Ground Control (Sley House, 2022)
"There's no going back."
Sarah's husband has accepted a position on the next shuttle to Mars, leaving her with the decision to pack up her life and their children to go with him—or lose him forever.
Ground Control is a speculative fiction novel that follows the journey of a trailing spouse's journey into space, exploring themes of self, adventure, discovery, and home.

AARON WHITMAN, President, ABLE SENSE
Karen is a thorough editor, taking her time to look at both the big picture and the minutiae of the story. She isn't afraid to ask questions about the story's direction, continuity, and characters, even as she works to improve grammar and word choice. The changes she's suggested have made sense for the story and for my characters.
