Karen Treanor was born in New England, one of the thousands of descendants of Isaac Stearns of Watertown, which relates her to all manner of folk, including Calvin Coolidge, T S Eliot, Henry David Thoreau’s roommate at Harvard, and Mercy Adams who was “carried off to Canada by the Indians” in 1694.  Karen spent nearly a decade working in Southern Africa with her husband and then settled in Western Australia for many years.  In 2014 she moved for what she says is the final time to Tasmania, Australia’s smallest state, which hangs like a pearl from the bosom of mainland Australia.  “It looks a great deal like New England, with rocky coasts and ancient green hills, and has the same sort of resilient and wryly humorous people,” she says.  Karen has been contributing to for several decades and enjoys its camaraderie of storytellers and writers.
