Beautiful yet painful story
By Athletic Mom on April 20, 2016

"Beautiful yet painful story, with the intensity of the author's love evident in her thoughtful choice of words. Written about struggles common to teenage boys but in a voice accessible to and relatable for mothers --- and fathers --- with children of any age/gender. Eager to read what this talented author publishes next!"

Deeply Relatable

"I'm not even a mom, but I understood this one."

"Karen Donohue's latest story, All That, captures that deep pain that we've all overcome mostly, but which our mothers can touch in an instant."

"Your stories are like my favorite stinky cheeses. Divinely pungent and addictive, but my system can only handle so much. (That's meant as a compliment, btw.)"


"When I read Grit, there was NOT ONE SINGLE WORD I would change. I'm not a woman, I don't have a daughter (or even a sister) and I LOVED IT."
