Karin Tabke bio here
Karin Tabke aka Karin Harlow is a multi-published, national bestselling and award-winning author.
“Tabke masterfully creates sexual tension…” this Romantic Times quote has become synonymous with Karin’s stories.
Karin’s break into publishing came with the surge of erotic romance in 2005. Her novella, STAKEOUT, was part of THE HARD STUFF anthology, which launched Aphrodisia, Kensington Publishing’s erotic romance imprint. Since her debut release, Karin has sold more than a dozen stories to US publishers, including Kensington, Simon and Schuster, and Penguin Putnam. Her books are also in print in Japan, Thailand, Germany, France, Spain and the UK territories.
In 2008, Karin’s erotic romance, JADED (Simon and Schuster) won the Romantic Times Reviewers’ Choice Award for Best Erotic Romantic Suspense. In 2011, her erotic lycan romance, BLOOD LAW (Berkely, Heat), the first book in her Blood Moon Rising series, won the Romantic Times Reviewers’ Choice award for Best Erotic Fiction. The second book in the trilogy, BLOODRIGHT, was recently nominated for the Romantic Times 2012 Reviewers’ Choice Award for Best Erotic Paranormal Romance; the winners will be announced next year. Her other awards include a CAPA and the Holt Medallion, as well as finals in the Prism and several others. Her debut single title, GOOD GIRL GONE BAD (Simon and Schuster) was excerpted in the October 2006 issue of Cosmopolitan magazine.
Finally, Karin was extremely honored to receive the Romance Writers of America (RWA) Pro Mentor of The Year award in 2008. She has served as president for her local RWA San Francisco chapter and now sits on the RWA National Board of Directors as a Director at Large.
Karin has been married to her own hot cop for nearly thirty years and writes what she knows. She has also started and sold several profitable businesses over the years, but her true love is writing passionate love stories. When she isn’t writing she loves to travel and does so extensively, meeting readers, attending board meetings and sharing her knowledge in the form of workshops at writer conventions and conferences.
