Hi Book Lovers!
I am a wife, mother, reader, writer, photographer, fountain soda addict, and true crime aficionado. I married my high school sweetheart and have been a hopeful romantic ever since. I live with my husband, two daughters, and a menagerie of animals on a small farm in rural Maryland. Keep up with our cute critters on my blog (link below). When I’m not writing, you can probably find me binging true crime shows or stalking my kiddos with my camera.
I have a dual B.A. in English: Secondary Education and Psychology. My Master’s Degree in Liberal Arts included classes in ceramics, grammar/linguistics, the madness in genius, and juggling among other things. In fact, I still practice juggling with oranges in my kitchen much to the delight of my children and horror of my husband.
I LOVE to read, so feel free to drop me an email with a book suggestion!

Two Tips for Writing

Tip 1: Just write! I know people say this all the time, but honestly it is the best advice. When I’m in a rut, I pull out some random writing prompts and just write based on those – a scene, a character sketch, a moment. They don’t even have to be related to my current work in progress. Often these short sketches become part of later published works. And just like any other skill, writing will get easier, faster, and better with practice.

Tip 2: Write what you like. Yes, the paranormal reverse harem shifter romances are all the rage right now. But they aren’t what I enjoy reading. Therefore, if I tried to jump on that bandwagon, I’m sure I would fail miserably and the stories would be cliché, stilted, and forced. By writing in a genre I like to read, I completely understand the expectations of that genre and what the reader expects.

Two Tips for Family

Here are two tips for Photographing your Family. I’m a hobbyist photographer and family historian. My kids call me Momarazzi because I’m always following them with my camera. In an era where images demand our attention, there are some easy ways you can get great photographs of your family even with your cell phone. For examples of these tips, check out my photography Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/kariganske photography

Tip 1: Get down on the kids’ (or pet’s) level. Instead of always shooting down on them from your height, bend down and get on their level. This gives your viewer the perspective of your subject and brings them into the moment. It also lets you shoot straight on and capture the true essence of your subject.

Tip 2: Play! Not every shot should be a nice posed portrait. Try to capture your subject as they are being themselves. Instead of asking your child to look at the camera, move yourself to them and ask them questions instead. (What type of bird is that? What do you have in your hand? Show me a funny face) This will get authentic emotions/reactions and capture these fleeting everyday moments.

Meet Karigan Hale @kariganspencil Author of How to Date Your Boss #RLFblog #steamyromanceKarigan Hale, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about How to Date Your Boss.

How to Date Your Boss by Karigan Hale

Genre Steamy, Contemporary Romantic Comedy

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Office Ethics Rule #1 – Do not date your boss.

But aren’t rules meant to be broken?

Nora Ridgeway was comfortable in her relationship; her boyfriend was not. Now, jobless, homeless, and boyfriendless, Nora sets out for Washington D.C. to prove to herself–and her mother–that she can actually “adult.” Her “No more bad decisions” policy is tested right away when her new boss proves to be tall, dark, broody, and handsome. Can she resist his adorable dimple and hard abs to keep her job and her dignity?

Andrew Forrester is Mr. I-Don’t-Do-Relationships. He’s focused on his career and doesn’t have time for emotional females. Until he watches his new assistant swimming in a bikini and wonders what it would be like to trace the drops of water on her body.

With his tongue. Unfortunately, rule #1 of having a subordinate is “No touching”. But, what if no one found out?

Can Nora and Andrew figure out a way to navigate a jealous ex and nosy coworkers to find their happily ever after?

All books in the How to Date series are stand-alone but interconnected stories based in the town of Kensington, MD. If you like snarky female characters, steamy romance, and slow-burn sexual tension, then this series is for you!

Tell us about yourself as a person.

What makes you different from other people?

I can cross one eye. I am a birth photographer. I once dated an NFL kicker. I don’t like coffee, Tom Petty, or Dumbo. I can tell you anything you need to know about any serial killer.

What is your personality type?

Somewhere between an A and B. As a first born, I love to be in charge of things. I’m super organized with some things, but also kind of a mess with others. I burn hot and quick and often leave projects unfinished (do NOT look in my “craft room” which is where crafts go to die).

What was your favorite childhood game?

Flashlight tag in the neighborhood. Or Nerts – a card game my entire extended family would play at the same time. It takes speed and hand-eye coordination. And forgiveness–what happens during Nerts games stays at the table.

What is your favorite subject to talk about?

Serial Killers. Grammar. Books. Photography. Chickens (we have almost 40-that’s over 3 dozen eggs a day!).

What is your favorite book?

I am an English teacher by day, so my first love is classic literature. I also read almost 100 books a year, so picking a favorite is almost as hard as my male characters. If forced to choose, I would have to say Far From the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy. I read that book at least once year.

What is your favorite meal?

Steamed crabs with lots of Old Bay. Or popcorn. Or Chris Hemworth’s abs…

Tell us about yourself as a writer.

What made you want to be a writer?

I’ve always wanted to be a writer. I used to write stories all the time when I was little. I became an English teacher because of my love for reading and writing, and I finally got up enough courage to actually publish some of my stories.

What are your favorite books for writing advice?

All books in my genre. The more I read, the more I feel confident about the expectations for my genre.

What are your favorite reference books?

When you go to a convention, what kinds of things do you take along?

My camera – I’m a photographer. A notebook and pencil – yes, I’m that old. My computer with my current WIP. Business cards/bookmarks – network, network, network!

What’s your best advice for a new writer?

Just do it! Write every day. Even if it is just 10 words or 10,000 words (yeah, right), practice makes perfect. I’ve gotten some great scenes (and also great book ideas) from daily writing prompts that have nothing to do with my current WIP.

What are your writing goals for this year?

I hope to write at least two more books in the How to Date Series–How to Date a Rockstar and How to Date a Millionaire. I’m also working on some spicy short stories and a steamy Christmas in July novel. Hopefully I’ll also be able to start a new series involving teachers–write what you know, right?
