Scribe Sisters. Karlene and I met at the 2009 Hawaii Writer's Retreat. The friendship between she and I~along with the other two members of our critique group~developed instantly and we knew we had to keep in touch. We met up the following year at William Bernhardt's writer's workshop and our bond solidified into something we knew would last a lifetime. Since then the four of us have been e-mailing each other nearly everyday and have shared the journey from critiquing our novels, to our synopsis, to our query letters.
Karlene is a very special lady. She inspires me to see the bright side of nearly every situation and to find the good in the world around me. Though she is working on a thriller, Karlene writes across the genre board, and even writes some fantastic inspirational material. I've now convinced her that as a wonderful mother and grandmother she would make a fantastic young adult author. I can't wait to read what she comes up with! She also loves to write aviation training programs. Yep, aviation. Karlene is a pilot, which kind of makes her my hero. The amount of years she's been flying would blow you away. She has eight airlines under her belt and now flies for Delta.
If you need inspiration or are up for an adventure, you've got to follow this lady. Jump on board now because her writing career will soon be as successful as her career as a pilot!
