About the Author

Karen Dietrich is a writer of fiction, poetry, and memoir. She earned an MFA in poetry from New England College.

Karen was born and raised in southwestern Pennsylvania and currently lives outside Pittsburgh with her husband and son.


"Karen Dietrich can stop your heart with a sentence."--Paula McLain, New York Times bestselling author
"Original metaphors and nice descriptions bolster this extended monologue of a potential killer... Dietrich's assured prose bodes well for the future."--Publishers Weekly
"Not easy to walk away from after reading the last page. Readers will find Evelyn's inner turmoil and actions haunting, and will likely never view a news story about yet another mass shooting the same way again."
"Dietrich has a writing style that feels like a breath of fresh air in a genre that sometimes suffers from a sense of sameness, and her characters and their dialogue are exquisitely rendered. A fine psychological thriller."--Booklist
"Girl At The Edge is a page turner from the very first one to the very end. The statement 'an author has to capture the reader from the very first line' is a perfect fit here with 'My father is a murderer.' Girl At The Edge takes readers into a dark and sinister universe that most of them will never have to encounter."
