Karen Jones lives in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia with her husband of 44 years. She has one daughter and one son, three granddaughters and one great-grandson. She has recently retired and is excited about starting a new career in writing. She explains how she began to write: Being in charge of directing the Christmas play each year, a lot of money was spent on scripts that I just couldn't use. They just didn't fit our little church's need. So one Christmas, I wrote my own script and never told anyone. And guess what, no one knew the difference! After several years, my secret came out and I was encouraged to submit one for publication. To my delight it was accepted and now I have been published. I love using humor in my scripts. I find it makes them more memorable, and it is my small means of spreading the Gospel.
