Bestselling author Owen Mullen is a McIlvanney Crime Book Of The Year long-listed novelist.

Owen Mullen graduated from Strathclyde University, moved to London and worked as a rock musician, session singer and songwriter, and had a hit record in Japan with a band he refuses to name; Owen still loves to perform on occasion.

A gregarious recluse, he and his wife, Christine, split their time between Glasgow, and their home away from home in the Greek Islands where the Charlie Cameron and Delaney series', and the In Harm's Way psychological thriller were created.

Karen Dear Owen

We recently became friends on Good Reads. I am writing to tell you there might be some confusion when I change my name from Mary to Karen Murphy.

When I joined Good Reads in 2014 I registered with my personal email address and password. My sister died suddenly in January, 2013. As a way of memorializing her, I made her name into my email address, So Good Reads assumed my name was Mary because that is the prefix of my email. My real name is Karen. I have been unable up to this point to fix my profile page to edit and save the changes. I now have step by step directions so I am going to try to change my name from my sister's name to my name Karen Murphy,

Sorry for any confusion this may cause you.

Your Good Reads Friend
Karen Murphy
