Dr. Karen Hardy Nabs #6 Spot on Amazon’s Top 100 Best Sellers List for Risk Management

September 13, 2016, Washington, D.C.- When Karen Hardy secured a publishing opportunity with John Wiley & Sons to update her research report into a book, she thought she had reached utopia. But that was before she learned of the news that her book Enterprise Risk Management: A Guide for Government Professionals had nabbed the #6 spot on Amazon’s Top 100 Best Sellers List for Risk Management.

“I kept checking my daily status report, because it is good to measure your progress,” says Hardy. “The book was first ranked in the 1,000s in the beginning. To see it reach #6 is a dream come true!” she expressed.  “There are some really good writers and authors in this field. Very seasoned professionals” she said. “So, to make this milestone is not only a validation, but a personal achievement I have dreamed about.” Indeed, it is. Karen’s mother only made it to the 8th grade and her father was a truck driver. But they instilled a work ethic that she follows to this day.

Growing up with seven siblings, she and her younger brother and sister spent summers creating their own activities. “Back in that day, you made your own fun. There was no high tech yet. All we had was a blank sheet of paper, a pen, and a lot of time to use our imagination.” she recalls.  “Before I knew it, I was enrolling in college to major in Journalism years later. I’ve been writing ever since.”  Now that she has reached this dream, what is on the horizon you may ask? “I will keep writing,” she responded. “There is always something fascinating to write about.”
