Karen Dodd is a first-time novelist, who has recently broken into the literary scene with her highly acclaimed romantic suspense. She has published hundreds of articles, and teaches new and emerging fiction authors how to build their author platform while writing their books. She calls it “building the plane while flying it.” Karen will be reading from her new novel, Deadly Switch: A Stone Suspense.
