Karen Kingsbury's Bio:
Karen Kingsbury began the Redemption series with co-author Gary Smalley as a result of her writing’s impact on him: “Karen Kingsbury is my very favorite fiction author. Nothing moves me like her imaginative and intriguing plots. I literally live with her characters, sharing the deep emotion. Her writings change me,” said Smalley.

There are more than 1.4 million copies of Karen Kingsbury’s titles in print, including her best-selling titles, Halfway to Forever, On Every Side, Moment of Weakness, and When Joy Came to Stay. She has been a finalist in the Romance Writers of America’s Rita competition for best inspirational fiction nationwide. One of her books was made into a CBS Movie of the Week. Her title A Time to Dance was selected as the first book in the Women of Faith fiction club.

In 2001, Karen and her husband adopted three first-grade boys from Haiti. The new additions have blended very well with their three biological children. Karen and her family live in Vancouver, Washington.
