Karen Ingalls is a retired RN, blogger, and author of three books. Her first book is an award-winning non-fiction about ovarian cancer and how to cope with this too often terminal disease. Novy’s Son is a novel based on her father’s journey making life-changing choices in the hopes that his father would be proud of him. Her third book is a historical fiction which won two awards for the story about the love affair between Augustus Saint-Gaudens, America’s premier sculptor and his model. It is based on fact. She is currently working on another novel which she hopes to have published in early 2019.


Outshine: An Ovarian Cancer Memoir. The word cancer creates fear in everyone yet it does not need to control one’s life. When I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, I realized how little I knew about it even though I was a nurse. As I began to educate myself I felt overwhelmed by the prevalent negativity of cancer. Rather than let cancer control my life, I focused on the blessings of life, rejoicing in each day, and finding peace in spirituality. I believe that the beauty of the soul, the real me and the real you, outshines the effects of cancer, surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. Disease is not an absolute, but a challenge to recover.
