Karen Lee Street is a long time Londoner, now living in Australia. She spent her earliest years in an old Pennsylvania farmhouse with far too many things that went bump in the night, memories of which bring a touch of the Gothic to her writing.

Her critically acclaimed historical mysteries follow the adventures of Edgar Allan Poe and C. Auguste Dupin. In Edgar Allan Poe & the London Monster, set in London 1840, the sleuthing duo investigate a true 18th century crime and its aftermath. Edgar Allan Poe & the Jewel of Peru sees the duo reunite in Philadelphia, 1844 to unravel a mystery involving old enemies, lost soul-mates, ornithomancy, and the legendary jewel of Peru. Edgar Allan Poe and the Empire of the Dead takes place in Paris, 1849 and is a tale of alchemy, mesmerism and magic, the shadows of the past and the endurance of love. It will be published in October 2019.

Other books by Karen include Writing and Selling Crime Film Screenplays a ‘how to’ book based on her experience working in the feature film industry and Tattoos and Motorcycles, a collection of interconnected short stories set in small town America.
