Karen Cino has been writing since she was fourteen years old. She started her career by writing poetry, short stories and writing articles for her high school newspaper. After reading Jackie Collin's Lovers and Gamblers and Jacqueline Susann's, Valley of The Dolls, Karen found my niche. She wanted to write women's fiction and wrote her first book during the summer before she started college.
Her daily walks down at the boardwalk are what gets her muse going. It clears her mind and helps her find realistic plot ideas and characters boosting up her muse. Karen loves writing about local places that people can relate to. The late Paul Zindel's books took place in Staten Island and reading them, especially My Darling My Hamburger, still brings back many memories for her.
"Finding love and happiness is what keeps you alive inside, having it is what life's all about. It's strange, but some days love come easy, others you have to work hard at it. I waited a long time for love to come my way, and it finally did," Karen explained.
Karen loves the summer, loves the beach. Her books are written in Staten Island, and take place in various places across Staten Island. Karen invites you to come on down to the Boardwalk to find your own muse
The world is at our fingertips. Dream, imagine and love.
Karen is married and recently moved from Staten Island to Barnegat, New Jersey. Her husband is an actor, teacher and attorney. Currently, they are collaborating their talents working together on a special project. More information to follow...
