Karen Drake, Paralympian, is having a busy time of it of late. Not only is Karen competing in the 2012 Paralympics over the next 11 days, but she is also just publishing her second book, due for launch on 7 September.
Boundless continues Karen's story of being SCI, after falling during a climbing trip when she was 21 years old. This second book will change direction from the herotic adventure that she wrote about in If You Fall. Instead Boundless concentrates on a view of life’s challenges and the profound effects of wilderness, demonstrating just what is possible when we set our heart and mind to something, and have the support of a good team – the ingredients that enable us to really go beyond limits.
Karen currently has her eyes set on Gold in London. Catch up on how she get on at: http://paralympics.channel4.com
Signed copies of Karen’s books, ‘If You Fall’ and ‘Boundless’ can both be ordered at www.karendarke.com Boundless will be out in print on 7 September 2012.
