I spent twenty years as an editor in British publishing before fleeing the scene to become a full-time historical romance novelist.

I live next to a magpie-haunted London park, with a supportive husband, two eye-rolling teenagers, and a cat with a history of violence.

Social media

I am on Goodreads infrequently and don’t hang out in any groups. Please note, their ‘ask the author’ facility is kind of useless and I miss questions for months at a time. Maybe it’s me that’s useless. If you have a burning need to know something about my books, the FB group is your best bet.

Find me at the following:

Twitter @kj_charles while it lasts

Facebook in my lovely group KJ Charles Chat

Bluesky @kjcharleswriter.com

Instagram as kjcharlesbooks

Or sign up to the newsletter (fourth tab on the top menu…)

Professional queries

I am represented by Courtney Miller-Callihan at Handspun Literary. Please contact Courtney for writing approaches, rights queries (audio/translation), and all requests to blurb. Direct requests to blurb will go to Courtney anyway. Sorry.

For anything else, you can reach me at kjcharles{at}kjcharleswriter{dot}com.

I’m no longer editing.
