About Karin Smith

Karin is a recovering academic who turned into The Kraken about the time her son started school. She writes for www.iamthekraken.com and is working on her first novel, set in the Philadelphia suburbs and tentatively titled Main Line Mayhem. It’s a hilarious murder mystery that offers a glimpse of life in one of the country’s oldest, wealthiest enclaves where she lives. She’s mom to a tween son, and they live with Dark Lord Cheeto and Crowned Prince Nedward, their cats and Fries, Cheeseburger, McFlurry and Fil, their slightly disturbing hermit crabs. You can follow her anywhere you can find @thekrakensays
