Karen Bayly was born in Sydney, Australia. She's been an actor, director, musician (new wave and classical) and scientist. However, no matter what else she's done, she's also written - stories, songs, screenplays. Although she's delved into non-fiction and written agricultural, medical and scientific articles and e-books, fiction is where her heart lies. She loves to create worlds and tell stories and find it near impossible to restrict herself to just one genre.
Karen's first novel, "Fortitude", has just been published by Mary Celeste Press, and she's had numerous short stories published in print and online journals. She is currently writing her second novel, a YA fantasy. She's also written three screenplays - one long, two short. One of these, "The Reconciled", made the quarterfinals of Screencraft's Short Screenplay Competition 2016 and a short story titled "Daphne's Dance" made the quarterfinals of Screencraft's Short Story Competition 2016.
She loves science and has qualifications in biology and ethology. When not writing, she unwinds with photography. She adores animals and has a huge gooey spot for cats, horses, and birds. Although an avid fan of science fiction and fantasy TV and film, she also appreciates serious drama - just not in her own life.
