Karen Perkins is the author of seven fiction titles in the Valkyrie Series of Caribbean pirate adventures and the Yorkshire Ghosts Series. All of her fiction titles have appeared at the top of bestseller lists on both sides of the Atlantic, including the top 50 in the UK Kindle Store. Her first Yorkshire Ghosts novel – THE HAUNTING OF THORES-CROSS – won the silver medal for European fiction in the prestigious 2015 Independent Publisher Book Awards in New York, whilst her Valkyrie novel, DEAD RECKONING, was long-listed in the 2011 MSLEXIA novel competition.
Karen’s latest book in the Yorkshire Ghosts Series, is now available. PARLIAMENT OF ROOKS: HAUNTING BRONTË COUNTRY is set in both modern-day and Victorian Haworth – the West Yorkshire home of Charlotte, Emily and Anne Brontë. Parliament of Rooks delves into the era of ‘The Yorkshire Slavery’, and contrasts the beautiful, inspiring village of Haworth today with the slum – or rookery – it was during the industrial revolution: rife with disease, heartache, poverty, and employing child slavery in the mills.
Karen is also the proprietor of LionheART Publishing House, a publishing services company for independent authors. To date she has edited over 150 titles - both fiction and non-fiction - now in publication, including the 2017 Kindle Storyteller Award Winner, The Relic Hunters by David Leadbeater.
