Meet The Talented

Chesterfield and Clayton Lifestyle Contributors

Marketing Assistant

Brittany says she used to daydream about love, travel, success and motherhood. Now, as she watches those dreams becoming reality, she says she's in total awe of God and beautiful blessings. She now spends most of her spare time with her family. When she has quiet moments, she's likely to be in the kitchen, baking something from scratch, scrubbing or polishing something or rearranging something. She also enjoys bringing new life to old furniture. However, she shares the most time and the BEST time with her pride and joy:  her 11-month-old. She says their daily adventures bring her total bliss and fulfill her divine purpose.

Karl is a family man, a US Army military police veteran, a commercial printing executive and a sports/architectural photographer. He grew up in Las Vegas Nevada but says he quickly found home to be St. Louis, given its plentiful culture and history. In Las Vegas, when something got old, he says they blew it up; St. Louis embraces history.

When she's not writing, she does mission work for her church, which involves traveling to disaster areas. She is active in Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.
