Karlie Klemme spends her days supporting software systems with nervous coworkers—all fearing Karlie will kill them off in one of her stories. Decapitate a developer? Asphyxiate an analyst? Maybe maim a manager? When Karlie gazes off in the distance, everyone starts to sweat.
Desperate to use her powers for good, Karlie put pen to paper and wrote Tourist Trapped, a suspense novel that debuted in 2014. She set the story in Cancun, tapping into her experiences from numerous jaunts to the Yucatan.
When not torturing characters or frolicking in the tropics, Karlie enjoys kayaking, gardening, skiing, and joyrides in her roadster. She lives in Wisconsin with a Westie and a Scottie-mix who allow Karlie to cohabit with them…as long as the treats cupboard remains well stocked.
