Kari Neumeyer thinks Groucho Marx was onto something when he said, "Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read."
Kari's name rhymes with safari. She has a master's degree in journalism from Northwestern University's Medill School and has worked for news outlets in Washington state and the Czech Republic.
She grew up in Los Angeles and graduated from the University of Southern California's School of Cinema-Television.
Now she lives in Bellingham, Washington, with her beau, Rob, and their dog family.
In her spare time, she volunteers teaching an adaptive martial arts class to adults with developmental disabilities at the Max Higbee Center, fostering a love of creative writing to Whatcom Young Writers, and walking shelter dogs at the Humane Society of Skagit Valley.
She blogs about dogs at KariNeumeyer.com.
