Hi. I’m Karen and I live in the beautiful city of Toowoomba, Queensland. I am a wife, mother, teacher and student who loves reading, writing, meeting new people, learning new things, discovering new places and spending time with family and friends.

After growing up in Adelaide, South Australia, I have moved around a bit, but am happy to now call Toowoomba home. With two young adult children, I am an almost empty nester.  My son, Dan, has autism, so disability is a big part of my life, while my daughter, Bec, is getting ready to head off to Brisbane and university.

Currently I am part way through a Bachelor of Arts at the University of Southern Queensland, here in Toowoomba. After being in and out of teaching over the years I felt ready for a change. I am not quite sure where it will lead, but I am happy to follow my interest in English Literature, History and Creative Writing for a while and see what happens.
