I live in Buckinghamshire with my husband and three grown-up children where I write romantic comedy novels published by Bookouture and psychological suspense for HQDigital/HarperCollins.

Over the years I've been a secretary/bookkeeper, a wedding photographer, a pub manager, I've worked in a supermarket, a newsagent's, and as a librarian - all good for story ideas.

I now write full-time, and when I'm not writing I read a lot, enjoy walking - which is good for plot-wrangling and ideas - watching Netflix, baking and eating cakes. And then more walking to work off the cakes.

Karen Clarke Hi Scott, no need to apologise!

I'm so pleased you enjoyed Being Brooke Simmons as that was one of my favourite books to write :-)

Hi Scott, no need to apologise!

I'm so pleased you enjoyed Being Brooke Simmons as that was one of my favourite books to write :-)

My book as K A Clarke isn't a romantic comedy, so quite a lot darker. After writing romance for 12 books, I wanted to make a switch and am currently working on my first solo psychological suspense novel, which should be out in October, as well as cowriting another thriller with Amanda Brittany.

Hope you enjoy it!

Perfect

Perfect Christmas (or anytime) read, well-written, full of warmth, wit and romance (both Mack and Jamie were perfect) with some moving moments too. I loved it.
