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.
Patrick of Ireland: The Boy Who Forgave has just been released and will be formally launched on 5th December, 2pm at O’Neill’s Irish pub, 457 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow. This a biography of St Patrick for young people strips away the myths and concentrates on what we actually know.
My collection of humorous short stories, Office Life (and Death), is now available as a paperback, as well as in Kindle format.
My ten-minute guide to St Augustine was in the July edition of Premier Christianity Magazine. I won the Christianity Magazine travel writing competition in January. You can read it online.
A collection of my short stories is being recorded by Word of Mouth Productions, and should be released later in 2015 or 2016.
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.
