Hi there! I'm Karen Wrighton, author of books for teenagers and for adults with teenage hearts.


In my youth, I attended Great Yarmouth College of Art and Design where I completed an art and design course.  I then worked for nine years with the Norfolk Police before attending university and gaining a first honors degree in Bio-Psychological Sciences and later a Masters in Psychological and Medical Sciences.

I went on to teach Psychology and Biological Sciences at Local Colleges for over fifteen years before leaving the classroom in order to update my skills in art and design and to write my first book.

My début novel ASCENSION OF THE WHYTE became an Amazon Bestseller, as did the second in the series RYTE OF PASSAGE. The Afterland Chronicles series, described as Lord of the Rings meets Harry Potter, was completed in 2017 with the release of ICE AND FYRE, the third book in the series.

My latest novel, THE LAST GIRL GUIDE, a Young Adult, Post-Apocalyptic, Dystopian novel, has also won much praise. 

I now divide my time between writing, book design, and providing other publishing services such as logo design and author branding.
