Karen Tuft

Karen Tuft was born with a healthy dose of curiosity about pretty much everything, so as a child she taught herself to read and play the piano. She studied composition at BYU, graduating from the University of Utah in music theory, and was a member of Phi Kappa Phi and Pi Kappa Lambda honor societies. Before delving into the world of writing, Karen was a pianist, composer, and arranger. She has spent countless hours back stage and in orchestra pits for theater productions along the Wasatch Front. Among her varied interests, she likes to figure out what makes people tick, wander through museums, and travel—whether it’s by car, plane, or paperback.
