I'm an award-winning author honored with the Children's Literary Classics Silver Award, as well as a children's ghostwriter. I'm also a fiction staff writer for an online learning center, and founder and editor-in-chief of Writers on the Move, an author and writer blog featuring experienced writers and book marketers.

I love bringing my clients dreams of becoming a children's author to life. To do this, I work closely with my clients to ensure their expectations are met and they're happy with the results. I know the tips and tricks to writing for children and write as such whether a client is self-publishing or traditionally publishing. It's essential to create a professional and quality book whichever publishing path you take.

Here are four of many testimonials from happy clients:

Awesome! I love it. Thanks a million for helping my vision come to life. You’re wonderful to work with and I plan to write more with you in the near future.

Karen, YOU NAILED IT! I have tears of joy in my eyes right now. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

IT’S PERFECT!!!! Thank you so much Karen. You are really great at what you do. We talked over the phone once and I gave you a few notes, and you turned it into a masterpiece. I found you while doing a search on Google and saw nothing but great reviews. Now, I can see why.
Candis Butler

I am laughing. This is a great story and it sounds like my boys. I don’t understand how you can take words and make it work. You are a true writer. Thank you.

Work experience


April, 2008 – Present (over 10 years)

I'm a children's ghostwriter and freelance writer with satisfied clients from all over the world. I specialize in children's picture books, chapter books, and middle-grade books. From client testimonials and repeat clients, I can attest that I fulfill my clients' desire to have a publishable children's book that they can be proud of.

I work closely with my clients to make sure I keep on track with the vision they have for their books. And, I write in line with the industry, so whether my clients self-publish or traditionally publish their finished manuscript is good to go. I also guide my clients onto the next steps after having a book ghostwritten.

Clients may come to me with a simple idea or a few notes. They may have an outline or even a rough draft. I use whatever I'm provided with to create an engaging and publishable book.

If you have a desire to get your children's book idea or outline off the ground and soaring, contact me today. I'm professional, reliable, and affordable.

Along with being a staff fiction writer for an online learning center, I'm also the founder and editor-in-chief of a writing and book marketing blog, Writers on the Move, featuring experienced writers and marketers.

For my own books in the works, I have three picture books in contract with a publishing company and I'm working on a 10 book series.
