About Karen O'Brien-Hall

I've had many careers in my life and loved each one! My new career blossomed when I retired and become an OAP. I am passionate about childhood literacy, books in general and my garden. I love ballet, opera, concerts, theatre, (both professional and community) and movies. I tend to have opinions on most things and enjoy a good debate about the topic, not with the person. In my thirties, I married my GOM (Gorgeous or Grumpy Old Man), who's the love of my life.
