Karissa lives in North Carolina with her kid, her husband, the occasional in-law, and a very hairy husky. Some of her favorite things are coffee, dark chocolate, and super heroes. She can quote Princess Bride verbatim. She loves to read and has a sweet tooth for fantasy, sci-fi, and anything in between.
On the weekends, you'll find her at flea-markets looking for rusty things to reuse and repurpose. In the summer she's camping and kayaking at the lake, and in the winter, she's hopefully somewhere on a snowy ski slope.
