In children's, she loves character-driven stories with heart, fantasy, contemporary realistic, inventive mysteries, fresh voices and experiences, empowering themes, and magical realism. In adult fiction, she is drawn to women's fiction, intergenerational tales, sci-fi/fantasy, magical realism, psychological thrillers, historical dramas, and light-hearted contemporary fiction. In nonfiction, Kari is interested in history, biography, pop science and psychology, humor, parenting, and quirky topics. For all genres, the most important elements for her are an engaging voice and compelling narrative, as well as a strong sense of pacing.
