Karen  Hawkins

Karen Hawkins grew up in Tennessee, part of a large extended family that includes her brother and sister, an adoptive sister, a slew of foster siblings, and a variety of exchange students. She would snuggle under the comforter on her bed with a flashlight and a book to escape the chaos (and to hide when it was her turn to do the dishes), a behavior she still practices to this day.
