Hello, and thanks for visiting my website. Below you’ll find news about what I’m up to and what’s happening in my writing career, as well as a bit of information about my own background. Over in the blog you can read my thoughts on everything from the Roman Republic to Morgan Freeman, and on the book information pages you can find out about the stories I’ve already published.
My ten-minute guide to St Augustine is in the July edition of Premier Christianity Magazine, which is out now. I won the Christianity Magazine travel writing competition in January. You can read it online.
My latest full-length book is Augustine: The Truth Seeker, a biography of St Augustine for readers of about 11 years and up (with emphasis on the ‘up’ – it’s suitable of adults). It was released by Christian Focus in the UK in March 2014 and in the USA in April / May 2014. I recently finished a biography of St Patrick which is due for publication in 2016.
My audio adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Snow Queen was released by Word of Mouth Productions on 7th December. It stars Sophie Aldred (Ace from Dr Who in the late ’80s). A collection of my short stories is being recorded by Word of Mouth Productions, and should be released later in 2015.
Three of my short stories were released in October as part of Word of Mouth Productions‘ Ghost Stories UK audio books. The Glen (Scottish), The Child Taker (Welsh) and The Carlisle Ghost Walk (English) are published in volumes one, two and three respectively.
About K C Murdarasi
I am a professional writer, mainly of children’s fiction and short fiction (although I’m also available for more commercial work via People Per Hour etc.). My two e-collections of short stories, Office Life (and Death) and A New Year’s Trio, are available on Amazon, along with the very popular short story Running for Cover, which is also available free on Smashwords in various formats. I have written a couple of children’s novels (one of which, Leda, is on sale now), and my biography of St Augustine for children, Augustine the Truth Seeker, was released in March 2014. You may have seen some of my stories in Prima (Feb 2013), Take a Break Fiction Feast (Sept 2012), the Imagining Scotland website (May 2011), The People’s Friend (Apr 10th, 2010), Ruthless Peoples Magazine (Oct 2009), and various other magazines and anthologies. I write non-fiction, too. Visit Suite for some examples, covering everything from film reviews to literature and philosophy to how to wrap a present . I co-authored a report on Living, Working and Spirituality in Glasgow. Do check out the blog for flash fiction, reviews, rants, musings on the Christian life, and whatever else pops into my head.
I am a graduate of the University of St Andrews, Scotland’s first university. I was awarded first class honours in Ancient History, and I also have a Diploma of Higher Education (DipHE) in Theology from International Christian College. My surname is Albanian (everybody asks), and the K C stands for Karen Catherine. I lived and worked in Albania for a number of years but I am now based in my home town of Glasgow, Scotland. The long-term plan is to move back to Albania.
