Directly from Karen Rose's website:

I was asked to pull together some fun facts for my publisher and thought you might like to see the results:
I was given my first horror story to read by my dad, who, impatient at my childish choices of Trixie Belden, Nancy Drew and repeated readings of LITTLE WOMEN, urged me to read "real literature." He handed me a book of short stories. I'm quite certain he never read them because the first story was “The Pit and the Pendulum” by Edgar Allen Poe and (a)I was only eight, (b) my dad was really a nice person. He didn't know I would literally lose sleep after I read it. It scared me to death.
I'm not generally superstitious, but I've never boarded an airplane without a romance novel since surviving a scary crash landing while reading Jude Deveraux . It kept me calm.
I've traveled the world, once filling a passport and a half in three years. My favorite foreign city is London, although Rome is right up there.
I once ate a live fish in Japan so as not to dishonor my hosts and was then called Karen-san. Sushi is now on my "ick" list.
I spent my seventeenth birthday in a Guatemalan prison as a guest and only stayed a few hours, but hearing those big doors bang shut is a sound I'll never forget.
I have two patents for making Metamucil taste better.
I'm far from fluent, but am capable in American Sign Language and often interpret for my deaf child.
