Karen Saunders - Author

Karen Saunders often gets asked where the inspiration for her character Suzy Puttock comes from. The truth is, she's a walking, talking disaster zone, just like Suzy. If you even meet Karen, ask her about her most embarrassing moments. She's got loads.

After Karen graduated with a degree in English Literature from Warwick University, she did lots of different jobs, like selling Christmas hampers, answering telephones and working in PR. She didn't like any of them much so went back to university to complete an MA in Writing for Yound People at Bath Spa University. She's been making up stories about badgers, pop stars, fairies, cars, superheroes and klutzy teenage girls ever since.
