About Me

Hello! I’m Karen.

I’ve worked as a published writer/author for nearly twenty years, after graduating with an MA in Writing for Young People from Bath Spa University. I write for all ages, from picture books to YA and everything in between. As well as writing my own books, I’ve undertaken a wide variety of commissioned projects for global brands, working on fiction and non-fiction briefs.

Some things about me: I live in the SW of England with my husband, two sons and grumpy guinea pigs, I like yoga, walking in the countryside and reading in the sunshine. I can fluently mirror write and my favourite words are eclectic and catkin. I’m not the Karen Saunders who writes about bread making and toasties. I’m coeliac, so can’t even eat bread.

I often get asked to give out information about myself for people’s book reports. It’s super lovely to hear from you, but please understand I have to be careful giving out personal information online. Sorry about that. Keep reading!
