Karen E. Baker lives just outside of Portland, Oregon with her wife Nancy.  She is a U.S. Navy veteran who served in Operation Desert Shield/Desert Storm (the first Gulf War) on the hospital ship USNS Mercy.  Hailing from the social customs taught in the deep south and reinforced by her years of military service, Karen has never dropped the courtesy of saying “sir” or “ma’am.”  This sometimes gets her into trouble with her sister for calling her “Ma’am.”  These days when not rock hounding for semi-precious beauties, she fills her time writing and chasing Nancy around their home to stay in shape.
