Our Story

We are Karen’s five siblings – four sisters, one brother – who have come together to ensure that Karen’s dream of publishing her novel is realized.


In November of 2021, Karen called us, ecstatic that her novel was going to be published by Bold Story Press. Shortly after that, her health took a sudden turn for the worse, and she was unable to complete the final edits. She told us that her biggest regret was that she would die without seeing her book published—so we promised her that we would do everything possible to make her dream come true.


The amazing Bold Story Press team shepherded us through the publishing process and brought us to this point. It has been a labor of love for us.  We are so proud of Karen for what she accomplished, and so honored to have helped make her lifelong dream a reality.
