Welcome! I am so glad you joined me today. My name is Karen Marcam, and I write historical fiction about everyday people like you and me, living in a different time, who overcome age-old problems.
One of my favorite quotes is attributed to Winston Churchill: “If you’re going through hell, keep going.” We all experience things which are stressful or painful. And almost always, if we keep plugging away, we end up in a better place than where we started. This may be why I write stories about interesting characters who are battling something difficult, but somehow still make everything come out all right in the end.
While I enjoy watching a character defeat his nemesis, I also favor stories which leave me in a good mood after the last page. So, I leaven the conflict in my stories with fun sidekicks, a dollop of humor, and a dash of romance.
I invite you to sit back, relax, and come on a journey with me. You might cheer, cross your fingers, even cry from time to time. But when you reach the end of the story, I promise to leave you smiling.
I invite you to sign up for my newsletter. It is a great way to hear the latest from my world, get a sneak peek at what I am writing, and have a few adventures with history.
As a bonus, anyone who signs up will receive a delicious old Southern recipe.
