About Karen

I'm a script doctor and freelance editor for best-selling authors who have hit #1-9 in their Amazon categories. I'm also an award-winning ghostwriter, produced screenwriter, and a screenwriting columnist for BTS Book Reviews. I teach at conferences, retreats, and on cruise lines. http://karenalbrightlin.com

Unique traits: I write in virtually every genre, have 12 award-winning screenplays (shorts and feature length) available from Suspense Thrillers to Dark Comedy to Sci-fi. I also write novels and shorts and cookbooks. Thus my column at BTS Book Reviews is called Karen's Writing Detours: http://btsemag.com/editorials/category/columns/writing-detours/
