Bio: Eager to explore beyond Texas, Karen went to Duke University in Durham, N.C. Over her four years there, she became the editor of The Chronicle and found the two loves of her life—journalism and her husband, Scott. Karen was the business editor for The Dallas Morning News and later the Dallas bureau chief for the Wall Street Journal. Somewhere along the way, frustrated with the nonfiction available to her daughters, she decided to try her hand at writing for young people, combining her interest in storytelling with the journalist’s practice of telling complicated stories in a clear way.
