With almost two million books in print in fifteen different languages, Karen White is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of 34 novels, including her most recent novel, "The Lost Summers of Newport," a collaboration with bestselling authors Beatriz Williams and Lauren Willlig.
Not entirely convinced she wanted to be a writer, Karen first pursued a career in business and graduated cum laude with a Bachelor's of Science in Management from Tulane University. Ten years later, in a weak moment, she wrote her first book. "In the Shadow of the Moon" was published in August, 2000. Her books—referred to as “grit lit” (Southern Women’s Fiction)—have since been nominated for numerous national contests including the SIBA (Southeastern Booksellers Alliance) Fiction Book of the Year.
When not writing, White spends her time reading, playing piano, and avoiding cooking. White and her husband have two grown children and a spoiled Havanese dog, Sophie, and divides her time between Atlanta and the northwest Florida coast.
