about

 

Hiya, I'm Karen.

As opposed to the "You go, girl!" variety, I write mainly on the "So, what now?" These are the stories about our home and life as expats in Ireland, loving the people who inhabit it, and the baggage we accrued when God called us to something more than the American Dream. 

By day, I'm a freelance writer and editor, perpetual volunteer, wife to a missional woodworking artist, and the introverted mother of three extroverted TCKs. After bedtime or before the school bell rings, I moonlight as a freelance writer and editor. Currently, I'm the weekly columnist for VOX.ie, an Irish faith and culture magazine and I report on the Irish religious landscape for Religion News Service. I also serve as an editor and regular contributor to Velvet Ashes, an online community for cross-cultural women. More of my writing can be found here.

My family and I - plus a lurcher called Cocoa - live in Dublin, Ireland.
