Karen Hagestad Cacy is a former Washington, D.C. cabinet-level speechwriter, and federal transportation lobbyist. She received her B.A. degree in Russian and a Middle East Studies minor from Portland State University, and has attended American University in Cairo and George Washington University in Washington, D.C.

She has lived in northern Japan; Cairo, Egypt; Washington, D.C.; Bend, Oregon; Aptos, California; and Portland, Oregon.

Her latest novel, Return to Ismailia derives from experiences in Cairo, Egypt in 1964. The characters are drawn from actual people but the story is fiction. The Middle East is a complicated region of the world. Often it is ill-served by the world’s distortions. As in this novel, the truth can be far closer to home and more personal.
