Karen Mahoney gave up on her dreams of being Wonder Woman a long time ago, but has instead settled for being a writer of urban fantasy. She has been published alongside some of her favourite authors, in anthologies like THE ETERNAL KISS and KISS ME DEADLY. She is still in complete shock about this. Karen's debut YA novel, THE IRON WITCH, will be published by Corgi in 2011. She lives in London, though she dreams of one day living in Boston.
