A memoir based on

Flight Attendant Life

Have you asked yourself, “What am I made for? Why am I here?” If so, you are not alone. From my years in aviation, I discovered that we search the world for our purpose and place, and yet, where we belong and our very identities are rooted much closer to ‘home.’ I’ve wanted to write THE BOOK for over fifteen years—something deep fueled the vision. YOU fueled the story. 

First, I’ve written this book for the flight attendant and aviation community. You have brought me connection and joy and friendship. THE BOOK is a tribute to your awesomeness. Second, I once was in a place so dark and desperate that I didn’t believe there was sunshine above the clouds. I no longer cared to keep going. That place was a destination many people find themselves in at some point, made more challenging when everyone else around you and online seems far from ‘stuck.’ This book speaks to those who feel stuck and struggle to keep faith and hope alive. Third, I wrote THE BOOK for the curious soul who dreams of more. The curious soul who wants to know what aviation is like inside and out. This book is a spiritual, travel, and aviation odyssey that invites you to become all you are made for.

Hello, I’m K. J. Watts, but my friends call me Kara. I fell into the sky and have worked as International cabin crew, on private jets as a corporate flight attendant, and earned an FAA Private Pilot Certificate. Over a decade ago, I started this blog, which developed into a love for writing and a debut memoir based on Flight Attendant Life. A California native, I now live in Sydney, Australia, where I enjoy spending time with my husband, writing, and surfing.
