As an only child, Karen Heenan learned early that boredom was the enemy. Shortly after she discovered perpetual motion, and has rarely been seen holding still since.

She lives in Lansdowne, PA, just outside Philadelphia, where she grows much of her own food and makes her own clothes. She is accompanied on her quest for self-sufficiency by a very patient husband and an ever-changing number of cats.

One constant: she is always writing her next book.

Pre-Orders Available

I just found out this afternoon that pre-orders for the e-book version of Songbird are available NOW, with the paperback edition coming soon.

I thought it was feeling more real, but now it really feels real. When you see something you've written on Amazon, it must exist, right?
