Karen Kingsbury

USA today and New York Times best selling author, Karen Kingsbury, is America's number one inspirational novelist. Karen has sold more than 20 million copies of her award-winning books.  She has written more than 50 novels, 10 of which have hit #1 on national lists. Dubbed by Time Magazine as the queen of Christian fiction, her fiction has made her one of the countries favorite storytellers. Several of her novels are under production for upcoming major motion picture releases.

Karen says, "When I sit down at my laptop to write a novel, I pray for you, and I pray God will use the words He gives me to touch your hearts. Because of those special moments in prayer, I think of you as friends. If you lived next door, we'd get together and have a cup of coffee or a cup of tea, my favorite. Since we probably don't live on the same street or even in the same state, our friendship has to happen here."

Karen is married to her husband, Don, and is a mother of six kids, three of whom they adopted from Haiti.
