About Me

My journey as a writer began as a child. I wrote poems and short stories which were my way of dealing with various life changing events. I am a member of Rave Reviews Book Club. Follow me on Twitter @KIngallsAuthor www.facebook.com/KarenIngalls, and you can find my books at www.amazon.com. My first book is Outshine: An Ovarian Cancer Memoir which received two awards. All proceeds are donated to gynecologic cancer research. My second book is a novel Novy's Son, about one man's attempt to find love and acceptance from his father. This is an all too common problem in our society. My third book, Davida: Model and Mistress of Augustus Saint-Gaudens is about the love affair between this great American sculptor and his model.

Joyful news as I got another clean bill of health from the oncologist. He is encouraged that I have been free of any relapse even though my ovarian cancer cell was Malignant Mixed Mullerian Tumor (mmmt), which is an aggressive sarcoma.
I continue to work on my book Outshine: An Ovarian Cancer Memoir, which is now in the hands of the book designer. I hope to educate and inspire women and their partners about the signs, tests, and treatments for this cancer. There is so little information out there so we need to speak out.
My journey with cancer has been as much a spiritual one as it was physical and emotional. God became an important part of my life when I was a teenager, and I have not lost sight of Him since. I cannot imagine going through the challenge of any cancer without a strong belief and trust in God. I have leaned on His shoulders many times.
I welcome you to share your story about ovarian cancer, because we can all learn from AND be supportive of each other. God bless you.
