Karen Tyrrell shares Humour and Resilience



Literati Radio USA will interview me, author Karen Tyrrell on the power of humour and resilience.  I share my hilarious children’s space adventure Jo-Kin Battles the It with an empowering humour and resilience message.

Radio DJ and author, Tosha Michelle will ask me questions on how  I wrote Jo-Kin Battles the It co-jointly with my recovery memoir Me and Her: A Memoir of Madness.

I used humour in writing  Jo-Kin Battles the It as I struggled with mental health issues triggered by severe bullying and harassment from the parents of my school student. Jo-Kin Battles the It became a fun-like refuge as I was simultaneously wrote a gut-wrenching memoir, Me and Her: A Memoir of Madness.
