About Me

Hi there! I’m Karen and I’m very pleased to meet you. I’m a writer and blogger, trying to find time to do it while keeping up the day job to cover those boring bills. I write spooky and creepy stories, and occasionally sexy ones. Sometimes I combine all three.
I write flash fiction, short stories and I have a novel in progress (doesn’t everyone?) I am currently studying for a degree in English Literature and Creative Writing with the Open University, and I am a member of my local writers’ group, Falkirk Writers’ Circle. I live in central Scotland with my long-suffering husband and four mad cats.

As well as here on my blog, you can find me on:

  1. Hi Karen,

    Good to have stumbled upon your blog. It is quite nice and has a good feel to it.
    I am a new blogger too (although you are perhaps ahead of me by a few miles) and I would love it if you visited my new blog. The link is as below:


    And Congrats on being nominated for the Awards. Frankly, I didn’t know awards such as this existed for new blogs Great indeed. Good Luck! I am following you 🙂

    Best Wishes

  3. Evening, Karen. Wondering if you can help me out. Some others and I are self publishing a collection of short stories at the end of this month. I hear going on a ‘blog tour’ is the thing to do. I’m wondering if you’d be interested in hosting a post about the book. An interview or something… I’d love to have you over on my blog as well if you ever want to branch out from here. Here’s my email if you’re interested and thank you for all your support. (jennifer.m.zeiger@gmail.com) Keep up the writing=)

    • Hi Jennifer, yes I would be happy to help and host something about the book. An interview would be fine (with you, or you and the other authors), and we would also include blurb about the book, links to where to buy it and links to you guys, and cover photo. Basically we could do whatever you feel best promotes the book! I am putting ’email Jennifer’ on my to-do list right now….speak to you soon! xx

    • Hi Dave, thanks for following. Just been checking out your blog, too. 🙂
      Joe was one of the first people I followed, and he’s been very encouraging! (As well as being a great writer!)
