Karen S. Bell continues to be in awe of the magical and wondrous phenomenon called life. As an observer and obvious participant in feminine values and approach to our human challenges, she brings this perspective to her work. Fascinated by the mysteries of the unseen forces that perhaps play a role in guiding our choices, she continues to search for answers in the mundane as well as in the cosmic forces that surround us. She is working on her third novel and lives in Ponte Vedra, Fl. with her husband and their two furry kids.

2020 the year we all went nuts

As I sit in my house day after day, I’ve learned to only watch and hour or so of the news. However, I check twitter more frequently and I’ve come to learn some disturbing truths. All of humanity is off the rails. COVID 19 has turned us all into blobs of hate or stupidity. If we had achieved a higher-self version of ourselves previous to this mental apocalypse, it’s gone. Being shut away with only

This was the authors attempt at clearing her name. Very detailed info on her role in inaugural events where very large sums of money was filched. Shocked that an extremely accomplishment and privileged woman would be so in awe of Melan

Loose ends

Not sure how this book really ends. The book ends but the story seems incomplete so very disappointing. The plot was a bit sophomoric and trite. The writing pedantic. Held my interest but the ending or lack thereof because of giant plot hol

Albert Einstein
“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”
Albert Einstein

Gregory David Roberts
“A man has to find a good woman, and when he finds her he has to win her love. then he has to earn her respect. then he has to cherish her trust. and then he has to, like, go on doing that for as long as they live. Until they both die. That's what it's all about. That's the most important thing in the world. That's what a man is, Yaar. A man is truly a man when he wins the love of a good woman, earns her respect, and keeps her trust. Until you do that, you're not a man.”
Gregory David Roberts, Shantaram

Gregory David Roberts
“One of the reasons why we crave love, and seek it so desperately, is that love is the only cure for loneliness, and shame, and sorrow. But some feelings sink so deep into the heart that only loneliness can help you find them again. Some truths about yourself are so painful that only shame can help you live with them. And some things are just so sad that only your soul can do the crying for you.”
Gregory David Roberts, Shantaram

Karen Countdown to my publisher closing. Bummer! I will take over as publisher but the book will be unavailable for a while. That's life, oh well.
