Major and Mynah book cover


Hi, and welcome to my website.

My new junior fiction novel is out now! Meet Callie, Bo and Grace on the first of their fast-paced detective adventures in Major & Mynah. AND… publisher Firefly Press has announced that book 2 in the series will hit the shelves in Spring 2023!

In book 1, things change for Callie when she realises her new hearing aids – AKA The Slugs – give her the unique ability to communicate with Bo the mynah bird. In fact, having a pair of spying eyes in the sky will come in handy. This is the first in a series of adventures with S.P.U.D. (Super Perceptive Undercover Detectives) and includes high-speed chases, a very peckish bird and purple poo! It’s illustrated by Louise Forshaw and perfect for readers age 7+. You can read the first chapter and pre-order the book here.

Here’s my launch day interview

Happy reading,

Karen Owen
