Hello and welcome!


I’m a prolific writer, compulsive baker and chocoholic with a penchant for books, movies and fictional British men. I write contemporary  straight (m/f) and LGBTQ (m/m) romance.


Please feel free to browse around the site. You’ll find info on my books and my upcoming releases, lots of recipes, some free reads, and general information about me. And you can also read the archives of some posts on ex-Bachelor contestants from several seasons.


If you have any questions or want to leave a comment, please do. I love hearing from readers. You can also follow me on Twitter @karenstivali or on Facebook www.facebook.com/karenstivali. And if you like photos, check out my Pinterest boards for sneak peeks at what inspires me in writing and in life.


My m/m NA series, MOMENTS IN TIME, is published with Dreamspinner Press. The first three novellas, MOMENT OF IMPACT , MOMENT OF TRUTH  and MOMENT OF CLARITY are now available at all major retailers. (The complete trilogy is also available as one paperback volume or an ebook bundle and all three are available in audio!) There's also a brand new novella to round out this trilogy: MOMENT OF DOUBT is book 3.5 in the series and catches up with Colllin and Tanner down the road...


There are two additional stories in the MOMENTS IN TIME series that can be read as standalone novels. MOMENT OF SILENCE  and MOMENT OF FATE (both available now) both feature secondary characters from the first three books! Another standalone novel, MOMENT OF PASSION will release in late 2017!


My erotic contemporary romance MARRY ME is currently available from Tule Publishing.  The contemporary Destiny Series, MEANT TO BE and HOLDING ON is now available exclusively at Amazon (and free to Kindle Unlimited subscribers for a limited time).


LONDON CALLING, a contemporary NA co-written with Karen Booth, is now available at Amazon (and is free for Kindle Unlimited subscribers).

Stay tuned for more info on the re-releases of LEAVE THE LIGHTS ON and THEN, AGAIN which will both be coming soon from Entangled Publishing!
