Karen Sheard (Karen Heard)
Writer of speculative fiction, including gothic, fantasy and mysteries

I joined Create50 in 2015. I have reviewed 6 projects.

Whatever genre I write in, all my stories have one thing in common: they are all dark. Don't expect many happy endings from me.

About Me

Karen Heard lives in London (UK) and writes dark fiction in a range of genres, including Gothic, ghost and mystery stories. Whatever genre she writes in, all her stories have one thing in common: they are all dark. Don't expect many happy endings or pleasant characters from her, for there is something dark lurking in the shadows of her imagination that makes itself known in each tale that escapes her mind.

Karen had a degree in Creative Writing and has worked for the past ten years in the magazine publishing industry.
