About Karen

WHERE ART, HISTORY AND STORIES INTERSECT

I write about race and history.

I’ve taught African American quilting for over twenty years. I hold a Master’s in Historic Preservation and as a historian, I help museums and other historical institutions design exhibits that deal with issues of racial and cultural diversity. I am a foodie and own way too many cookbooks. I love horses and I am involved in further documenting African American involvement in horse racing.

All my understanding and love of history and research gets poured in to my writing of fiction in what I hope is interesting, and powerful ways.
