To celebrate the publication of her new medieval thriller THE PLAGUE CHARMER, Karen has some exciting events planned around the country in 2017. She will be talking about the background to her latest novel – the second and more terrible plague, and the real stories behind the lives of some of her more unusual characters, as well as a mysterious medieval penal colony in Somerset to which the witches, sorcerers and heretics were banished.

In April, Karen will be tutoring a Master Class in Historical Fiction Writing Workshop as part of the Stratford Spring Literary Festival and the first ever Deepings Literary Festival. She would love to meet you at any of these events if you are able to come along.
