Karen Andrews is an award-winning writer and author. Her work interrogates, and celebrates, the nuances of creativity while balancing contemporary family life. She does this on her popular blog (karenandrews.com.au) and her podcast The Creative Life. She is a regular contributor to publications throughout the country and when she isn’t she writing is obsessing about where to travel next in the world and how she’s going to store her massive book collection.
Karen Andrews is an award-winning writer for her short story writing and poetry. She is the author of Crying in the Car: Reflections on Life and Motherhood (2012), children’s picture book Surprise! (2008) and the editor/publisher of the critically acclaimed anthology Miscellaneous Voices: Australian Blog Writing #1 (2010), which was the first trade release book of its kind in Australia.
She has been blogging at her website (karenandrews.com.au) – and formerly known as ‘Miscellaneous Mum’ – since 2006, making her one of the country’s most established and respected parenting/personal bloggers. She lives in Melbourne with her family, but grew up in a small country town on the mid-north coast of New South Wales. An early passion for Gothic Literature saw her pursuing this interest through a Masters thesis, but this is just a facet of her voracious reading tastes. Instilling a similar apprecation of reading and books in her children (and others) is one of her lifetime goals.
