What readers are saying


I love the depth, spirit and magic of Karen Black’s first book,
. It will resonate with your heart, challenge your sense of mystery and inspire your soul.
— Linda Brady, President, Creative Choices, Inc. and author of
Discovering Your Soul Mission


is the kind of book that not only entertains and keeps your heart involved, but also informs and keeps your head engaged.
Karen skillfully weaves her themes together to create a moving, thought-
provoking novel that will leave the reader thinking about the book long after it’s finished. I thoroughly enjoyed this read!
— Cynthia Barlow, President, Constellation Learning and author of
Chicken Shift for the Soul


A message left on Karen’s voice mail (verbatim)
“Karen, it’s Dee, I had to call and tell you I’ve just read the first 119 pages of your book and oh my God it’s absolutely incredible. I am sitting in a mall doing a promotion and I can’t stop reading the book. Anyway, absolutely fabulous I love it, it’s got my attention. I don’t want to put it down ... it’s your fault. Congratulations, I can’t wait for the next page.”
— Dee Miller, Executive Director, Renewed Strength, age 41


Raw human emotion where desire collides with fear, fantasy interrupts, challenges abound and hope is restored. For the avid imagination and gutsy risk-taker. A ride for explorers of life’s mysteries untold.
— Linda Plater, Writer and Media Consultant, age 42


is visionary. This book follows its own path, as if paving the way to a new paradigm. It captures the vulnerability of the strong, contemporary, single woman in a way that is deep, honest and truly inspired with new thoughts about the human spirit. I relate to Althea on many levels.
engrossed me completely. When I finished the last page, I had to tear myself away. The characters felt like new friends.
— Sandra Bekhor MBA, B.Sc., President, Bekhor Management, age 39


is a sensuous and thrilling exploration of the human heart. Deeply character driven and compassionate, it explores what it is to be on this earth and live life in an ever changing, complex and dynamic spiritual and natural world. Honest and realistic in its exploration of modern women and our layered relationships with our mothers, our friends, our careers, our spirituality and the many men who are involved along the way. In all, an amazing feat and an incredible read!
— Ashleigh Hendry, Actor


is beautiful and sensuous and explores many of the same questions I’ve been asking myself lately. Even though some of the conclusions Althea came to were different than I might have made, Moondance even left room for differences. I thoroughly enjoyed
— Alene Clark M.Ed., retired Child and Family Therapist, age 62


In reading
, I felt like I knew the heroine like a friend. I could feel her pain in the first scene, and then she falls in a rabbit hole. What a ride! With twists and turns I never expected. Doing the delicate dance with emotions is never easy, but
makes it rich and entertaining. What a great read, I was on the edge of my seat. Althea and Michael have this air of restrained optimism which make them all the more human. Karen Black is a true storyteller.
— Roxanne Embleton, Patient Advisor, The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario, age 41


Karen is an amazing writer — the characters became very real to me, and
describes an amazing tale that incorporates many different ideas into one uniform concept. I’m in total awe of how she did it ... I really, really enjoyed
— Angela Jennings, Executive Producer, Fusion Television, age 34


I thoroughly enjoyed reading
. I found the characters absorbing and I especially enjoyed all the information about tarot cards, and what they mean. This book was “spellbinding” and the romance and inter-relationships kept my interest.
— Sue Spivak, Traffic Co-ordinator,Global Television, age 55


is engrossing, and an absolute delight to read. From the first few pages, I was swept into the emotional and spiritual journey of Althea Brecht.
— Brenda Girdwood, Owner and Operator, Brenda Y. Girdwood’s Personal Concierge Services, age 54


AS MOONDANCE IS PUBLISHED, I celebrate the twelfth anniversary of its conception. In 1996, I birthed the first one hundred and twenty pages in a curious, painful, unstructured wave. These pages turned out to be the book’s climax.

So first, I’d like to thank friend and fellow writer, Cynthia Barlow of Constellation Learning for creating the Trust Program and for inspiring me to finish what I started. Thanks also to karmic astrologer Linda Brady of Creative Choices for helping me get to the bottom of it all. My deepest appreciation to Dr. Wayne Watson for our long, delightful patio conversations, and for your gentle encouragement, even when I wasn’t ready.
