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.
I’ve just finished writing my latest novel, The Gates of Janus. Hooray! Now I have to find someone to publish it. Wish me luck!
My humorous short story ‘The Painted Castle’ won joint third place in the 2016 Channillo competition.
My article on Arsinoe IV of Egypt (and if you’re thinking “who?” – that’ the point) was published as part of the Dangerous Women Project.
About K C Murdarasi
I am a professional writer, mainly of young adult fiction and short fiction (although I’m also available for more commercial work via People Per Hour etc.). My two collections of short stories, Office Life (and Death) and A New Year’s Trio, are available on Amazon as e-books and paperbacks. My very popular short story e-book, Running for Cover, is also available free on Smashwords in various formats. I have written a couple of YA novels (one of which, Leda, is available from bookshops) and a couple of biographies for young people (Augustine the Truth Seeker and Patrick: The Boy Who Forgave). I have also had short stories published in a number of magazines and anthologies.
I write non-fiction, too. You may have seen some of my articles in Christianity magazine or on the now-defunct Suite 101. I also co-authored a report on Living, Working and Spirituality in Glasgow and occasionally write Sunday school materials for Go Teach. 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.
