Full Name: Karen Heuler
Born: Brooklyn, New York, USA
Occupation: Writer
Nationality: American


Karen Heuler was born in Brooklyn in 1949, the second of four children. She attended a Catholic school, then earned a Bachelor's Degree and later a Master's Degree, both in English, from Long Island University. During that time she dropped out of school for a year and worked on Wall Street, went back and finished her undergraduate degree, worked at Dell Publishing's crossword department for a year, then went back and got her Master's Degree. She moved into publishing jobs, staying for a few years in each to pay off her debts and then quitting to have time to write.

Heuler wrote her first novel when she was 11, in longhand, skipping two lines, and leaving the back of each page blank but counting it. It has luckily been lost to the ages. She began publishing stories in the mid-80s. In 1995, her first collection of stories was published by the University of Missouri and the New York Times review called it "haunting and quirky." In 1998, one of her stories won an O. Henry Award, and in 2003 one of her books was a finalist for Barbara Kingsolver's Bellwether Prize. In 2009 one of her short stories was a finalist for the Shirley Jackson Award. She has now published more than 30 stories.
