About the Author

Karen Timberlake is Professor Emerita of chemistry at Los Angeles Valley College, where she taught chemistry for allied health and preparatory chemistry for 36 years. She received her bachelor’s degree in chemistry from the University of Washington and her master’s degree in biochemistry from the University of California at Los Angeles.

Professor Timberlake has been writing chemistry textbooks for 33 years. During that time, her name has become associated with the strategic use of pedagogical tools that promote student success in chemistry and the application of chemistry to real-life situations. More than one million students have learned chemistry using texts, laboratory manuals, and study guides written by Karen Timberlake. In addition to General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry: Structures of Life, Third Edition, she is also the author of Basic Chemistry, second edition, and Chemistry: An Introduction to General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry, tenth edition with the accompanying Study Guide, Selected Solutions Manual, Laboratory Manual, and Essential Laboratory Manual.

Professor Timberlake belongs to numerous science and educational organizations including the American Chemical Society (ACS) and the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA). She was the Western Regional Winner of Excellence in College Chemistry Teaching Award given by the Chemical Manufacturers Association. In 2004, she received the McGuffey Award in Physical Sciences from the Text and Academic Authors Association for her textbook Chemistry: An Introduction to General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry, eight edition, which has demonstrated excellence over time. In 2006, she received the Textbook excellence award for the first edition of Basic Chemistry.
