About The Author:
Karen E. Osborne is the author of the novels Tangled Lies,Getting It Right, and Reckonings (June 2022). As a kid in the Bronx, Karen kept friends enthralled with stories of adventures she pretended to have experienced. Marriage, children, and a wonderful career, first as an academic administrator and then co-owner of The Osborne Group consulting and training firm, sidelined her ambition to be a writer until one day Kara, the protagonist in her first novel, began speaking to Karen. That first novel, Getting It Right, was selected by Essence as “One of Summer’s Best Reads.” A native New Yorker, Karen now lives in Port Saint Lucie, FL with her husband Bob. They have two grown children and three grandsons. https://www.kareneosborne.com/
