Profile Information

Something About Me and My Book:
My name is Karen Gammons. I live in Northeast Texas with my wonderful husband Troy, my three children: Caleb, Randi, and Haylee, two cats and a dog.
I am the author of the Prince Andy and the Misfits series. The first book, Shadow Man and the second book, Epidemic in the Dark Lands are available where all books are sold. I am currently working on book 3, Loombria and hope to have it out by Christmas of 2012.
I have always thought that reading a book was like I was traveling through another person’s mind. I do hope you enjoy reading the books that I will be writing, but mostly I hope you enjoy taking a trip through my mind. The first stop will be Filligrim.

Book Teaser

"Andy thought he was just an average sixteen-year-old kid...

But one day his world is completely turned upside down as he learns the unbelievable truth of his identity: he is the prince of a faraway kingdom called Filligrim in the Valley of the Misfits—a magical place where pixies, elves, wizards, and dragons are just as likely to be inhabitants as humans. He was brought to this world following his birth—the only way to keep him from being murdered by his evil malicious grandfather.

Sounding more like a fairytale than reality, Andy at first thinks he must be dreaming. But then his aunt Gladdy reveals even more astonishing news: his mother, the Queen of the Misfits, is in trouble; she's been captured by goblins, and it's up to Andy to rescue her. Still in shock, he makes a decision that will forever alter life as he's known it. He will return to Filligrim and, with the help of six heroic Misfits, will embark on a mission to save the kingdom from the clutches of evil.

In Prince Andy and the Misfits: Shadow Man, Andy encounters one adventure after another as he works to uncover a traitor, rescue the queen from goblins, retrieve a stone of immense power, and solve the mystery surrounding the Shadow Man—the sinister mastermind behind it all. And perhaps most importantly, he must ultimately discover if he has the heart to become a true prince."

Professional Reviews

Lenda Selph--Teacher/Proofreader
I absolutely love this book! The theme of "Misfits" connects with the reader right away, since so many people in real life feel as though they just don't "fit in."
Adults and children will see creatures and kingdoms leap off the pages as the author expertly guides their imaginations, describing a land ne'er before dreamed of.
I can see teachers and parents reading this book to their students/children with the fun of learning new words, like "surreptitiously," and study guide questions to encourage discussion. But the best part of all, it is fun to read--for all ages!

Shorty Award

I was nominated for a Shorty Award. I'm thrilled to be nominated. I'm sure there are a lot of people who don't get nominated. I actually received two whole votes. Out of the 55 pages, of the 1096 nominees, I was on page 48 at the top, in the 122nd place.  Who knew I was so popular. lol. I'm going to think of this as a promising start to the year and pray that God will continue to pour his blessings down on my head.

Book Signings

Dec. 6, 2010

I know I have told about some of my book signings in other posts, but I felt I needed to have a separate category for it. Well, I’ve had three book signings. One was at the Miller County Courthouse. Judge

McNatt and all the ladies that Troy works with, wanted me to come and

sign books for them. The judge said I could come back and set up a

table in the courthouse and have a big book signing. He’s a very…

Beginning and Other Posts--Karen Gammons blog

Nov. 1, 2010

Well, it is almost the end of the year. What a journey I have had! To think that in January my book was just in the editing stage and now I have books coming to me. Such an awesome experience.

If you looked at it just so, it would almost be like I was giving birth to a child. Months of it getting better and better with fine tuning. Being covered…

I don't get to this site very often; too busy with writing and life's involvements in these years of my retirement after 50 years of paid-employment and student life: 1949 to 1999.

Shadow Man, Prince Andy and the misfits.

Hi Karen.

Yesterday got my copy, at last, only one problem, I have finished it, it was enthralling, I started to read, and just continued till bed time then first thing this morning, picked it up and finished it.

Super, and, gripping, I, hope the next instalment is soon available.

I do hope the readers of My wife's book are in for the same joy ride that I had.

Michael Abel-Smith.
