Goodreads asked Karen Jean Matsko Hood:

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

Karen Jean Matsko Hood Everything!! I love to read and write and often dream of having more time to be able to devote to reading and writing. The best benefit to me is that it is a job and a passion.

I am the mother of 16 kids and writing allows me to work around my family and be able to work anytime day or night at home. Some people think that is also a problem as you live in your work area but I appreciate that I can do that.

Also writing keeps me somewhat same in my often chaotic world of living as a wife and mother in a family of 18!. Karen Jean Matsko Hood
