Karen’s first book (shown above) won first place in Women’s Health and a finalist in Cancer for the National Indie Excellence Award 2013; and was a finalist in both Cancer and Self-Help categories for the Midwest Independent Publishers Award 2012. She is a IIC ovarian cancer survivor whose book, Outshine: An Ovarian Cancer Memoir, provides information about this often deadly disease, and gives inspiration to women and their families. Of those diagnosed 70% of will not survive 5 years, so proceeds from the book go to ovarian cancer research at Mayo Clinic and Florida Hospital.



About Novy’s Son:

From his early childhood, Murray Clark sought love and acceptance from his father, who was raised as the bastard child of a famous artist. Murray struggled with jealousy toward his younger brothers, and he questioned the morals and values of people around him.
As an adult, Matthew lived life his way, with years of lying, womanizing, and heavy drinking. Though married four times, did he ever find unconditional love? Would Murray’s high intelligence, his love for his two daughters, and his unique philosophy of life help him rise above his demons?

  1. I’m reading Novy’s Son now – it’s a great family memoir with some interesting relatives, including Karen’s great-aunt Helen, who opened several hospitals in San Diego in the 1930s, so obviously nursing and supporting the community runs in the blood. 🙂
    Thanks Jennifer for having us all over 😀
