Karen is originally from the UK but has lived in sunny Perth, Western Australia since 2008, which practically makes her a local!

With a writerly father and a lifetime with her head and heart stuck in books, Karen has aspired to be an author for as long as she can remember.

After writing her ‘experimental first book’, (a fantasy novel) in 2015, she has moved on to the fun genre of cozy mysteries.

Karen is still working on becoming an overnight success 😋. In the meantime, she continues to carve out a creative life whilst working as a freelance copyeditor and mothering her two teenagers and a fluffy white cat.
