About the author

 Karen Jean Matsko Hood began writing as a shy author, but has now developed a voice all her own.  Her writing always exhibits a unique story as well as a voice of empathy and purpose.  Hood’s writing is strong-minded.  She is a meticulous wordsmith and combines stories with compassion.  Hood has always loved children and is devoted to their needs.  It is only natural that she would channel her efforts to include children’s book and poetry.

Hood reminds us of the importance of our links with nature and environment in our daily lives.  Her writing carries the urgency and outrage with areas of current social injustice and inequality.  The recurring theme in Hood’s work is to provide a voice for those whose struggles cannot be heard.  Hood’s writing brings poignancy to the most hopeless of situations.  She is romantic in her vision for a quest for dignity and social justice.

Hood also writes about personal and spiritual themes.  She is passionate both as a feminist and as an active children’s rights advocate.  Hood also works to encourage literacy for all ages.  Her blend of traditionalism and modernism brings a current freshness and uniqueness to her own poetic voice.  She is versatile in her writing style and is able to incorporate a wide range of themes and topics. Her poems have been published in a myriad of magazines and publications.

Karen was born and raised in Great Falls, Montana. In May 2001, she completed her Master’s Degree in Pastoral Ministry at Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington. Hood is working on research projects to complete her Ph.D. in Leadership Studies at Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington.

She resides in Spokane, Washington, along with her husband, many of her sixteen children, and foster children. Her hobbies include cooking, baking, collecting, photography, indoor and outdoor gardening, farming, and the cultivation of unusual flowering plants and orchids.
