Karen Robertson is a children’s author who turned her book, Treasure Kai and the Lost Gold of Shark Island, into a book app for the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch.

 

Karen will discuss how she created the book app, how it’s going, and how she's creating a global brand for “Treasure Kai” using digital technology.

After launching her first book app, Karen wrote her first eBook, “Author’s Guide to Book Apps.”
