About Karen Oberlaender

My name is Karen. I am a linguist, translator, and technical author. I spend my time mainly in Germany and Ireland and collect my inspirations on the go.

My stories will certainly comprise some hobbies, favourite locations, animals, topics, beverages, etc. Locations do exist; pubs and/or shops might be gone; people are fictional unless stated otherwise.

+++ Upcoming: "Neighbors!" (a flash fiction series) +++

My personal motto:

Don’t look back in anger!

Review by: Marcia Carrington on June 07, 2017 :
IN A SMALL COMPASS is a thought-provoking short story collection exploring themes such as telepathy and the paranormal in a suspenseful, entertaining manner. The stories all had something revealing and witty to say about the human condition, making this an easy-read book. I look forward to seeing the next instalment of this collection, and longer standalone stories by the author.
