Karen Shepard lives and writes in the Pacific Northwest. Her interest in food and alternative lifestyles began in the 60s when the evolving consciousness about the food we eat and how it effects on our heath and the world we live in, was just beginning to take root. On a long acre min-farm in Pennsylvania with her husband and kids, she raised chickens, had a goat, and pursued cooperative gardening with friends. As part of the movement toward holistic medicine she studied spiritual midwifery, and experimented with recipes for things like Zucchini Canoes and Soy Bean Burritos until her children were big enough to form organized protests. She has launched two small business start-ups, Storyshirts and Good Dog Coffee, as well as taught and worked with at-risk kids at Campfire USA. Currently she enjoys hiking, horseback riding, and sharing the benefits of her experience with her three grandkids.
