Chief Adventuress

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.

A memoir based on

Flight Attendant Life

At twenty-three years old, Kara has no clue what to do with her life. Except, she knows what NOT to do. Yet, after college and amidst a crippled economy, endless job rejections, and a weird breakup, she accepts the one path she intended to avoid. Kara becomes a flight attendant. The result? A compelling story of success, identity, and belonging from the vantage point of a girl who desperately seeks an edge, but falls into the sky.

The book, invites you to travel with Kara and a cast of supporting characters as they navigate an intoxicating (and sometimes misunderstood) world of private jets and the aviation industry. A coming-of-age story that weaves together a conflict of success vs love; this book is a poignant tale of the search for who we are and what we are made for.
