About Karen

IMG-7607 (1)

I’m a writer.

That’s a self portrait. In this picture, I’m a mandala, holding back the world. My legs look too skinny, but my arms are strong.

As you can see, I have no talent for painting.

Instead, I write.

My topics include science, health, and history, women’s studies, relationships, and…well…any theme that intrigues me. I’ve written extensively for the equine and animal wellness market.

I’ve written and published 400 or so feature articles in both regional and national magazines. My editors tell me I have a knack for finding unique and creative slants on well-worn topics.

I’m now exploring short fiction and memoir.

My personal essay, “One Kind of Woman”, appeared in the small lit press, Still Crazy Literary Magazine, January 2016 edition, available on Kindle.

I’ve also provided editing services for freelance writers whose work has appeared in Distinctly Montana, Outside Bozeman, Montana Pioneer, and Yellowstone Science.


I’d love to hear from you.
