(a) I attended college.
(b) joined the workforce
(c) made lots of new friends
(d) gained experience in interacting and dealing with people in the business world
Finally, I decided I would enjoy learning how to treat and take care of the largest organ on human beings--the skin! And this revelation led me to trade school to learn how to be an Esthetician. I specialized in pre/post-operative skincare for laser and cosmetic surgery patients; and teen/ and adult acne corrective skincare; anti-aging treatments doing skin peels; using advanced technology machines and treatment products. I received many hours of certifications learning various treatment modalities over the years. During the process, I researched and developed my custom-blend skincare products. I opened several clinics in San Diego before we (hubby and me) decided we wanted to move to the Colorado Rockies. Once we made a move, I opened a day-spa in Durango, CO. I worked with a plastic surgeon and did a lot of networking to expand the business.

(Second Book) Fart Boomer's Let 'Em Rip Butt Blaster Gang! In the Tale of . . . The Fart Bomb That Saves a World! Come on now! At least you can see I still have a crazy imagination at my age! And what might that age be? I will tell you that it is 'ageless and timeless,' and let's leave it at that! And, as long as I keep that imagination at full speed, I will be alive and well. Seriously, I created this book from a dare, and I won't go into detail about how that subject came up, but I can tell you it wasn't a youngster who started it! Seriously, I'm beyond worrying about what people might think about this subject matter. I get a kick out of people that react with shock. It makes me giggle. And, I'm happy with how the artwork I did for this book came out awesome! I did have some help because of a situation that happened, but all the main characters I created.
2) The second book cover for F. Boomer and gang---I thought by having the gang on the front cover with a picture of a 'butt blast cloud' and an explosion going off at the bottom of the cloud, the gang sitting listening to a story by the genius storyteller, Fart Boomer, was revealing about what the story is about.
3) Cat-itude is a tribute to my three furry babies. As a 'cat mom' for many years, I love sharing my adoration with people that feel the same way about their kitties as I do. Ha! And, I'm sure these people can relate to the many Kodak moments my felines have given me, but Mom had no camera in hand! These cat owners will be familiar with some of those' looks' and predicaments captured in the photos of Cat-itude and the quotes that go with them.
Here is how this book came about. Fortunately, one day, one of my kitties, Daisy May, was seeking trouble and gave me one of her 'looks' that inspired me to create this book. You'll see a quick sketch (Karen's Cat Drawing) I attached below to capture the moment. also included the front cover of the book and a cat photo in the book.
What I say may sound strange but I live on forty acres in the forest (in Colorado.) I am surrounded by Nature. Every day, wild animals come to visit. They could be any of the following: wild turkeys, bears, elk, deer, mountain lions, bobcats, chipmunks, squirrels, rabbits, eagles, and more. Connecting to nature is so inspiring and keeps my crazy imagination in high gear! Plus, it is so quiet where I live that I can hear an eagle's wings flapping as it flies by (that is a real story!). The noise and lights in a big city are gone! I see beautiful creatures every day, and they don't have their eyes glued to mobile devices, lol! Life is in a slower lane, here. The sky is filled with stars that you can actually see, and I can't tell you how many times I've sat down to watch these stars and could hear my thoughts with ideas buzzing through my head, lol! (See the attached picture I took of my cat nose to nose with a deer.
The time has finally come for Sophia Petros and her naughty, best friend, a 5th Dimension butterfly fairy named Arabella, to go on their own ‘other-worldly’ journey together!
A year after Sophia had to be left behind while her sister, Shelby Petros, went on a trip to the 4th and 5th dimensions, Arabella is finally free to take Sophia for her own unique adventure. The girls travel to a parallel Earth reminiscent of the 1970s of Sophia’s world. In a quaint western town called Durango, Colorado, Sophia and Arabella befriend a group of ranch cowboys, including Colton – with whom Sophia feels an immediate connection. Arabella and Sophia soon discover just how this world differs from Sophia’s – animals talk, trains fly, and living spacecraft cruise the skies.
Meanwhile, near Durango, a portal opens at the legendary Chimney Rock, and something strange comes through. A hungry, injured, and frightened creature called a Berserker makes his way through the portal and flees towards Durango.
Netherworld Overlords from the other side of the portal, enlist a galactic bounty hunter to find this berserker creature. To complicate things further, these beings discover that a magic helmet – a possession of the war god, Mardukus – has disappeared at the same time!
Can Arabella, Sophia, and their new cowboy friends turn a bleak situation into something positive with their compassion and kindness? What is the mysterious connection that this berserker unknowingly has with the magical warrior helmet, and why are the Netherworld Overlords so desperate to get them both back? And can Arabella rescue the berserker from the Netherworld and return to Sophia?
