Karen Perkins lives in Yorkshire, England, where she spends her time writing as well as editing and formatting as proprietor of LionheART Publishing House. She has been a keen sailor since childhood, competing nationally and internationally until the day she had both National and European Ladies Championship titles – and a terminally bad back.

Both are number one bestsellers in UK Sea Adventures on Amazon) in the Valkyrie Series. A further Valkyrie novel, Look Sharpe!, will be published at the end of 2013, followed by Ready About!

A dark, haunting tale set in the North Yorkshire Moors about isolation, superstition and persecution, Thores-Cross follows the stories of Emma, a present day writer, and Jennet, an eighteenth century witch.
