About the Author
Karen A. Chase is an independent author. Her first novel, CARRYING INDEPENDENCE, book one of the 3-part Founding-Documents Series, is historical fiction about the signing of the Declaration of Independence. It was a nominee for the 2020 Library of Virginia Literary Awards, and was awarded #12 of the 100 Best Indie Books of 2019. Her first book, BONJOUR 40: A PARIS TRAVEL LOG, garnered seven independent publishing awards. Originally from Canada, Karen is now chasing histories from Richmond, VA.

"It is seldom we see women approaching fiction during a time period like the American Revolution, a time rife with bloody battles and political intrigue. Karen A. Chase has taken on the task with this first novel and handled it with the grace of an experienced storyteller and historian."
-- Beth Macy, New York Times Best selling author of Factory Man and Dopesick

"Believable characters, an engaging narrative, and a sense of historical reality... The best aspect for me, of course, is the presence of Shawnee people who are reasonable, thinking human beings."
-- Colin Calloway, National Book Award Finalist for The Indian World of George Washington, and Professor Native American Studies Dartmouth College

"Karen A. Chase's new novel tells the gripping story, based on historical fact, of the heroic efforts to keep the signed copy of the Declaration of Independence out of the hands of invading British forces. For anyone interested in the American Revolution and birth of our nation this is a compelling read."
-- James Horn, President & CO Jamestown Rediscovery Historic Jamestown and author of 1619

"Sometimes you can learn more about a war from a good novel than you can from a history book. That's what Karen A. Chase does in Carrying Independence. She vividly evokes what it was like to be in the trenches of the Revolutionary War in a way that few--if any--historians have done."
-- Marc Leepson, author of What So Proudly We Hailed, and Lafayette: The Idealist General
