Karen Cecil Smith

An Old Salem Christmas, 1840, is Karen Cecil Smith’s first children’s book. While living in Winston-Salem and attending Salem College, she became interested in Moravian history. It was the beauty and authenticity of Old Salem Museums and Gardens, which surround the college campus, that inspired her to write An Old Salem Christmas, 1840.

Karen is the author of Orlean Puckett: The Life of a Mountain Midwife, 1844-1939 and of many published articles, stories, and poems. She lives on a farm outside of High Point, North Carolina.
