Matt Mathieson


Karen Gaus grew up the fifth daughter in a family of six children. During her childhood, one of her favorite pastimes was to tell adventurous stories to her friends. One day the teacher arrived during an impromptu puppet show and loved it so much she invited her to entertain the whole class. It’s only logical she would grow up to write novels. Karen has won several first place and finalist awards including the 18th Annual Writer’s Digest International Self-Published Book Awards, Inspirational Writers Alive in Houston, Austin Manuscript Contest, and Barclay Literary Competition. She has been a school board member, an ACFW member, and president of her Toastmaster club. Karen lives in Texas with her husband of thirty-three years and is mother of two wonderful children, a twenty-four-year-old daughter and a twenty-year-old son.
