My name is Kari Ganske

Hi Readers! I am a writer, reader, wife, mother, teacher, and photographer. I married my high school sweetheart - a real-life second chance love story! - and have been a hopeful romantic ever since. When I'm not reading swoon-worthy romances or letting my characters take over my stories, you can find me sipping on a fountain soda with a true crime documentary on TV.

At least I wish that was all I had to do. Usually I'm chasing my two daughters around with my camera, grading papers, or cleaning up after the animals on our mini-farm (at least goats, chickens, dogs, and cats are cute, right?). 

I love punny, snarky, witty humor, so when I couldn't find the shirts I wanted to poke fun at my favorite literary marvels, I decided to make them myself. Hence Writ and Wisdom Co was born, and proving once again that I am my own target audience.
