J.K. Rock is the pseudonym for writing partners--and sisters-in-law--Joanne and Karen Rock. After selling some adult romances on their own, they thought it would be fun to write YA together. Joanne is a three-time RITA nominee, a Romantic Times Career Achievement Nominee, and a frequent speaker at writing conferences. Her books have been translated into twenty languages. Karen is an eighth grade teacher who has published newspaper and magazine articles along with YA short stories and plays.
