I am a retired grandma with five grandchildren. I was raised in the small town of Colville, WA but I now live in Spokane, WA. My father’s family had many talented storytellers. I grew up listening to wonderful tales that I am sure were embellished in many places. Still, I learned many things from hearing those stories. When I was teaching school I would have the children close their eyes and listen to classical music and I made up stories to tell them while I was trying to follow the emotion of the music. I don’t know why it has taken me so long to put pen to paper but here is my first book. I hope you enjoy it. -Karen
