Hi! Thanks for visiting my website. I do things with words. I'm a reporter/journalist, editor and storyteller. I've written and edited for newspapers, magazine and websites, spending 12 years at the Ventura County Star in Southern California as an assistant entertainment editor and multimedia journalist. Before then I was a reporter and editor at L.A. Parent magazine. My specialty is writing about the arts, culture and lifestyle, but I've covered everything. I edit anything from academic papers to books and websites. I graduated from Mount Saint Mary's College in Los Angeles, California, and I've attended Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism. I love poetry, Harry Potter, Winnie-the-Pooh, ballerina roses and the band U2. Send me an email at karenlindell2@gmail.com.
