Karna Converse has written everything from technical documentation and price proposals to newsletter articles, devotionals, personal profiles and essays. Her essays have been published in a variety of regional and national publications, including The Christian Science Monitor, Notre Dame Magazine, the Cup of Comfort and Chicken Soup anthologies, Our Iowa, and on Iowa Public Radio.
Now, she is happiest when juxtaposing ancestral heritage with worldwide events of the time period and is dedicated to passing her findings on to the next generation–her grandchildren. She and her husband live in Des Moines, Iowa; they share a love of books, bicycling, and babysitting. Karna is a former blog editor, senior editor, managing editor, and editor-in-chief of Literary Mama—and is especially grateful to have met so many others who, like her, are not afraid to use an em dash or a semicolon.
