Karen S. Chow started writing novels as a sophomore at Arizona State University while she was studying Electrical Engineering, when she and her friend were guided by The Weekend Novelist. Since then, she has discovered a love for writing middle grade and young adult fiction.

She wrote her first middle grade novel during NaNoWriMo 2016. It is a heart story that combines her love for music and adds her experiences witnessing her father passing away from cancer.

Now, she is an engineer by day and novelist by night. She contributes regularly to the Middle Grade at Heart bookclub, a monthly newsletter that highlights middle grade books with a little magic and a lot of heart.

She lives in Gilbert, AZ, and is represented by Andrea Cascardi at Transatlantic Agency.
