Karen White was born and raised on the West Coast—but she always longed to broaden her horizons and live in Europe for a while. When the opportunity to study as an undergraduate student in southern England arose, Karen went for it . . . and she fell in love with Britain in the process. She moved to London a few years later to start life as a graduate student. She spent her spare time there exploring narrow, ancient streets in the City of London, London’s historic core; visiting numerous galleries and museums; and spending way too much money in fashionable boutiques and trendy markets. All of these activities were usually followed by a half-pint of bitter. She also met her British husband during this time, sealing her fate as a future Londoner.
Save for a two-year stint back in California, Karen has been based in England for nearly two decades now. She has worked as a copywriter and copyeditor for advertising and corporate communication companies in London, as well as a multinational British corporation. She is now a freelance copywriter, producing marketing material for companies on both sides of the Atlantic. She lives in London with her husband and two children.
