Five Facts about Karen Cino.

5 Things you didn't know about me:

1. I'm a huge baseball and football fan. Last season I watched all 162 New York Mets baseball games plus post season and all 17 New York Giant football games along with post season. My favorite player is Pete Alonso (PolarBear) and I can't wait for opening day on March 30th!

2. My biggest vice besides buying books is make-up and shoes.

3. I love the summer and despise winter.

4. Secret Life of Friends is the joining of Circle of Friends and Second Chances as a relaunch from my back-list. The books are also still available separately with brand new covers. The reason for this is because I want the reader to be totally satisfied.

5. All my books take place on the east coast and there are plenty of scenes taking place on the beach.
