I’m Karalee, and in 2015, I ran away from home. This blog holds the tales of my life-in-progress.
Before I ran away, I was in the throes of a long, semi-respectable career in marketing and communications, with some teaching of college on the side. I squeezed in the kind of writing I wanted to do, the creative sort, when I could. Sometimes, I even managed to have more than me read/see my efforts. I was published (Globe and Mail), produced a one-off a radio feature (CBC Outfront), and had my face on TV a couple of times (CTV, Women’s Channel).
Now in my third life do-over, I’ve abandoned reason and logic (with the full backing of my three adult sons), to put my writing dreams at the forefront, whilst I sort out the who, what and wheres of life in this mama-ran-away-from-home epoch. And yay, I am now well into writing a book about the entire beautiful mess. I am also almost done my MFA, and sure, keeping food on the table remains an ongoing challenge, but hey, there are worse things to fret about.
Thanks for reading my blog and maybe meet you someday.
