A member of The Chalice Well, Rosslyn Chapel, Friends of the Bodleian Library, Obod, Gatekeeper Pilgrimage Trust(UK),and the American Academy of Religion, Dr Ralls has served as Historical Advisor and medieval consultant for film, travel, and heritage-related organizations and projects, and also completed a specialist Medieval and Renaissance Art History course at the Victoria and Albert (V&A) Museum (London, 2004) and a two-year Interfaith spirituality course (London, 1999).

She enjoys travel,nature walks/hiking, stargazing,and visiting ancient, historical and archaeological sites. She has a Facebook Author page and the website is Whatever their chosen path or wherever they are from in the world, many today tell me they're on a quest. History, symbolism, places, and folklore continue to fascinate; people say visiting many historical places - pagan, Christian, or otherwise - often greatly inspires, enlightens or assists them. As a medieval historian, I write my books for *all* of you, as we mutually step back in time, exploring key medieval subjects and their associated history, symbolism, folklore, unique wonders, and local traditions. Cross the threshold! Best wishes and enjoy the journey, Karen Ralls BIO:
