Karen's Profile

About

I have two beautiful children who keep me busy and a husband I love very much. We have two dogs, a cat, a bunny, a guinea pig and fish. Our home is constantly busy and full of life. I currently work as a one-on-one aide for an autistic child in my school district. I find my job rewarding and satisfying knowing I'm helping children. Children are important to me and I try to help and influence as many as I can.

I was taught to crochet as a small child by my grandmother. I have inherited her collection of crochet hooks, much of which are steel and wood. I have many fond memories with my grandmother, who also taught me to needlepoint, cross stitch and crewel. My work has been used in photo shoots for Flink Big Dreams for Little People, a one hundred percent organic baby and toddler bedding store. www.flinkliving.com

I am also a children's book author with two published books entitled, The Island of Rouge and Stylus along with three short stories. Writing has been my passion since I was eight years old. I find it relaxing and enjoyable, but it is a lot of work. I can say it is a job I love no matter what part of the writing process. I practice writing every day to hone my skills. In my free time I needle point, read, watch movies and hang out with my family. One of our favorite pastimes is to watch movies on our deck and play games. I love all things Christmas, the written word, anything crocheted or knitted, reading (I can read a book a day) and most of all, love my family.
