I always thought I’d rather be dead than paralysed. One slip, one moment, and everything changes. My first book is about recovering from the rock-climbing accident that paralysed me. It may start out a little harrowing, but it is really about embracing change and returning to adventures. As the book cover describes…
‘Karen’s adventure story takes you from the brink of death to handcycling the heights of the Himalayas…to the rusty knife of a Brazilian spirit surgeon. It is a story not just of climbing and courage, but one of inner journeying and spirituality. Out of Karen’s wound comes a strength to embrace the challenge and transform it into an opportunity to learn and grow.’
“Karen’s captivating story shine a bright light on the meaning of challenge, and on the limitless capabilities of the human sprit.”Sir Ranulph Fiennes.
“Modest and thoughtful, Karen is a highly sought after and successful speaker, whose stories inspire all those who take time to reflect on what it took to achieve them.”Joe Simpson, climber and author of Touching the Void.
