Karen Rutherford was born in Memphis, Tennessee, but spent most of her formative years in Atlanta, Georgia, where she had several jobs most of which were related to corporate training.

She currently lives in Indianapolis, Indiana, and spends most of her time working as a contract and freelance technical writer. She has published several articles in trade magazines and written her fair share of copy for professional and university Websites along the way.

Her first book, Diary of a Post-Single Mom, is the result of a tough transition through the years her only son was leaving home for his own life. She hopes it is a comfort for other single mothers experiencing the same trauma.

She is now working on her next book and attempting to blog at www.ka
