I am the author of four published "Romantic Thrillers" and have finished the first in a new Romantic Suspense series. I was on the air for 15 years as a TV News Reporter and Anchor in SF, LA and DC. I also served in The White House, first as Deputy Press Secretary, later as Senior Director and Spokesman for the National Security Council.  Now I include many of those experiences in my novels. On various book tours, I've had over 350 speeches/events for groups/conventions/libraries/churches and book clubs. My website is: www.karnabodman.com.
