In November 2020, Karen self-published her first book, We Are Unbreakable: Raw, Real Stories of Resilience from Women in Nova Scotia in 2020. The book is a collection of authentic and inspiring stories about the unprecedented year of 2020 written by 22 incredible women who call Nova Scotia home. In these stories you will find examples of struggle, strength, togetherness and, mostly, of resilience as these remarkable women, from many different age groups and walks of life, share their experiences of living, working, running businesses and parenting through a global pandemic, along with a year of horrific tragedies that rocked the entire province of Nova Scotia in so many ways. We Are Unbreakable was an Amazon category best-seller for over 6 months and, in addition to being available through Amazon, it is currently being sold at Indigo-Chapters stores in Atlantic Canada and online at Target and Barnes and Noble. A portion of the proceeds from this book will establish an education fund for women in rural Nova Scotia.
