Friends think of Karen as a travel guru. She thinks of herself as an adventure junkie. Whatever...she loves being on the road, tasting new cultures, new experiences, art, food. As a passionate entrepreneur, she created several businesses on the US mainland, in Hawaii and the South Pacific, for many years brokering private islands and boutique resorts.
Today she writes a regular newspaper column, freelances for many companies and publications, and publishes photography books, cookbooks, and novels.
Traveling to over 90 islands and 60 countries, she has tales to tell. Stories from magical places pepper her writings, which are autobiographically inspired and informed. Visit One Foot Island and Saturday markets; watch quick-hipped dancers, hear tribal drums, feast on coconut cuisine and taste the essence of island places, island lives.
"Life's a trip...so get out there
and enjoy this bright, beautiful planet."
