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 avoiding plastic (plus the odd post in Albanian or Esperanto, if that floats your boat), while on the book information pages you can find out about the works I’ve already published.

Please have a poke around, and feel free to get in touch using the contact form on the right. Or if it’s media information you’re after, here’s a handy PDF download.

About K C Murdarasi

I am an author of fiction and non-fiction for adults and young people, often with a historical theme.

My two collections of short stories, Office Life (and Death) and A New Year’s Trio, are available as e-books and paperbacks. My very popular short story e-book, Running for Cover, is available free on Smashwords in various formats. My YA novel, Leda, is available from bookshops, as are a couple of biographies of famous Christians for young people (Augustine the Truth Seeker and Patrick: The Boy Who Forgave). My wee book on How to Get Published is yours free if you sign up to my infrequent newsletter, or you can just buy it from Amazon.

I also write for magazines, anthologies and blogs. You may have seen some of my articles in History Today, Christianity magazine or on the Dyslexia Scotland blog, A Life Less Ordinary. Do check out my own 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 and most of a diploma in Public Service Interpreting from the CIoL. 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 Glasgow, Scotland, where in between writing I do a lot of Albanian interpreting and translation.
