Mr. Chuckles swung by the Wizard's Cauldron, meeting MS-defying motivational speaker Karen Magill

The Wizard says:

Karen Magill was trotting along quite nicely, enjoying life, clubbing, following bands (mostly Poison), editing a rock fanzine, and just doing her thing when she was - cutting a long story short - diagnosed with MS. 

Losing a top job, she soon found herself unemployed and on benefits. Earlier this year, she wrote her story. I read it the other day and it is an eye opener.  

Karen's work fits squarely in a long tradition of exposition, memoir and true life "factionalisation" of physical and mental health issues and arguably, Indie has played a significant part in allowing authors to share their stories and to show that sufferers of conditions like MS are not alone.

An envied resident of the beautiful city of Vancouver, I contacted her as she wandered the streets of the city's artists quarter. Here's what she had to day.

Owen Sage is the emblematic college freshman at Easton Falls University. With all the worries about his first year in college, he was not prepared for what would happen next. His way of life was flipped upside down when he mysteriously crossed into another dimension, into the beautiful land of Everville. His excitement was abruptly halted when he discovered that there was a darkness forged against both the natural world, which he knew well, and the new land which he discovered, Everville. He must devise a plan to save both worlds while joining forces with the race of Fron and The Keepers, whom both harbor hidden secrets he must learn in order to gain power over the evil that dwells in The Other In Between.

With a race against time to save both worlds, his short time at Easton Falls did not quite prepare him for the evil, dark forces he must fight in order to conquer The Other In Between.
