Karen Romano Young was frequently wet during her early years. Despite not actually having webbed feet, she spent much of her nonschool time up to her knees in the Atlantic, Long Island Sound, or the Mill River in her hometown of Fairfield, Connecticut. Although Karen had little formal science education before high school, she learned on her feet, and has continued to do so through a career that includes scientific research expeditions, writing, and illustrating.
Karen has dived to the bottom of the Pacific Ocean in a tiny submarine, crunched through Arctic ice in an icebreaker, and visited labs, museum workshops, and research institutions across the U.S. in order to write and draw about science -- especially ocean science. She is the author of nearly 30 books for children, has illustrated several of these, and is the creator of Humanimal Doodles, a science comic for kids. Her fiction work includes the award-winning novel The Beetle and Me and the celebrated graphic novel Doodlebug.
Karen’s recent work includes Humanimal Doodle-style picture books for Harper Big Cat, such as Watching Whales, and Stuck in the Middle (Of Middle School), a sequel to Doodlebug. Right now she’s working on the photo shoot of a new National Geographic.

With such hits as ABC’s “Scandal”, the vastly successful “The Butler” and the highly anticipated “12 Year A Slave”, African-Americans are making their mark and causing a stir in Hollywood more now, than ever. Although Tinseltown is featuring a greater emphasis on our stories and talent, what stereotypes are these projects leaving in their wake? As a result of our increasing presence in film, TV and stage, what positive and negative aspects are being enhanced about the African-American community? Tune in Wednesday, October 30 at 9p EST, as we discuss how recent successes in Black Hollywood have affected the overall image of Black America.
The multi-talented author, photographer and director, Teresa Dowell-Vest, as well as award-winning actor and singer, Corey Reynolds, will be weighing in as we debate “The State of Black Hollywood.
