We were delighted to welcome the world famous, international best selling author Karen Rose to Old Grumpy's Gallery this year.



As well as being a truly gifted writer, fans were truly delighted to discover what a wonderful lady Karen is. She was warm and generous towards all who could make it to the Gallery to meet her, taking the time to speak and sign to as many people as possible.

Karen has, as you would expect, fallen head over heels in love with Mount Maunganui, and will no doubt be back to visit all of us at Old Grumpy's Gallery soon.

Fans of Karen's books in New Zealand can buy her many best selling novels from us. For those of you not lucky enough to be near us, visit the official Karen Rose website to see how to get her fantastic novels.
