Karen Pokras is a writer, daisy lover, and mom to three brilliant children who provide an endless stream of great book material. While always an avid reader, Karen found her passion for writing later in life and runs all of her stories past the critical furry ears of her two feline editorial assistants before anyone else. A numbers geek at heart, she enjoys a good spreadsheet almost as much as she loves story telling. You can find her award-winning Nate Rocks and Millicent Marie series under her pen name, Karen Pokras Toz. A native of Connecticut, Karen now lives with her family outside of Philadelphia.
