Karen A Szklany

My name is Karen A. Szklany and I love stories about the sea and seafaring life. I also love walking labyrinths, writing, music, mulitmedia art, culinary arts, gardening, dancing and sailing. When I'm not writing, I work as a Life Transformation Coach who uses the labyrinth path as a tool for supporting my clients' creative process. My approach creates the space for my clients to empower themselves to create maginificently magical lives filled with their hearts' desires, informed by their most deeply held chosen values.

My family ties are rooted in the historic town of Sleepy Hollow, NY. My B.A. is in Psychology from Marist College (1986) and my M.Ed. in Elementary Education is from the University of Massachusetts at Boston (1996). I've also lived in Ireland and California before settling in New England. In June 2009, my first poetry chapbook was published, titled Running with the Wings of the Beast. From that, I was the feature poet at the Stone Soup Poetry open mic in Cambrige, MA one June night in 2009. In June 2020 I published my 2nd book of poetry, titled "Dancing in Beauty's Embrace."

From November of 2009 until July of 2010, I wrote a book titled The Complete Guide to Growing Your Own Fruits and Berries: Everything You Need to Know Explained Simply, which can be purchased via my Amazon Author's Page. If you would like to read more about my process of writing the book, please visit my hub titled "The Adventure Called 'Writing a Book.'"
