Carmen Klassen is a new author with an old soul. After years of finding inspiration in the stories (both real and fictional) of women, she’s decided to share her own vision of amazing women. The Net Worth series is the first group of stories about women who come from harsh pasts and create brilliant futures.
Carmen comes from small-town British Columbia, Canada and has lived in California and Scotland before making her way back home. She enjoys scenic walks with her husband and rescue dog, a good cup of coffee, Mediterranean food, doing puzzles with her kids (when they are feeling especially generous with their time) and curling up with a good book on a rainy day (or a sunny day, or really any day).
