Karen grew up in New Jersey and Delaware, but has called Virginia her home for the past twenty years. She holds a bachelor's degree in history from the University of Virginia and a master's degree in creative writing from Hollins University. She was an elementary and middle school class teacher for ten years at the Charlottesville Waldorf School before joining the faculty at Free Union Country School.

In addition to writing, she enjoys running, biking, yoga, baking, and reading books upon books. Karen lives in Crozet with her husband and step-son, and a cat named Teddy and a dog named Lyle.
