Very excited and proud to announce my third audio book is now available on Audible, iTunes and Amazon.  Particularly excited because so many brain injury survivors struggle to read, like I do.  It’s difficult to follow the written word and, as I’ve found, too many audio books are narrated too fast and are hard to follow along with.  I paid special care to ensure my narration was clean and well-paced.  Thrilled to offer this as an additional tool in survivors’ recoveries.  Was wowed to hear of people using the first audio book of the original Fork in their TBI support groups and rehab sessions.  That means more to me than I could ever well-express.

In this narration, I really felt connected to you.  I laughed during it.  I cried some.  It was a special opportunity and experience for me to feel how the best part of such a challenging experience is the ability to share it and help others with it.  Feels great.  :))))))

Remember that, if you go to Audible and sign up for a free trial, you can obtain my new audio for free.   Yay!

Hoping this is another way to add to your successful recovery as you ROCK THIS LIFE!!!!



  1. Congratulations. Your books are very helpful. They have helped me understand how to do even the simple tasks. I now create shopping lists so my headaches are manageable while during errands. It was amazing that a simple list can take my headaches from a level 9 to a level 5.

  3. Congratulations, Kara! I remember struggling to read “Fork” early in my TBI journey. Taking a seat on the “TBI bus” really resonated with me. My doctors and family did not have answers for me. I was frustrated and scared. Your words, your story, your humor helped me so much. Can’t wait to hear your voice on this audiobook!🌷

  4. You make me smile, Sharon Lynn. I, too, have struggled to read. Even twenty years later, it’s hard for me to sit with a book. I used to read a book a night for long stretches. Now it’s hard to even be patient enough to sit there and read. The audio books now are such a personal triumph for me. My priority was pace and clarity for those of us who struggle with other fast-paced narrations. But, for me personally, it was a “next step” goal. A big dare, really. Ha. Some of the parts of my books made me laugh and cry and I chose to leave those in. I wanted it to be an intimate time with everyone. No one except for this community can imagine how difficult it was to record all that reading. Ha. It is truly something I am very proud to put out there to people who get how challenging it was. :)))))))
