Karen graduated from Glasgow University’s Creative Writing Masters in 2003. Before turning to writing, she was a police officer with Strathclyde Police, and her first four novels focus on the people behind the uniform: The Twilight Time, After the Fire, Shadowplay, and Proof of Life. Her fifth novel This is Where I Am, a story about a Somali refugee living in Glasgow, is published by Bloomsbury Circus, and was a Radio 4 Book at Bedtime. Originally from Glasgow, Karen now lives in Galloway. She’s also worked as an editor and press officer at Glasgow City Council, and as a communications trainer, so has experience in editing/media & presentation. Karen also tutors regularly at Arvon and is a Peer Advisor for Literature/Writing in Dumfries & Galloway.
