author/historian, Karen R. Thompson, a seventh generation Texan,
is a native Austinite. Her interest in the history of Round Rock
began when she married eighth generation Texan David Thompson
and moved to the Round Rock area.
Growing up in the Capital city, where her grandfather
Charles P. Luck had been one of the early photographers (1890s
- 1920s), it was natural to enjoy history. She has been researching
and writing history since writing her biography A
Texas Girl in the fifth grade at Casis Elementary
School in Austin.
Karen welcomes you to roundrockbooks.com and
