No math whiz, Karin spent a long time studying the milestones of mathematics to create a realistic passion for Holly Markham in Substitute for Love. Her favorite fascinating fact was how measuring sound waves electronically replaced the whack of an engineer’s hammer against a train wheel to test for metal fatigue. File that under “Cool stuff writers hope some day will help them win Jeopardy!”

The inspiration for the character of Reyna Putnam in Substitute for Love came when Karin watched then candidate Cheney dance around the issues of LGBT rights as if his own daughter’s life wouldn’t have been improved had he cared enough to spend any of his political capital on her.

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.
