Karin Cox


Karin Cox edits and writes in her "spare time" while being a fulltime mum to a toddler and to a black cat with the improbable name of "Ping Pong."

She is the author of more than 30 trade-published natural history books, biographies, Australian social history books, children's picture storybooks, and travel guides, several of which have won awards. Karin has had poems and short stories published in anthologies worldwide and her ebooks CRUXIM, GROWTH, CAGE LIFE, HEY LITTLE SISTER and PANCAKES ON SUNDAY are available on Amazon.

Thankfully, the busier she gets, the more creative she is (and the more likely to afford to hire a housekeeper). Karin and her partner live in sunny Queensland, Australia, where she writes from her back deck overlooking the pool, her study (overlooking her messy desk) or her couch (overlooking Dr Phil, who gives her a lot of inspiration). You can follow her on twitter @Authorandeditor or visit her fanpage on Facebook www.facebook.com/KarinCox.Author. Also, feel free to email her on cruxim@hotmail.com

Smashwords book reviews by Karin Cox

  • A Petition to Magic on Feb. 08, 2013

    Reading almost like a parable, A Petition to Magic is a short story about a wizard with a guilty secret and a new Queen struggling to trust her instincts. It is a simply crafted but well written tale in which good overcomes evil, and it will certainly keep readers intrigued until the end. Readers will no doubt love to hate the misogynist antagonist, Marcus, and will be glad to see Queen Celeste use her powers for good and not evil while she learns to trust herself as much as she trusts her wizard friend.
