Hi! I'm Karen Hopkins. I grew up in Martinez, California, and at the age of seventeen I moved to Chile. After completing a university degree I worked for Pan American Airlines. Based in London, England I had the wonderful opportunity to travel in Europe, the Middle East, India, and South America.
Later I taught Spanish and English in among other places: a private school in Panama, at the "most remote school in the United States" in Ticaboo, Utah, Westminster College in Salt Lake City, out on the Navajo Reservation, as an exchange teacher in Hermosillo, Mexico, an inner city high school, and Cochise College in Nogales, Arizona.
My husband and I along with out eight children traveled extensively in Mexico and Central America, camping in the remote highlands of Chiapas and Guatemala. I currently live and write at our home on the Mexican border. Happy reading!
