Take Writing Seriously, But Not Yourself – Karen Heenan – Joined Up#116

It’s episode 116 with Karen Heenan talking about her debut Historical Fiction novel, Songbird. Karen explains how she broke through via Twitter, tells us about her writing process and the joy of breaking free of her cubicle prison!

Karen was born and raised in Philadelphia. She fell in love with books and stories before she learned to read, and has wanted to write for almost as long. After far too many years in a cubicle, she set herself free to follow her dreams – which include gardening, sewing, traveling and, of course, lots of writing. She lives in Lansdowne, not far from Philadelphia, with four cats and a very patient husband. And her debut novel Songbird is out right now.
