Karen J Mossman comes from a family of journalists with her grand father and uncle having been newspaper editors. Further back a great, great grandfather wrote for his local paper and also published a book based on those articles. Karen is the only one to have gone into the fiction market.
In 2013 she was made redundant and decided to write part time. "The first works I had published were short storiy collections with themes. Putting them together was exciting as I didn't think my writing would ever reach a wider audience," she said. "I'm very pleased to have added now a full novel to my collection of published material"
Karen lives in Manchester with her husband and a Yorkshire terrier. She has two children, who were both born on the same day two years apart. They were also 2lbs difference in weight and all while they lived at house number 22. She also has one grandchild.
