Kara Lockharte is the pen name of a 2007 graduate of Clarion West. After almost a decade of reviewing mass market genre fiction for Publishers Weekly, Kara decided to write thought-provoking society changing science fiction. That didn’t do so well, so Kara tried writing hot sexy dragon shifter romances which did much better. As an indie author of paranormal and science fiction romance, Kara credits her newsletter with helping her to hit several bestselling lists on Amazon. In her spare time, Kara enjoys Asian dramas, gardening and hiding from her children. She is a former New Yorker who now lives in California.
