Biography

Windela Kilmer was born on 26 May 1947 in Holland. She grew up with her brothers, while she dreamed about visiting the exotic places that read in their books.

She met in Amsterdam a globetrotting U.S.American, who asked her to marry him in Rome, Italy and they tied the knot in a ten-minute ceremony in Kenya. After Kenya they lived in the States for a while, then four years in Ghana, West Africa where not only their first daughter was born but her first Mills & Boon romance as well. Karen's husband's work as a development economist has taken them to several other countries. They lived in Indonesia, in Ramallah, the West Bank, and then again in Ghana.

They now live in Armenia, which lies east of Turkey and north of Iran. They have three grown kids, who live in the States.
