Karen Lee from over the sea, met Barnacle Bill the sailor, They fell in love... Karen’s grandfather recited this unfinished rhyme to her as a little girl and this started her fascination with poetry and imagination. While the poem didn’t predict her future, Karen, and her younger brother Jeff, grew up by the ocean. She loves to swim in the salt water of any Cape Cod beach (except Wood Neck Beach in Falmouth – there may have been a horseshoe crab incident there involving screeching and lifeguards). After marrying non-barnacled (thank goodness) Rick Sabetta, Karen and Rick continued the poem “they fell in love and had a super cool, witty, stubborn, smart, kind kid named Kyle”. Being Kyle’s mom is Karen’s favorite thing on earth – so much so that she read all of the Harry Potter books aloud to him using a pretty pathetic, but entertaining, British accent. A graduate of the University of New Hampshire and University of Massachusetts Boston, Karen has been a seventh grade English teacher in Sandwich, Massachusetts for twenty three years. She loves reading, writing, discussing, and the fact that she occasionally needs to bring out her “bossiness” to keep things in the classroom flowing smoothly. Karen’s parents, John and Shirley Farrington, claim that her favorite saying as a toddler was “I do it myself”, so self-publishing is a natural way to share her work.
