My friend and fellow author John Vonhof interviewed me last week on my 40+ year writing career. I really enjoyed answering his pointed questions, reflecting on my books and how they’ve evolved over the years, and what I’ve learned in the process.

If you have want to write or are already writing you might enjoy listening to the podcast and reading the notes from the interview. Here’s the link:

Thank you, John! It was a pleasure.

I also encourage anyone who wants to explore writing for fun, for personal insight, or for publication to hop on the web and find an online writing course. And if I can answer any questions you might have about writing, please contact me.




Thank you, John! — 9 Comments

  1. I like your photo, Karen, exquisite, cute, vibrant, healthy, energetic and beautiful! Very impressive interview. And thanks for the recommendation of Marjorie Holmes’ book on writing. I just got one on amazon. It’s good to see you again. Jing

    • I appreciate your kind comments, Jing. Glad you were able to get the book I recommended. It’s one of my favorites.

  2. Thanks for your inspiring interview, Karen. Loved the little details, like your office set up, your paperless filing system, and your best writing time. Writing what you live confirmed to me that passions naturally change and that’s a good thing. What a blessing to look back and remember the prophetic words spoken by your teacher and your mother. Thank you for sharing all these things.

    • Thank you, Nancy, for taking a moment to listen to the audio and for noting all the details. I hope they were helpful to you.

  3. Ms. O’connor, not only was this interview helpful and very encouraging to me, but your no bologna speech it was refreshing. Your chief interest in aiding people along who want to write really comes through. Your son directed me here when I expressed an interest in writing ad copy. I see where he gets his skills and ethics now. Thank you for presenting all of this for guys like me. Blessings on you and your whole family.



    PS: Jim is a gem. I’m positive you are a very proud mom!

    • Chris, thanks for taking the time to comment and to appreciate the writing advice on my podcast. And I also thank you for complimenting my son. I agree. He is a ‘gem.’
