moved to Nashville when she was 12 and it made her very happy. She has
lived here ever since, except for a short stint in Italy, which she
loved, but she was still very happy to come back to Nashville. Her
charmed life continued when she fell by chance into the book business
when she was 20 years old. She has never left it (except for that stint
in Italy). Besides reading, Karen loves travel, the outdoors, music,
photography and her friends.
