About me

Industry Publishing
Occupation Writer
Location Austin, Texas
Introduction I currently write books and manage a household that includes two school-aged children. (Okay, perhaps manage isn't the right word. But we're all clean and alive, so that counts for something.) When I'm not slaving away over the laptop, I'm chasing or chauffeuring children, experimenting with recipes my kids won't touch... or reading books about renovating farmhouses in distant countries. I also spend an inordinate amount of time on Facebook (facebook.com/karenmacinerney) and Twitter (@KarenMacInerney); I love connecting with readers in both places!
Interests Reading, gardening, cooking, karate, lying around with a bag of Dove chocolates reading murder mysteries
Favorite Movies Movies? What are movies? (I have two kids.)
Favorite Music XTC, Sting, Death Cab for Cutie, The Smiths, a random assortment of 80s music (I'm musically stuck in that decade)
Favorite Books Anything by Diane Mott Davidson or Janet Evanovich, I Don't Know How She Does It by Alison Pearson, The Lord of the Rings, James Herriot's series, P.G. Wodehouse's Jeeves books, Bill Bryson's Neither Here nor There, Outlander (Diana Gabaldon)

Which is easier to make a model airplane out of and why: a banana peel or a wet sock?

I think I'll leave this experiment to someone else.
