KAREN HONNOR

Author & Poet - It's all about playing with words.

WRITE FROM THE HEART...

I have always had a passion to write. Mostly, fitting poetry and script writing in around my day job in the past, now I have closed my classroom door and I have the freedom to focus on my writing, in whatever form it takes. Writing is a powerful way to make connections with others and to start a conversation.
I find inspiration from my everyday and write with honesty and a touch of humor about the subjects that effect us all, building my self-confidence as I go. My books and blog continue to strike a chord with readers and I am learning and growing as I write my way through midlife.

FINDING MY WAY

May 26, 2019

This book marks my first steps as an author. Join me through moments of angst to zen as this account of personal discovery depicts my journey through motherhood, midlife and menopause. This commentary on life as a middle-aged woman in the 21st century reflects upon the many roles I juggle as a wife, mother and career woman whilst exploring my self-confidence and mental health issues. I invite you to share in this 'no holds barred' look at modern life and perhaps, like me, find a little comfort and some sass in your steps along the way.
