What if you woke one day to find yourself paralysed on one side of your body?
That’s what happened to Karen Magill on June 5, 2000. Nine days later she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and just over three months after that, she had to leave the best job she had ever had. Ms. Magill started on a frightening, confusing journey that was her life now.
Then something interesting happened. Once Karen began adjusting to her new circumstances, coming to terms with the fact that her former life had vanished, she realized that the MS was a gift. Her eyes opened to the possibilities around her.
On The Right Side, My Story of Survival and Success looks at Ms. Magill’s life with MS and the factors in life, which influence her. This isn’t a how to book on living well with chronic illness, but rather a touching, opinionated, sometimes humorous story on how one person has gone from partial paralysis to jumping to touch low hanging tree leaves.
As long as we aren’t six feet under, we are on the right side and anything is possible. That’s the philosophy Ms. Magill lives by and hopes that readers will come to realize that they too can overcome hardships and live good lives.

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
On The Right Side was difficult at times to write. I consulted two diaries I kept at the time and I ended up reliving much of the emotional turmoil I went through then. When I write fiction, I don’t have that turmoil. As for others in my genre, I am honest and vulnerable throughout this entire novel. I make sure to let people know how my poor behaviour made my life worse. I don’t blame everything on the MS.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I have multiple sclerosis and I have been through a lot of ups and downs over the last 14 years, since the diagnosis. I have faced bankruptcy, severe illness and other crisis. But I have not only gotten through it,I have thrived and am now an award winning novelist. To date, I have four fiction books published and one non fiction. I want people to realize they do have the power to overcome obstacles.
About the Author:
Forced to leave the workforce in 2000 by the onslaught of MS, Karen saw this as an opportunity to explore her lifelong desire to write. In February of 2014, Karen independently published an inspiring story of her journey so far with MS entitled On The Right Side, My Story of Survival and Success.
Ms. Magill believes that anything is possible and when she writes fiction, she leans towards the paranormal. She writes about extrasensory powers as if they are commonplace because, in her mind, we are all capable of those gifts.
To date, Ms. Magill is the author of four published paranormal novels, including the award winning The Bond, A Paranormal Love Story.
Karen lives in an eclectic area of Vancouver Canada and draws inspiration from the history and stories around her.
