Karen Wilsonís love of journalism began early, when she was chosen to write a special business section for a local newspaper while still in high school. Since then, she has worked for two newspapers and written a column for an east coast horsemenís monthly. 

She is a current member of the American Quarter Horse Association and its Horseback Riding Program and a past member of the Midwest Dressage Association. She owns two Quarter Horses, has shown in both hunt seat and dressage, and is an avid trail rider. 

The author lives on a small farm in southeastern Michigan with her husband, horses and ten cats. In addition to writing, she also enjoys watercolor painting and cross-country skiing. She works for a law firm in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. 


In our troubled times, For Just Claws is a light-hearted escape, pulling us into a world where neighborhoods are still a network of friends that genuinely care about each other. For Just Claws hints at the plight of senior citizens who feel lonely and unwanted, and shows us the value of a true friendship. 

It also touches upon current issues, such as anti-vivisection in our classrooms and both sides of the larger issue of gun control. But most importantly, For Just Claws reminds us not to take ourselves too seriously.
