From the time she read fairytales as a child Karla was hooked on stories that ended in Happily Ever After. She was fourteen when she read her first Harlequin Romance and discovered there was a whole genre that celebrated the HEA.


Karla writes sexy historical romance with strong spirited heroines and flawed heroes who have hearts of gold.  


When she is not reading or writing, she is cheering on, applauding, or chauffeuring around her two talented kids.

Karla loves to drink wine with friends, movie nights with the family, and in the spring and summer you can find her gardening or just lying in her hammock.


She lives in Northern Virginia with her very own hero, her children, and two adorable pups.
