Cioffi Ventrice, Karen

Hi, there! I’m Karen Cioffi, an award-winning author and children’s ghostwriter with over 200 clients from around the world. My middle-grade fantasy, “Walking Through Walls,” was honored with the Children’s Literary Classics 2012 Silver Award.

I’ve worked with child psychologists, therapists, teachers, parents, grandparents, business owners, lawyers, an accountant, a dentist, and others. And, I have multiple series clients as well as return clients.

I work closely with my clients to ensure that each story exceeds my clients’ expectations.

I’m also a former lead editor with 4RV Publishing and former writer for two online reading comprehension learning centers. Along with this, I instruct a ghostwriting class for WOW! Women on Writing and am editor-in-chief of Writers on the Move.
