AboutKaren Hamon is a wife, mother, fitness instructor and special-needs teaching assistant in the city of North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. However, her more recent accomplishments would include writer and author. Her first book, an awarding winning memoir called Looking for Normal, tells the true story of her parents who both grew up in dysfunctional homes during the depression era. It deals with mental health issues, addiction and raising a healthy happy family against all odds. With over sixty reviews on Amazon, Good Reads and Indigo, the common theme is that her book is heartwarming and heartbreaking. Her second memoir, Where Is My Happy Ending? A Journey of No Regrets dates back to the 1970s, 80s, and 90s and tells the true story of Karen's struggles after leaving home at the age of seventeen. From the disco scene to becoming a single mother her story is relatable and offers insight into the healing process. Karen's storytelling ability, sense of humour and matter-of-fact way of looking at life is enjoyable, refreshing and said by many to be life-changing. Her all-encompassing mantra has always been to inspire and find the silver lining. This is evident from how she instructs fitness, to the many school-age children she has helped over the years, and comes out in both of her books. Karen's hobbies are writing (which she sets time aside for every Sunday) and cycling. She has enjoyed biking with the same friends over the past thirty years as far away as Nova Scotia, Montana and closer to her home on the west coast. With a substantial number of followers on Instagram, Karen enjoys conversing about writing, fitness and living life to the fullest.
