Not Always Happy the book!

Right about the time my mom’s health took a nose dive, I got a book contract. Life has contradictions. It is the good and the bad and the in-between.

I thank my agent, Edite Kroll, my publisher, Central Recovery Press and my editor, Janet Ottenweller for seeing the beauty in a story I have been sharing since 2010. Not Always Happy : An Unusual Parenting Journey will be published in May, 2017.

I thank my husband Ward for supporting my writing. Being a partner of a writer means living with a person possessed. Fortunately for me, he likes that.

I thank my faithful readers for giving me the confidence to believe ours is a story worth telling.

Mostly– I thank our son, Thorin, for being the best adventure ever and for having a delightful sense of humor. Having a child with Down syndrome is not a issue, but having a humorless child would be unbearable for me.

I was going to wait closer to publication to announce my news but I realized yesterday when I submitted five chapters (with more to follow), I am indeed writing a book.

I look forward to sharing more about all of that. XXOO, Kari

  1. Congrats!!!! I am so happy and excited for you!!!!!! Can’t wait to read it and get our copy!!!!!! Maggie still wants a “hangout” with Thorin!!!!!

  2. Congratulations! Getting paid must just be the icing on the cake. You willingly share your love and experiences. Now you are receiving the conventional expression of a job well done. However you see that in Thorin’s smile for free every day. Happy for you!

  3. I’m so glad to hear that news !!! I can’t wait to read your book, hoping that I’ll be able to receive it in France. My thoughts are with you in this long creating process ;-)
