Amazon Bestselling Young Adult Author
An established British Author, Karen writes books for teenagers, young adults, and adults with teenage hearts.
Karen's books fall into the broad genre of Speculative Fiction, a type of story writing that involves supernatural, futuristic or other imagined elements. This encompasses the traditional genres of Fantasy, Science Fiction, Horror, Supernatural Fiction and Science Fantasy.
This diverse, eclectic, genre provides Karen with the flexibility to write stories that appear very different, but each maintains that 'otherworldly' element which she loves, and which has come to characterise her work.
Karen's début novel ASCENSION OF THE WHYTE became an Amazon Bestseller, as did the second in the series RYTE OF PASSAGE. The Afterland Chronicles series, described as Lord of the Rings meets Harry Potter, was completed in 2017 with the release of ICE AND FYRE, the third book in the series.
Her Post-Apocalyptic, Dystopian novel, THE LAST GIRL GUIDE, has also won high praise.
Prior to becoming an author, Karen worked for nine years with the Norfolk Police before gaining a first degree in Bio-Psychological Sciences and later, a Masters in Psychological and Medical Sciences. Karen then taught Psychology at Local Colleges for over fifteen years before giving up teaching to write full time.
Karen has two daughters and lives in a small cottage in rural Norfolk, England with her husband John, crazy dog Jinks, and Pippin, their remarkably lazy cat.
