TK Read, who writes her award winning middle grade books under the byline “Kam Karem,” works by day as an attorney and mediator at The Read Law Firm, P.C.  She is a proud member of Southern Breeze region of The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators where she serves as Critique Group Coordinator and as Local Liaison for SE Atlanta. She is also the co-chair of The Conyers Book Festival, which you can learn more about here:

As a mother of three, TK uses her young adults as background research for her books. In the wee hours of the morning before the rush of the day, she downs coffee and chocolate and writes romances, young adult thrillers, and middle grade fantasies.  When she’s not writing, she’s reads all the fiction she can load onto her Kindle, runs slowly for miles and miles, and messes around with acrylics and oils.

In TK’s award winning book, Ranger Nader & The Sunstruck Phantom (the first of two in the Guardian Chronicles Series), she focuses on the constant struggle between conservationists who strive to preserve the forest versus those who clear-cut it in the name of “progress” through the lens of a teenage boy. Ranger inherits the title of “Forest Keeper,” a magic ax, and the family feud with that infamous clear-cutter, Gilgamesh, of Epic fame.
