Update on Karen

Hey, Karen (also known on LJ as msgordo, and writer of my favourite humor stories like Don't Mess Around With Jim and the one where Blair and the donut girl save the day, asked me to pass along her good wishes to everyone! She's doing very well, is still living on the Isle of Mull, and is busy with her son, home, job, dog and two cats who appeared from nowhere. She's hoping to ease back onto the 'net but doesn't have much free time these days -- when she checked her old email account some time ago, she was blown away, overwhelmed, by all the people who have written her with feedback and to encourage her to keep writing, and she is very grateful to everyone for not forgetting about her. She's hoping she might be able to make the GM Over Here III UK Con if it's held in October next year and would love to catch up with people there.

Thank you! I often think about her and miss her, and hope she'll make it back to LJ one day - please, if you get a chance, pass on my hugs.

I will most definitely pass along your hugs! You know, she's the most humble person and has the hardest time believing how much we all enjoy her writing, and how very much we miss her.

I will most definitely pass along your hugs!

Thank you... and of course we miss her! I loved not just her writing but her LJ entries too - she's had me crying with laughter at times, and comes across as a lovely warm person. I'm so glad things are going well for her - I really admired her for taking the plunge and changing her life so completely.

We'll have to put breadcrumbs down to lure her back... ::plots *g*::

I'm so pleased you are still in touch with Karen. Lets hope she can make it to GMOH. I so enjoyed talking to her that day.

She really is a doll, isn't she. I'm determined to see her the next time I come over -- fancy a road trip to Mull? ::grins::

I would swim the Atlantic to meet Karen at GMOH. She MUST come!

And how are you doing, m'dear?

Oh, yeah, if she goes to GMOH, then I'd truly hate to miss it. I've promised myself the next time I go over there, I'm going to Mull to see her. I just love her.

I'm doing very well. All tests, xrays, CT scan were clear and surgery is on for 16 Sept!

That's such good news. I've missed her, could only hope she was doing well. Thanks for passing on the news.

Just got pointed here from one of the Gateverse search comms. I'm very glad to see this news. Karen isn't just a marvelous writer; she's also a wonderful, sweet, generous person. It's good to hear that she's doing okay. Please add my voice to those who miss her and are wishing her well.

Thank you for the update, it's good to know she is doing well. She is missed.

Thanks for the update, I'm glad she's ok. Please let her know that a fan waits patiently for more Love's Tangled web, Ilove her stuff. Is there a place where her SGA and Sentinel stuff is archived? I've found some of her Sen stuff on the Prospect site but not my old favourite Blair and the Donut girl. My email is miki@homemail.com.au
Thanks again

I second mikikat...and am thrilled to hear whe is still with us. I love Karen's writing and look forward to reading more of her work. If she needs help? Mull isn't too far from Ilkley Moor...

When next in contact - please tell her how much she is both missed - & needed.
