About the author
Karen Milano was born and raised in New Jersey, only 30 miles from New York City. "Rockefeller, the Christmas Tree Owl" emerged after she was captivated in December 2020, by a national news story unfolding about the surprise journey of a small saw-whet owl who was trapped in the Norway spruce chosen to be the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree. Karen has recently become a new grandmother just after retiring from a long career as a school social worker, working with special needs children. She has always had a very special place in her heart for young readers. All of that combined with an avid love for owls generated the synergy for creating her first children's book!
