Thank you so much for writing! I have good news and bad news.
The good news is that you’ve reached Karen Hawkins. The bad news is that I’m not the Karen Hawkins you’re looking for.
I don’t write romance novels.
I don’t live in North Carolina, London, Arkansas, or Arizona.
I’m not buying or selling a home in any of those places.
I don’t teach.
I don’t coach.
I don’t have school-age children.
My non-existent school-age children, thankfully, don’t require frequent trips to the principal’s office and subsequent summons for me.
I don’t attend your church, and I won’t be choosing this Sunday’s hymns or assembling the bulletin.
I didn’t set up that costume jewelry shop account.
And while I’m sure I’d love to see Matilda the Musical in California, I won’t be able to use the tickets you emailed.
Thank you for updating your address book accordingly.
