Karen is a 60-something, retired teacher, mom of two fabulous sons, and keeper of a small yard. Over the years she's been a social worker, writer, teacher of young children, and other assorted titles. Richmond has been home for over 30 years, although originally Karen is from "up north." Writing, hiking, yoga, reading, and traveling have always been joys and escapes. As Karen enters into this next phase of life, as a newly divorced person, with a few physical challenges, she's ready to embrace/tackle whatever comes along.
