Karen Herkes has been creating imaginary worlds since childhood, but she has only recently set off on the adventure of seeking an audience for her fiction. Her experience is thus limited by her inexperience. So to speak. She has e-published two novels and three short works through Kindle Direct, with additional distribution through the Smashwords.com premium catalog. The novels are also available in paperback from major distributors, and they are also being carried in two library catalogs. She reviews books and writes about life, the universe and everything on her blog, “Life Is A Story.”
