About the Author
Karen Perkins is the author of seven fiction titles in the Valkyrie Series of Caribbean pirate adventures and the Yorkshire Ghosts Series. All of her fiction titles have appeared at the top of bestseller lists on both sides of the Atlantic, including the top 50 in the UK Kindle Store. Her first Yorkshire Ghost novel - The Haunting of Thores-Cross - won the silver medal for European fiction in the prestigious 2015 Independent Publisher Book Awards. Karen's latest book, Parliament of Rooks is due to be released in early 2017, and will be her third novel in the Yorkshire Ghosts Series. Set in both modern-day and Victorian Haworth - the West Yorkshire home of Charlotte, Emily and Anne Brontë - Parliament of Rooks delves into the era of 'The Yorkshire Slavery'. Men, women and children were employed in the mills that clothed half the empire in cotton and finest worsted, often working sixteen hours a day with no provision for their safety or well-being.
