Karen Duvall is a native Californian who grew up in Hawaii, lived in Colorado most of her adult life, and now lives in Bend, Oregon, with her husband and four incredibly spoiled pets. She has three grown children and five grandchildren.
Karen has been telling stories since the age of three, when she wasn't yet able to write but could tell her tales to her mother, who wrote them down for her. Illustrating the stories with crayons was one of her favorite parts of writing those early books.
She still draws pictures, but she put her crayons away in favor of computer graphics. Karen is a professional graphic designer with a passion for portraying her characters and scenes by painting pictures with words. You can visit her online at her website.
