Hi! I’m Karen!
I’m a children’s picture book writer, who’s kind of obsessed with kid’s stories. If I find myself in Barnes and Noble, I’m uncontrollably drawn to the children’s section, like Augustus Gloop is drawn to chocolate.
In my former career as an elementary teacher, story time was always my favorite part of the day. There’s nothing like casting a spell on a classroom of kids as I transport them to another time and place through the pages of a good book.
As a kid, I loved Corduroy, Emily Elizabeth and her big dog Clifford, Curious George and the man in the big yellow hat, and feisty little Madeline. I hope that my children’s picture books find themselves in your home and your heart like these beloved children’s classics.

When I’m not writing you can catch me…
- walking around my suburban town hand in hand with my hubby, Mr. Wonderful.
- jet setting to visit my grown kids scattered across the United States.
- exploring nature in search of inspiration for my next children’s book.
- taking a day trip to Tahoe, Napa or San Francisco.
I’d love to hear your comments on my blog!
