Historian, Author and Speaker– Karen Bowman.

Karen Bowman is the writer’s equivalent of a magpie, her beady eye alert for the oddest of details and the weirdest of facts… New York Times

If you are looking for an accomplished author to deftly walk you through our history, then look no further. Karen’s passion for history and writing produce a formidable combination of culture and social history. Skilfully weaved stories and razor-sharp protagonists are the trademark characteristics, whilst wandering shrewdly through our past.

Having written for many publications including, ‘Best of British’ and ‘Essex Life and Countryside,’ one article organically evolved into her first book – Essex Girls. Now an acclaimed author, Karen is meticulous in her research and driven by the jewels of our past. Perfectly drawn, three dimensional characters steeped in rich history dance across the pages. Her most cherished feedback?

“Well, I never knew that…”

As well as being a published author and historian, Karen brings her love of history to life giving popular talks, some of which are in beautiful period costume. Well researched history based topics include: costume, women, maritime, medicine and, of course, her books.
