I have the privilege of sharing author Karen Magill’s inspirational true-life story, On The Right Side, My Story of Survival and Success. I am excited now that this great book has been released on Amazon but also pleased to announce her Facebook Launch Party that is taking place TODAY, Wednesday March 5th at 4 pm -6 pm PST.
Please join in on the festivities with a chance to win prizes and play some fun “uplifting” games.
What if you woke one day to find yourself paralysed on one side of your body?
That’s what happened to Karen Magill on June 5, 2000. Nine days later she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and just over three months after that, she had to leave the best job she had ever had. Ms. Magill started on a frightening, confusing journey that was her life now.
Then something interesting happened. Once Karen began adjusting to her new circumstances, coming to terms with the fact that her former life had vanished, she realized that the MS was a gift. Her eyes opened to the possibilities around her.
On The Right Side, My Story of Survival and Success looks at Ms. Magill’s life with MS and the factors in life, which influence her. This isn’t a how to book on living well with chronic illness, but rather a touching, opinionated, sometimes humorous story on how one person has gone from partial paralysis to jumping to touch low hanging tree leaves.
As long as we aren’t six feet under, we are on the right side and anything is possible. That’s the philosophy Ms. Magill lives by and hopes that readers will come to realize that they too can overcome hardships and live good lives.
Karen Magill believes that anything is possible. When she writes fiction, Karen likes to treat the paranormal as an everyday occurrence because she believes that these attributes are within us all.Forced to leave the workforce in 2000 by the onslaught of MS, Karen saw this as an opportunity to explore her lifelong desire to write. Initially she explored other areas of writing before deciding that her future lay with creating novels.
To date, Ms. Magill is the author of three published paranormal novels, including the award winning The Bond, A Paranormal Love Story. In March of 2014, she will publish her first non-fiction book, an inspirational story of her journey – so far – with multiple sclerosis. It is entitled On The Right Side, My Story of Survival and Success. Her fourth paranormal novel, A Little Poison – the sequel to Missing Flowers – should be out sometime in 2014.
Karen lives in an eclectic area of Vancouver Canada and draws inspiration from the history and stories around her.
