Jillian grew up on her family’s homestead on Washington state, near Carnation, Washington, where she raised cattle to pay for her college tuition, rode horses through the pristine foothills of the Cascade Mountain range and scribbled stories in her spare time.

Tripping over one of my three dogs is a regular occurrence, or being used as a piece of furniture by my cat. Thankfully, being blessed with a good sense of humor, I manage!

Writing has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. After working at everything from being a 9-1-1 operator to a bartender, to working at a spa, and there was that one stint at the…well, never mind.

One day I sat down and realized it was time to follow my dream and write.

Once I started, I couldn’t stop. Writing is similar to breathing to me, it’s just a part of who I am. I’m blessed to be able to do something I love. Spending my days with my dogs and cat, plucking out words is a dream come true.

I’m the mother of two grown boys, and happily married to a patient man who graciously laughs at my silly jokes, even though my kids tell me I’m not funny. They are apparently wrong.

What Does Author Chris Karlsen Do?  She Writes Amazing Books!

KnightBlindness HighRes

Ready for battle, Medieval English knight, Stephen Palmer, charges into the French enemy’s cavalry line. Heeding a warning given months before, he hesitates as he comes face-to-face with the knight in the warning. Struck down in the year 1356, he finds himself landing in the year 2013. Grievously wounded, he’s taken to a nearby hospital. Confused by the new world surrounding him, he attempts to convince the staff he’s from another time, only to find they think him mad. Rescued by friends, who, to his surprise, have also come through time, he must find a way to function in this odd modern England. He is quickly enchanted by the kind Esme Crippen, the young woman hired to tutor him. She too is enchanted by him. Tempted to deepen the relationship, she hesitates thinking him adorable, but mad. He must discover the means for getting her to believe the truth, all the while, unknown to him, he didn’t come forward in time alone. The enemy knight has also traveled to 2013. French noble, Roger Marchand, doesn’t question why the English knight who charged him hesitated. That fraction of a pause gave him the advantage needed and he brought his sword down upon the Englishman’s helmet hard, unhorsing the knight. He moved to finish the Englishman off when the world changed in a rush of sensations as he is ripped through time. Seeking a reason for the terrible event, he enters a nearby chapel. There, thinking God has chosen him for a quest to turn French defeat that day in 1356 to victory, he sets out to find the English knight. The man he is convinced holds the key to time. If he returns to the day of the battle, he can warn his king of mistakes that snatched victory from them.

A LIFE, FORWARD is released!

We are so excited to announce that A Life, Forward, by author Tracy Hewitt Meyer has been released! The second book in The Rowan Slone series is ready for your viewing pleasure.

A-Life-Forward_T_H_Meyer_Cover-(New-Tagline)Her father is gone. Her mother is in jail. And Rowan Slone has left her dysfunctional, violent past behind. With college looming on the horizon, she has a new job that she loves, and a safe place to call home. She is close to achieving everything she ever wanted-a sense of family, a sense of purpose, and a sense of self.

But there are cracks in Rowan’s life that threaten to send her future crumbling to the ground. When her relationship begins to suffer, her father returns and her long-held secret is discovered, Rowan must find the courage to fight for the most important thing yet-herself.

Excerpt from A Life, Forward:

My heart felt heavy, like it was weighted with a ten-ton boulder.

The world beneath my feet was shaking more and more each day,

threatening to knock me over. I had come so far from the razor-wielding

girl I was last year. But things felt like they were slipping,

and I wasn’t sure how much more I could take.

“I don’t want to be that girl,” I whispered. “I don’t want to be

that girl.” The girl with all the problems. The girl who whines, cries,

pleads with life to be better. I want to be the girl who survives, who

finds a way to be happy, who finds her place.

It all begun with A Life, Redefined:

Seven years ago, an innocent act by Rowan Slone turned her life into a nightmare. Since the age of ten she’s lived with the burden of her baby brother’s death. Now she is seventeen and all she wants to do is graduate high school, go to college, and escape the loveless family she has endured all these years—the same family that holds her responsible for his death. But no one holds her responsible more than herself. When long-time crush Mike Anderson invites her to the Prom, suddenly her future looks brighter. Rowan’s younger sister, Trina, however, is determined to ruin her new-found happiness, no matter the cost. And when Rowan discovers her mother’s long-held secret, she finds herself teetering on the edge of an abyss. Can Rowan find the strength to move toward the future or is she doomed to dwell in the past?

[su_divider top=”no”]

GG: Welcome to Gliterary Girl, Tracy, and thanks for sitting down and chatting with us.  We are excited for our readers to get to know you better! First question, When and why did you begin writing?

Tracy: My mom sold my childhood home recently and as I was cleaning out my things, I found stories that I’d written as far back as elementary school. I didn’t realize how much writing spoke to me, though, until I was in an AP English class in high school. I wrote two short stories that year and something in me changed. I have always been passionate about reading. After that year, I became passionate about writing.

In college, I majored in English and took as many creative writing classes as I could. I was not a good writer at that point. I didn’t understand the mechanics of taking a story from a good idea to a flushed-out readable piece of prose. But there was one short story I wrote where I pushed the limits of my ideas until the story tinkered on the brink of being outrageous. It was the one story that received the most positive comments of any I had written. That was a true learning experience.

After graduation, I dappled in writing here and there but it wasn’t until years later that I decided, It’s now or never. So I made it now.

GG:  Who encouraged you or what made you decide to write a novel and seek publication?

Tracy: I tried a novel-writing class in college and found it extremely difficult. Short stories came much more naturally to me. But one day over a holiday weekend, I popped into a used bookstore and left with an armful of treasures (aka romance novels!). I started reading that night and thought, Well, I can do that. So, I joined Romance Writers of America, started attending workshops, and began to read books as a writer rather than just as a reader. I wrote an historical romance novel and then there was no turning back, even though there have been times when I thought this business was just too difficult and quitting would have been an easy answer.

GG:  Do we “see” some of you in your characters?

Tracy: I’m not sure how honest to be in this answer! Yes, there can be bits of me in the characters I create. But my characters are more of a culmination of  pieces of several different people-be they friends, acquaintances, the girl at the coffee shop, a character on television, or even someone from a dream. I take the bits and pieces from a wide range of people and put them together to create a character. The character has to speak to me, though, regardless of how I created them. I have to hear their voice or I can’t write their story.

GG:  Tell us a little about the community you’re building through your blog and social media.

Tracy: I write across genres so I don’t have a focus for my blog or social media. I try to share writing tips and suggestions, accolades and hurts, tidbits of my personal life that are either heart-warming or snarky and funny (usually the latter). I find people relate to personal stories more than me sharing a good review and I like that. I like communicating with people on a more personal level.

GG:  Where do you go when you need to recharge?

Tracy: I need to be alone to recharge, something I am not very often. If it were up to me, I’d call a time-out and step away from life for a day (or two). But I don’t have that luxury. Who does? So I recharge with baths, books and trips to the library where I can be surrounded by silence. I do love silence. One guilty pleasure I have is to grab take-out sushi and turn on a rerun of The Tudors while the kids are in school. It’s a perfect way to recharge during the afternoon. [su_divider top=”no”]
