My name is Karen Barkan - born and raised in Israel. Yes, this small and famous country out there in the far Mediterranean. Not only that, I also had the privilege to live near the lowest place on this planet – next to the Dead Sea. A place surrounded by a wild mysterious desert, which had been an imagination fertilizer and a perfect inspiration for my writing. In 2006 I relocated to NJ and although I was breathing and living the desert my whole life, I got completely hooked by the green scenery of NJ, fell in love with the culture, and my heart was completely captured by the people here.So…besides writing and reading, I play the guitar, the piano…and I so want to add Sax, but not yet.My favorite sport is ski and roller hockey, and I’m also a big fan of the Flyers!I hold a Bachelor degree in education and Master degree in Human Resource Management.Did I mention I have spent my last 10 years in analyzing corporates information systems? But being an author in the past year, and writing “Lost In Time – Mirage” was the greatest adventure I have ever had, and it is my pleasure to share it with my readers.I hope you would enjoy Lost In Time – Mirage as much as I enjoyed writing it.
