Karen Osman on her second novel, The Home!

Psychological thrillers, crime, and domestic noir novels are all genres I have enjoyed reading so it made sense that I would write books along the same lines. Like most authors, I get asked a lot about where I get the ideas for my books, especially as the darker themes may seem a little at odds with what people see on my social media profiles!

This is me!

When I was asked to write a guest post about Broken Dolls I wasn’t sure what I could add to previous articles; so I have decided to tell you a little more about what makes me tick.
So please bear with me. It will be my most personal post and I hope it will give readers a sense of what I have achieved – and what they too could achieve.
I have always loved a challenge; in fact I thrive on them. Each morning when I wake up I set myself a few daily goals. The tasks are attainable. I do not set myself goals that would lead to failure – at least not too often!

Hello everyone. I’m thrilled that Aria are republishing my Riverhill trilogy this month, and that they have asked me to write this blog post to give a little more background about my novels.

I am often asked what my writing influences are and am generally expected to name well-known authors. But people are usually surprised to learn that my biggest writing influence by far is life itself, especially considering the gritty and graphic nature of my novels.
