Welcome to my website!
I'm Karen-Anne...mom, wife, reader, author, and lover of music, wine, chocolate, straws, and daisies (they all make me so happy!).
Karen-Anne Stewart has always adored reading and has now fallen in love with writing. Her written works are The Rain Trilogy: Saving Rain, Healing Rain, and After the Rain, and Ash to Steele. Her debut novel, Saving Rain: The First Novel in The Rain Trilogy, was a nominee for the Book Junkie’s Choice Awards, and Saving Rain and After the Rain were nominees for the 2014 RONE Awards.
When Karen-Anne isn’t writing, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, hiking, and visiting new places. She fuels her addiction of creating new stories by her only other addiction, caffeine, and listening to a myriad of musical genres. Tucked away near the Blue Ridge Mountains, Karen-Anne lives with her husband, daughter, three dogs, and their cat. She plans on writing romance as long as her fingers maintain dexterity.
Me in a nutshell:
I'm a bit shy in person and can blush redder than a cherry on your hot fudge sundae in a split second...yep, it's a true talent of mine ;). When I write, all shyness morphs into sweet liberation. I'm a simple chick (just don't ask my husband if he agrees) and I enjoy entertaining myself with the musings in my head - hence my novels. I hope you fall in love!
As many of you already know, I'm an advocate for the fight against human trafficking. I researched sex-trafficking for my debut novel, Saving Rain, and for the remainder of the Rain Trilogy, and once Kas and Raina's story was complete, I couldn't turn my back on all that I learned. Since then, I have taken some online training offered by the Polaris Project and am thrilled to have recently become a volunteer for Operation Freedom Awareness, based in Greenville, S.C.
