K.B. Bogen is a self-confessed knit-/yarn-aholic. She spends as much time as possible either knitting something, inventorying her yarn stash, or fondling yarn at any shop within driving range. Interesting? Depends on your point of view. She likes to cook and she enjoys reading forensic anthropology books. Occasionally at the same time. A native Texan, Karen holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science and Engineering from UT Arlington, as well as several health and nutrition certifications. Her wildly varied job history includes balloon sculptor, caterer, personal trainer, yoga/Pilates/senior aerobics instructor, technical document writer, configuration management engineer, and copy editor. But, sooner or later, she always returns to her first love: writing. Her favorite style is humor, preferring to make people laugh rather than cry. But she is not above causing the occasional shiver in her audience, when the mood strikes. Her credits include the anthology Dracula in London and novel Go Quest, Young Man (currently available as ebook). The second Quest book, Quest and Found, is scheduled for release in spring of 2016, along with trade paperbacks of both Quest books.
The return of a perennial favorite! Susan Brady will host a three hour session on costuming basics, with folks building their own costumes and taking their creations with them to wear at the convention. And concurrent with this event, we will also have Sit 'n' Stitch for the knitters and crocheters!
Autograph sessions will be located in the Dealer's Room. Authors will cycle through hourly, except for the author's that have their own tables who will be available when they are not scheduled in the program. Limit 5 books (if you bring more, get 5 signed and go to the back of the line.)
