I HAVE A STORE!
Spread the message: BE A GOOD HUMAN!
Like everyone else, I have a Covid-19 update! (and I have an update to my update on my update. New information is in BOLD)
I wrote a book for these trying times for our littlest humans! What we don’t know can be very scary. I wanted a tool to help people explain clearly what is going on to our youngest members of society. I wanted to actually use the words “Novel Corona Virus.” I also wanted it to be decidedly NOT scary and to give comfort and hope. So, in 32 hours I wrote, illustrated AND published a book!
EXCITING NEWS! I have produced The Germ for Schools! See the top of this page!!
(You can NOW get a hard copy, of the book (2nd Edition) here: The Germ on Blurb books ) It includes a new page!
You can get a download of the first edition of the book for FREE, here: The Germ on Apple Books
And for those on other devices, I added a file that should work for you (fingers crossed)!
For other eBook readers:
THERE IS NOW A SECOND EDITION!
Yes, things change SO fast that I updated the book already. It has a new page. The new PDF is here:
Please stay safe, everyone! Love to all the littles!
PLEASE SHARE THIS BOOK FAR AND WIDE!!!
Wishing you all the good health,
P.S If you would like to donate to help get The Germ into the hands of school teachers, please Contact Me!

I am hoping that you landed here because you read one of my books (Click here for the ‘Mandy’ book). Or maybe someone told you about the site. Or maybe you just did a random search and this is where you crash landed. (Or maybe you are one of my friends that I sucessfully pestered into coming here – Hello!) However you got here, I am glad that you are here.
My name is Karyn and I am a writer (read blog posts here ). I “divide my time” as they say, between two coastal cities, Los Angeles and Honolulu. My work covers a lot of very disparate genres, but someone pointed out that there was a theme that runs through all of it: namely, the importance of well-being. I hesitate to use the term “mental health,” or even “emotional health,” because I believe that human beings are indivisible. Our bodies, our minds and our spirits are all interconnected. We are also connected to each other and to everything around us. “Well-being” is the best theme that I can come up with that sums up my longing for wholeness, for myself and for everyone (and everything) else.
KARYNG seemed to be a good name for the website, since it is my first name and middle initial, and “karyn g” is how I often sign off on poems — and one day I had the sudden realization that it could be pronounced “Caring.” Please make your self at home and take a look around at what I am working on. If you like what you see, share the link (or a book!) with a friend.
Wishing you well,
