Author Bio

Author – Karen A. Doherty


56. Married-to a wonderful woman. One grown son. Home is a Craftsman bungalow on the North Fork of Long Island.

Former staff member and volunteer leader in the Sierra Club. Worked on wilderness and Native land rights in Alaska; and urban environmental issues in New York.

Now a marketing executive for a stationery importer. Not only is it the best paper in the world for writing, it is also manufactured with great care for the forests, water and the people who live near them.

I enjoy kayaking, fishing, swimming, sailing, hunting and just being out on the land—woods, beach and my backyard.

I feel most at home spiritually out on the water. If not, a quiet church. The solitude is reassuring. I know I am home because I feel complete.

Ever since my Alaska days, nature, especially wilderness, has helped me feel closer to God.
