About Me

Karen Bayly is a writer, software tester, and author of the steampunk novel Fortitude.  Her PhD in biology and her research background both inform her writing, a fusion of science fiction, horror, and fantasy. A devotee of nature, Karen is often found lying on the grass in her backyard, watching birds, or staring at the stars. She lives in Sydney, Australia with two cats, a guitar, and a ukulele.
