'As writers we are wordsmiths, creating a world, characters and story through language, and punctuation is one of the tools of language. To ignore it, except for rare exceptions, to me is like Monet painting with the wrong colours, or Michelangelo attempting to sculpt using a hammer when a chisel is needed. 

Words are what we do, language is our medium and punctuation our tool. When I write, I want to take my readers to my world, to join my characters on their journey, to experience their challenges, traumas, desires. I want them to take this journey with me, without noticing the individual words, full stops or commas. I want them to lose themselves in the story, not in the mechanics of it, and this will only happen if all the elements are right.'

'Following a glowing recommendation from a fellow writing buddy, I've found working with Karen and LionheART to be a wonderful experience. The sting and fear, in what can be a stressful and nerve-wracking experience process, was non existent. Karen stuck with me every step of the way and went ABCD [above and beyond the call of duty] to make sure my manuscript was the best it could be. I will certainly be back with the rest of my series!'
