Karen Lundgren is a witch, a mother, and a programmer who lives in Denver, Colorado. She has a bachelor's degree in Religious Studies from the University of New Mexico.
With the linguistic and editing help of her husband, Chad Lundgren, she created a book called "A Concise Guide to the Tarot: In Vivid Color". It features the Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot and the meanings from "The Pictorial Key to the Tarot", the original organization of which was difficult to use because the meanings were scattered in different places in the book, and the original wording contained lots of now archaic language. Karen digitally recolored the cards in a more colorful style than the original. She reorganized meanings ascribed to the cards by Arthur Edward Waite and rewrote them to use modern language.
Karen Lundgren is the author and programmer of the Queen of Tarot website, which covers the history of tarot cards and uses of tarot cards. It also offers tarot flash cards, tarot solitaire, and free tarot readings.
She is also the programmer of a number of open-source Ruby Gems, which are software designed to help other programmers build web functionality more quickly. Karen Lundgren's gems can be found at GemVein.com.
Karen enjoys making concoctions with essential oils, herbs, and crystals. She loves crafts, especially the textile arts.
