The author of the well-regarded Cartographer Universe series (including the American Geological Series and the Terra Trilogy), Karen Abrahamson (aka Karen L. McKee) wrote her first poem at age six. Since then she has written and sold poetry, short fiction and Romance and Fantasy novels. Her non fiction has appeared in newspapers and magazines and often reflects her passion for travel and other cultures. In her words, “a bad day of writing is still better than the best moments of working for a living”.
After a wandering youth that took her across North America countless times, she currently lives in the Metro Vancouver area of Canada with two Bengal cats who inherited James Dean’s bad-ass attitude. All they’re lacking is the black leather. When she isn’t writing she makes her living as a consultant for non-profit and government agencies.
An inveterate traveler, amateur photographer, and a fan of old maps, Karen keeps a loaded backpack to hand because she never knows when she will meet a destination she can’t refuse. Come visit her varied destinations in her writing.
