I’ve wanted to be a writer since the age of five when I pounded out my first story on my Mom’s typewriter. (Yes, I am at least that old to have used a typewriter.) I was the Editor of every school newspaper through high school (and as a military brat, I went to a whole lotta schools), wrote my first paid magazine article in my teens, and served as Editor/Publisher/Writer for a multiple award-winning international publication called Middle Eastern Dancer for 14 years. (If you’re stumped on the title, think belly dance, and yes, add that to my list of non-traditional expressive outlets). In years before and aft, I’ve covered space news for newspapers, lifestyle choices for magazines, interviewed celebrities for entertainment publications and became co-owner/Editor-Writer for a film/TV/Commercial industry newsletter. My passions are cooking & baking, traveling, family, reading, ballroom dancing, and always, writing.
Some writers are challenged to find their voice and direction. I face a daily identity crisis.Some days I’m Karen Kuzsel– embedded deeply within the hospitality, meetings & events, and entertainment industries as an active member of Meeting
