She is a graduate of the American School in London and has a BS in Management from Tulane University. When not writing, she spends her time reading, scrapbooking, playing piano, and avoiding cooking. She has two grown children and currently lives near Atlanta, Georgia with her husband and two spoiled Havanese dogs. Karen will be appearing at Word of South with the authors Beatriz Williams, Colleen Oakley and Kimmery Martin, and the musician Del Suggs.
