Karen Jurgens, a Cincinnati native, has been a Texan transplant for thirty years and counting. As a lifelong writer, she has written stories since her elementary school days. As an adult, she wrote Christian fiction for her church’s newspaper as well as non-fiction that was published in a national magazine.
Since retiring from teaching in 2014, she has begun a new career as an author, blogger, and speaker within the context of Christian ministry. Her first contemporary romance novella, A Christmas Mosaic, was published in October 2015, and is part of a multi-author anthology, Warm Mulled Kisses. Her second novella, Desire’s Promise, was published in November, 2016.
Karen is the proud mother of two wonderful daughters—Meghan, a dietician, and Caitlin, a journalist. As an avid gourmet cook, she loves to go all out for holidays and family birthdays. She enjoys spin classes, reading the Classics, and playing online word games. Participating in several professional organizations, volunteering, Bible studies, and her invaluable critique group keep her actively engaged in her community.
