About Karen

Hi, I'm Karen Kerr. I write children's books with my own children as the characters. This makes it very special for my children and me. I also work as a Title 1 Para-Educator in an elementary school. I encourage children to write their own stories, and I believe that some day I will see their names on the front page of a book they wrote. I am a member of the SCBWI. I am currently working on an ad... More

Karen! So good to hear from you!! I'm glad you like Everland. And unfortunately no!! I won't be doing book signings any time soon!! At least not in the US. See I'm getting ready to go on what I guess you could call a "world tour"...in Iraq. But if you really like the books, you're welcome to subscri... more

I would like to give you a sneak preview of the novel I am currently working on.
Sneak Preview --
A pound on the door startled me. I must have dosed off for awhile. I thought that maybe if I ignored it, they'd go away. That didn't happen. Whoever it was, was about to break do... more

Wow Great news about the book signing-
I bet everyone loved it- If you got any pictures at your signing event, post them.
That is so cool.

Hi Karen, thanks for your comments on my illustrations.
I'm sure your daughter will love Australia. I live in the West, but Australians all over are a pretty friendly bunch.

Way to go Karen,
Good luck on the Book Fair-
Comment by Kathy Flanary Nelson on 6/11/2008 at 10:07 PM:
Hi, Karen,
I'm new arond here too so can't offer much help in that area.
You said you encourage your children to write their own stories. Oh, very encouraging for them.
I have a daughter and I've been writing since her birth. She took notice, and now at the encourag... more
Comment by Ricardo Amado on 5/30/2008 at 8:01 PM:
Hi Karen. You'll know when my book comes out. First and foremost I'll encourage for people to ask their nearest bookstores to order it for them. After that they'll have the option of buying directly from me. And finally I'll post links of all the online stores carrying the book. My goal is exposure ... more

Comment by Ricardo Amado on 5/19/2008 at 3:11 PM:
Hi Karen. You really do inspire me to keep going every time you leave a comment and it actually means a lot more from someone like you when you tell me my writing is good than say when a friend or a family member does because of course they'll tell me "oh that's a nice story." Today I'm making the ... more

Hi Karen,

I was looking into your publisher Lifevest Publishing's website but I don't see any way to make submissions or anything. How'd they work out for you? And let me know what you think of my story if you've gotten around to it so far.
Comment by Kathleen Rietz on 5/14/2008 at 12:39 AM:
Hi Karen - I love that you encourage kids to write! I encourage kids to draw!! Welcome!

Comment by Ricardo Amado on 5/11/2008 at 8:50 PM:
Hi Karen. Thanks for letting me be your friend. I know how you feel about putting your own kids as characters in your stories. I did it unintentionally while I wrote my book in Iraq. Subconsciously I must have been absorbing what my wife would write to me about their personalities ans when I cam hom... more
