Karen Pearson

Biography

You could say Karen Pearson lives at the bottom of the world except there’s no ‘up’ or ‘down’ in space. It was really just Europe’s idea to put itself at the top. Still it suits her very well ‘down’ in New Zealand with lots of ocean around and not too many people. She lives with her husband and two teenagers and a grey dog. She writes for a living, which is lucky because it's her favourite thing to do after sleeping and eating.

Karen Pearson has worked as an advertising copywriter and a features writer for glossy magazines. She has a Master of Arts in Creative Writing.
