Originally from Nova Scotia, Karen Harding moved to Oakville, ON, nine years ago. She is the mother of two teenage daughters and has always enjoyed reading. It has only been in the last couple of years that she has allowed herself the time to write. Her daughters and husband have turned out to be excellent editors and she values their input. The opportunity to travel to a number of places around the world has provided ample background. She has had an item recently published in Canadian Stories magazine and is currently working on a novel.
