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.

Those of us who have faced, or are facing, the diagnosis of ovarian cancer we often talk about "winning the battle," "fighting the good fight," or "warrior woman" and other such warrior phrases.

              **Our healthy white cells try to kill the cancer cells.

              **Some cancer cells attempt to "hide" from the chemotherapy or radiation.

              **We choose to eat or avoid certain foods giving us strength or ammunition.

              **We armor ourselves with positive thinking, meditation, and humor.

              **Some of us will win battles, but others will unfortunately lose the war.

              **Research and doctors learn something from every case.
              **Those before me have contributed to the health of today's woman.

              EVERY TUESDAY
                            AND SHARE ABOUT
                                            OVARIAN CANCER

My humble thanks to the men and women who have served, and those who are currently our national warriors.

Like to color teal. Awareness is very necessary for ovarian cancer.

Teal is the color! I try to wear my pins and bracelets everyday which give opportunities for conversation and information.
