Karen Dodd writes suspense novels set against the lush backdrops of Italy, Malta, and beyond. She is the author of the award-winning novel Scare Away the Dark, the second book in her Moretti Stone Crime Thriller series. If you like heart-stopping plot twists, complex characters, and delicious suspense, you are in the right place!
Having traveled extensively, Karen was inspired to set her Stone Suspense and Nicolo Moretti Crime Thriller series in two of the most beautiful places in the world: Italy and Malta. The food, the scenery, the people—did she mention the food?!
She inherited her voracious reading habit as an only child who immigrated with her family from the UK to Canada. Today, she and her husband live in a tiny seaside village on the west coast of British Columbia, Canada, along with a highly demanding Ragdoll cat named Bello. And yes, he’s Italian—the cat, not the husband.
