A Conversation with Kari Edgren, Author of Goddess Born (with a Giveaway!)

I’m reading this RIGHT NOW. (Perhaps literally, depending on when you read this.) Review coming very soon! Welcome, Kari; thanks so much for agreeing to be with us today! What 5 things should readers know about you? I am an introverted extravert. I love people, but keep my own company very well. From age twelve to fifteen, I wanted desperately to be a cosmetologist.
