Hi, and welcome to my website.

Children's Book of the year awards logo

The first title in my MAJOR AND MYNAH series has been shortlisted in the inaugural The Week Junior book awards. I’m delighted it has been chosen and is sitting alongside other great titles for younger readers. You can find out more here.

Operation Raven is out now! It’s the second title in my junior detective series MAJOR AND MYNAH and this time the action takes place at the historic Tower of London.

Book cover of Operation Raven

Callie, Grace, and Bo get caught up in an adventure involving priceless treasure and a conspiracy of ravens. Having a Spy in the Sky might just come in handy…

It’s published by Firefly Press, illustrated by Louise Forshaw, and perfect for readers age 6+. Buy the book here or at a bookshop near you.

I was invited by the Book Trust to write a piece for their blog about why it was so important to me to create a character with hearing loss, which you can read here.

Happy reading,

Karen Owen
