Ep 48: Plotting and Planning for the author with author Karla Sorensen.

On this episode of Buzzing about Romance, we are talking with Author Karla Sorensen all about writing mutli sport romances, characters that have been “Disneyed” and the ups and downs of writing as a Planner.

Meet Karla Sorensen:
Karla Sorensen is an Amazon top 20 bestselling author who refuses to read or write anything without a happily ever after. When she’s not devouring historical romance or avoiding the laundry, you can find her watching football (British AND American), HGTV or listening to Enneagram podcasts so she can psychoanalyze everyone in her life, in no particular order of importance. With a degree in Advertising and Public Relations from Grand Valley State University, she made her living in senior healthcare prior to writing full-time. Karla lives in Michigan with her husband, two boys and a big, shaggy rescue dog named Bear.
