Bonjour! Welcome to my home on the web.

I’m Karen Burns and the author of two novels, The Paris Effect and Paris Ever After. If you’re sensing a francophile theme here, you’re right!

The Paris Effect is about what happens when you run away to Paris without telling anyone. Paris Ever After (coming May 2018) is about what happens next.

In addition, years ago I wrote a non-fiction memoir/career advice book entitled The Amazing Adventures of Working Girl: Real-Life Career Advice You Can Actually Use. In fact, I still dispense bits of job and workplace advice every week in a column for The Seattle Times.

I love to hear from readers, so if you’d to like drop me a line just use the little contact form. Your message will come straight to me.

From time to time I run contests and offer giveaways. All this you learn about by going to news.
