About the author

Karen Ann Dell

I was born and raised in a suburb of Philadelphia, where I survived twelve years of parochial school. After a stint at Penn State, I attended nursing school in Philadelphia, got my diploma and worked in one of the earliest Shock/Trauma units. Then I was off to Baltimore and a few years as an OR nurse before I decided anesthesia was where I belonged. I trained at Johns Hopkins, and have happily practiced my profession - Nurse Anesthesia - for the past forty years. So you see, I'm no spring chicken.
About twenty-five years ago I moved to Orlando and I eventually found my way to Melbourne, a lovely town on Florida's Space Coast. I have been rescued by foue cats who have agreed to keep me company in exchange for food and cuddles.
Now that I have retired from the practice of anesthesia, the stories and characters I have been keeping under my scrub cap lo these many years are clamoring to be free. I've decided to humor them in the hopes they will entertain you, dear reader.
I also create the occassional cover for self-published e-books, am an active member here at STAR, and have served as treasurer on the board.
In whatever spare time I have left, I make jewelry. One can never have too much bling, in my humble opinion.
