit, Michigan parochial system. After graduating from Northwood University, she spent the next years in the woodlands of northern Michigan enjoying the beauty of the AuSable river as her family grew. She loves research, history, and tales of the convoluted lives we all lead, then weaves them against the backdrop of a by-gone era.

Her novels involve young women blundering through the social constraints of the 18th and 19th centuries. Jane Austin’s Pride and Prejudice, and Kathleen Woodiwiss’ The Flame and The Flower, are two standouts among many wonderful stories of romantic history that influenced her.

Karen, and husband Charlie, divide their time between golf courses in Michigan and Florida.
