About Me

karenbooth_authorphotoI’m Karen Booth, a midwestern girl transplanted in the South, raised on ’80s music, Judy Blume, and the films of John Hughes. An early preoccupation with Rock ‘n’ Roll led me to spend my twenties working my way from intern to executive in the music industry. Several of my books revolve around the world of backstage passes and band dynamics, but I don’t limit myself to rock stars. I write CEOs and billionaires and the occasional hot Italian artist. More than anything, I love to write about falling for the guy you never thought you’d get. I found my own real-life Jake Ryan. I’d like to think it can happen for anyone.

When I’m not creating hunky fictional men and the women who test them, I’m listening to everything from Otis Redding to Duran Duran to Superchunk with my kids, honing my Southern cooking skills (I make some mean collards), or sweet-talking my astoundingly supportive husband into whipping up a batch of cocktails.

What’s next? Secrets of a (Somewhat) Sunny Girl will be out October 16. The Eden Empire: A Christmas Temptation will be out November 1. The Eden Empire: A Cinderella Seduction will be out February 2019. Secrets of the A-List: Sins of the Father will be out May 2019. The Eden Empire: A Bet with Benefits will be out August 2019.
