My name is Karen and I am a teacher writer and children’s book author. Here are a few things about me.

  • I love to write – not just stories, but different types of writing. This helps me to keep my writing muscles strong.
  • I love teaching and 3rd grade was my favorite grade to teach.
  • My favorite drink is tea. I have a shelf in my closet with all kinds of teas.
  • I love to travel and each place I explore is a new adventure.
  • I spent my summers at the beach growing up which is why the beach is my favorite place.
