Karen Charlton is the international best-selling author of The Detective Lavender Mysteries which are set in Regency London and feature Bow Street’s Principal Officer, Stephen Lavender and his humorous side-kick, Constable Ned Woods.

Her brand new series, The York Ladies' Detective Agency Mysteries features two enterprising young women, Jemma and Bobbie, who launch a private inquiry agency in York during WW2.

In addition to this, she has written a stand-alone historical novel, 'Catching the Eagle', based on the true story of her notorious criminal ancestor and a non-fiction genealogical book, Seeking Our Eagle that explains how she and her late husband tracked down the jail-bird in their family tree.

A former English teacher, with two grown-up children and a small grandson, Karen lives in a Yorkshire fishing village with two cats and writes full-time.

A stalwart of the village pub quiz team, Karen joined them when they competed in the BBC’s famous Quiz Show, ‘Eggheads’ – a TV programme she’d never watched before. Much to her surprise, they won.

Karen loves historical fiction and TV costume drama and has always enjoyed a good mystery.

She also loves to hear from readers and you can easily contact her via her website: www.karencharlton.com
