The Author

Karyn McLaughlin Frist (KK) wrote her first book, LOVE U, DADDY BOY in 2006 .  It is a collection of stories written by women who love their fathers. BUT I WASHED MY HANDS was written to raise money for the Tennessee tornado relief fund. The subject of washing hands was a result of one of her grandson’s teachers, who inspired his class to sing while washing their hands and the result of the COVID-19 spread.
 She has 3 sons, 3 daughter in laws and will soon have 9 grandchildren. She lives in Nashville, Tennessee. Karyn is an avid golfer and gardener and enjoys entertaining her family and friends. You can follow her on butiwashedmyhands.com and on Instagram @but_i_washed_my_hands
