Karen Mabry Rice, a native Oklahoman from Altus, currently resides in southern Illinois. For thirteen years she was primarily a stay at home mom. For eighteen years after that she was a buyer at an art and engineering business in Oklahoma City and managed to rear four teenagers alone.
Returning to college in middle age, she received a BA in anthropology, emphasis archaeology, from the University of Oklahoma and an MA in anthropology, emphasis archaeology, with honors, from Northern Arizona University. She worked at Southern Illinois University for seven years before retiring. She has three adult children and three grandchildren.
Karen has enjoyed writing from an early age. While working, both in business and archaeology, she did a lot of technical writing. Now she prefers to focus on novels, short stories, and poetry.
Her first novel, a mystery called Ghost Walk, is set in southwestern Oklahoma and has been accepted for publication by 4RV Publishing.
