Karrine Steffans

Powered by imdb

From meager beginnings on the thirty-mile island of St. Thomas to New York Times best selling author residing in Los Angeles, Karrine Steffans has come a long way. Details of the first twenty-five years of her complicated, yet, thrilling former life and lifestyle are captured in the pages on her memoir, Confessions of a Video Vixen, published by Harper Collins Publishers, making a biography almost obsolete. Since Confessions debuted on June 28, 2005, Karrine and her enthralling story has been on the lips and minds of most everyone.Among many other mediaoutlets Paula Zahn, Donny Deutsch, Tyra Banks, Bill O'Reilly, and the queen of daytime herself, Oprah Winfrey have sought Karrine and helpedpropel her into the limelight and even contributed satirical editorial to HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher. This sudden thrust into the world's eye has prompted publishing giant Hachette Book Group USA/Grand Central Publishing (formerly Warner Books) to welcome Karrine into their family, inking two publishing contracts for three additional books.Karrine's premiere venture with Hachette is her continuing memoir, and yet another New York Times bestseller, entitled The Vixen Diaries, published September 2007. In March 2007, Karrine instated her own imprint aptly named, Steffans Publishing through which she assists undiscovered writers in breaking into the business of publishing. Steffans Publishing receives hundreds of synopsis a month, through SteffansPublishing.com, and each is meticulously combed over by Karrine and her staff. Synopses worthy of becoming a published manuscript are the present to the major publishing houses Karrine has affiliations and relationships with.Karrine has added magazine contributor to her list of accomplishments with her first article for the October 2008 issue of XXL Magazine. The article takes readers inside her overly publicized, yet, misunderstood relationship with music artist Lil'Wayne.She is also a staff writer at Telepictures online entity,MomLogic.com as well as Fox News Corporation's FNC-iMag.com. Karrine has since published her third New York Times best seller, entitled The Vixen Manual: How to Find, Seduce & Keep the Man You Want, which made its debut on NBC's The Today Show, July 13, 2009 and was as instant New York Times best seller.Karrine has also inked her third publishing deal for her fourth book and continues to court radio, television and film entities while searching for only the most perfect situation and opportunity to further and expand her brand. She is also attached to a reality program for a major cable network, to be announced at a later date. Her personal website, Karrine.com has, since July 2007, been visited more than 6,000,000 times, proving she is a growing pop culture influence.A married mother of two, Karrine can't believe all she has accomplished in such a short amount of time and looks forward to leaving the uncertainty of her twenties behind and welcoming a new era. With all that goes on in Karrine's business life,still, she insists on being a mother first and finds loves and strengthin the support of her family. Working from home allows her the luxuries of being successful both as a literary figure and as a parent and she wouldn't have it any other way.Karrine Steffans is living proof that change is good and confession is good for the soul but she is, most importantly, a testament to the old adage; to whom much is given, much is required and her own adage, just because you may have started off wrong, doesn't mean you won't end up right.  See full bio on IMDb »
