Karen J. Wright is a photographer in Tucson, Ariz. whose work can be found at www.CreativeExposuresPhoto.com.

A native of Tucson, Karen has focused on the beautiful variety of plants and scenery that the Sonoran desert has to offer, in addition to bringing home images from world travels. Her first book, "Queen of the Night: A Rare Beauty", pairs her beautiful photographs with information about the life cycle of the elusive Peniocereus greggii, or Night Blooming Cereus. She has spent several long nights waiting and watching the "Queen" emerge from its dormant state into one of the most beautiful blossoms in the Sonoran desert.
