Karen Stanley

Karen Stanley is a former hairdresser, teacher and now author. Karen is also a super proud wife, mummy and even prouder Nanny! She is passionate about books and loves to write chick lit style fiction. Karen really enjoys the lighter side of life and tries to add real-life humour to her stories, collecting ‘you couldn’t make it up’ type moments wherever she goes. Karen’s books are designed to include characters that her readers can identify with, laugh with, occasionally sympathise with, and hopefully provide just the right amount of escapism.

Karen is also a budding vlogger, having dragged myself into the baffling world of technology (with a little help from her son and daughter-in-law!). She is on FB and Twitter, so why not join her there too?@KarenStanleyAuthor or @KStanleyAuthor

Karen also writes children’s fiction and especially loves reading and writing poetry. She runs creative writing workshops for children in libraries, schools and bookshops and these focus on the creative process that inspires writing.
