Karissa is an avid reader, usually averaging about 3 books a week. She reads mostly junior fiction, because she loves a good story and good writing, but without all the cussing and sex. She will read YA and some adult fiction, mostly just to keep up on what’s good – but she’s very picky. Karissa has worked as a junior high English teacher, a news correspondent for a major newspaper, and a public relations writer for a major university. She recently was a library clerk, where her favorite part of the job was helping patrons, young or old, get excited about reading. She is currently working at the Daily Herald as a business and community reporter. Find more about her at http://karissaneely.wordpress.
