Featured Interview With Author Karen M. Bobos
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
I was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois. My family recently moved from downtown Chicago to Indianapolis, IN this past July. We live on a peaceful lake, which is my new peaceful scene to enjoy while I write my books. We have an almost 10-year-old Bernese Mountain dog, Luke. He is a main character in my Adventures in Harmony series. We recently welcomed a new puppy into our family, also a Bernese Mountain Dog, named Leia. She was born on Halloween in 2022.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I started writing poetry in 3rd grade. I decided to write a poetry book and my teacher found it. She grabbed the book and started reading it and then left the classroom. I thought I was in trouble. However, she was calling the local newspaper to tell them about my talent. They put an article in the newspaper that week. Ever since then, the teachers at my elementary school would have me write stories and read them to my class. Thank heaven for encouraging teachers.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
I fanaticize about the day when I can sit down and read a book. I have three small daughters and own three companies. In my spare time, I eat and sleep. LOL
The adult last book that I read was in 2012, when I was pregnant with my first born, and it was about pregnancy. I read tons of children's books now. We love The Itty Bitty Princess Kitty series by Melody Mews and the Princess in Black series by Shannon Hale. I really like reading Bob Staake and Sandra Boynton books to my five-year-old.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
All of my books' characters are based off of real people in my daughters' lives. Love is in the Air, I wrote to read to my daughters Valentine's Day 2021. We completed the illustration and edits in 2022. It's dedicated to our former nanny, who is still a very big part of our life. She is such an amazing person and always made my life easier. My daughters love her. She always had crafts and goodies for them. They would beg my husband and I to go on date nights. In the book, they are creating a perfume that they name LOVE. It accidentally gets touched by magic and takes over the land and causes everyone to be under a spell.
