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.

Please have a poke around, and feel free to get in touch using the contact form on the right. You can also find me on Twitter (@kcmurdarasi) and Goodreads.


I won the Christianity Magazine travel writing competition. My entry, which is about the Athens, is published in the January issue of the magazine, or you can read it online.

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).

Three of my short stories were released in October as part of Word of Mouth ProductionsGhost 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.

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 am currently working on a biography of St Patrick.

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.

My Background

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.
