Her new novel is Broken Bonds, book #3 in The Cold Creek Trilogy.
Last month I asked the author about what she was reading. Harper's reply:
"What is Karen Harper reading?" Research for a new trilogy with a forensic psychologist heroine, someone who interviews people who knew the deceased, in this case to learn if the death was murder or suicide. However, the heroine also has narcolepsy--a disease about which I knew little. It is terrifying and challenging--just what I needed for my main character.Visit Karen Harper's website and Facebook page.
So I'm reading, among other research, a fascinating book about a female law student who got hit with narcolepsy and how she handled it. It will really help me get inside my protagonist's head. The book is Wide Awake and Dreaming: A Memoir of Narcolepsy by Julie Flygare. It's also a can-do book in the line of the current Reese Witherspoon movie Wild and other overcoming, inspirational books about conquering fears or a disease.
