Born within the sound of the Bow bells in London, Karen Lee Field was seven when her parents decided to move to the “Lucky Country” and settle in Sydney, Australia. Apart from enjoying time with her family and pets, Karen loves escaping to fantasy worlds—places where her sometimes ordinary life is transformed into an exciting adventure and her imagination is set free. She writes novels for children and adults in various genres and her short stories appear in several anthologies. She currently lives on the south coast of NSW.

There's no point waiting for inspiration because it may never hit you, when this happens I sit and type one word at a time. Before I know it, I've written a paragraph, then two, and then I'm typing normally because I've found my flow.(less)

Benjamin Solah I think I have a short attention span. Most of the books are of different types so depending on my mood, I'll read different books.

The Blogging Revolution is good at the moment because I was finding Pamuk too dense, and I have to read Bukharin for a Marxist reading group - so that's not really fun reading. My head wants to explode after each chapter but I'm learning heaps from it.


Benjamin Solah I'll gladly take credit *grin*
