The sassy VW Bug in Car Pool was real, though it didn’t have IBPROUD plates. Alas, it was not a car Karin ever had the pleasure of riding in.
For the record, Karin can’t paint or play an instrument (so writes about both), has trouble following a recipe (ergo the food porn), and has little aptitude for hard science (even though smart is the new sexy). She does have a marginal talent for double-entry bookkeeping. All of this explains why Car Pool and Above Temptation feature super sexy accountants who love music and food.
Only one real life experience has been a featured event in one of Karin’s books: the chili pepper oil scene in Car Pool. Karin was the one in the bath tub hoping for relief. The French edition of the novel even features red chili peppers on the cover.
Karin’s first few novels were typed on a Macintosh Plus and printed via dot matrix. Plus it had dueling double density disk drives. Good times.
