News is somewhat thin on the ground during this never-ending crisis, but I have managed to do the odd thing:

My article on the effects of lockdown on kids was published in Premier’s Christianity magazine in July. I’m currently working on another article which will be out in February.

My short story “Mr Norris’ Profession” is included in a new anthology of crime stories released on 10th June, with all profits going to charity. Noir from the Bar features stories by some of the best crime and thriller writers working today (plus me).

And I’m still plugging away at the second part of my thriller series, The Sarcophagus Scroll. Part two is called Daughters of Fire. Most of my research trips for this novel were cancelled, so I’m fantasizing about some sort of Grand Tour of Europe next summer, virus allowing.

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 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. 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).

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 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 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 near Glasgow, Scotland, where in between writing I do a lot of Albanian interpreting.
