Kara B. Wilson
From a box to a building, there's a story wherever you look. Kara B. Wilson has written five picture books and four stage plays for youth. She's an active member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) and the critique group Pen Ultimate.
A former educator, Kara earned an M.Ed and a B.A. in Literature from the University of California, Santa Barbara. She's worn a variety of hats: theater director, nonprofit program manager, consultant, and digital marketing strategist. She's also a military spouse and a mom to a very chatty, hilarious toddler.
She loves reading, traveling, and exploring the Pacific Northwest's misty trails and beaches with her family.
