Occasionally, she & Sam Warner record The Tardis Tapes, a review show for the main range of the Big Finish Audio Adventures of Doctor Who – a Listen to it on iTunes, or podbean.

One thought on “About

  1. Hello, Karen. My name is Kim and I found your name when I purchased a book from a friend’s daughter whose name is Christine Melaas. She wrote a book called Giraffes in Outer Space and you illustrated it. I was wondering if you could illustrate a short story my husband and I wrote called The Legend of Maple Syrup. I look forward to hearing from you! Thank you!
