Who is this woman?

My name is Karen Jessop, paralegal, wife, laundress and cat mom.  When I’m not working at my in-house paralegal job on the Penninsula, I’m home watching TV or reading voraciously.

I write because I like the tap-tapping sound of typing on the keyboard.  Also it’s the only thing that can lure my soul from the dementors of the corporate world.  I started this blog after my husband Jerry bought me the domain and a new laptop.  It was his way of saying “I love you.  I believe in you.  Now get out of my hair.”

I hope you enjoy reading what I have to say and welcome your comments.  If you would like to contact me direct, please send an email to theladyjessop at gmail dot com.

    Hi Karen,
    Although you don’t know me. Your father Harlan, my first cousin gave me your Blog address and I have been
    reading them for a long time. I love how you write and I enjoy reading them.
    Your father called my brother & I to meet him at the Emerson Hotel in NJ for dinner four years ago. First time
    we met in probably forty years. I would say after all these years it was great to know him and he shared stories
    about our grandma. Grandma always made a swiss apple pie which I named “Grandma’s Swiss Apple pie”.
    Delicious I must say. Now I have your grandma’s recipe for swiss bread. Its nice to share family recipes.
    Makes you feel warm and cozy.
    I hope to hear from you Karen. It would be very nice.
    Your cousin

      Hi Susan!

      So glad you found my new website! I’m sure I will have plenty of stories about my grandma (Aunt Hetty to you) to put up here, and maybe even a few about Aunt Martha. I will send you a private email soon!

    I read your post regarding the Livermore kidnapping quarry being close to where you grew up.

    Is that quarry still there ? I enjoy seeing places of historical significance…. even if someone might consider it morbid. Its still history. I’m also curious if the defendants father / family still own that quarry (probably sold out due to the publicity).

    Contact me, please.

    My curiosity got the best of me and I needed to know who the person was behind such insightful comments on my blog. Whonwas the person with whom it seems I have something in common? I read your blog and I’m hooked. You’re a great writer and the fact that you want to wire a book is not surprising after reading these posts. I hope you follow through on your dream. However, I hope you continue writing this blog, I feel like I need to know you and Jerry better.

    Thank you for your comments on my blog. Please continue to keep me on my toes. I love your comments.
