Ms. Robiscoe is a delighted but distant member of Phi Theta Kappa & honors grad of SBCC. Currently residing in those first 2 initials, she’s better described by these: LQTM, as well as a product of white flour Cheerios & disinterested parenting.
A perennial daydreamer, Karen spends most days looking for her car keys, wondering why the Mayans were wrong, & writing tiny notes to herself on anything that will bear ink.
While the aspiring novelist has had poetry, short fictions & creative non-fiction published, Spirited Remix is her debut novel. Follow its trek to publication right here at: CHARRON’s CHATTER.
