Read full description of the books:
Karen, after being attacked by a group of classmates, ends up in a coma in this world, and awakens as a fox in another world. She befriends a young man named Mowl who has been accused of being a traitor and is on the run himself. Mowl believes Karen Fox is an arl, a mystical being in the form of an animal. As Karen attempts to help Mowl, her grandmother tries to pull her back to this world.
This was a strange book. It was donated to my library but I chose not to add it to our collection (it's a slightly older title, and just a little weird), mostly because the premise of getting Karen to the other world involved a girl who believed her boyfriend cheated on her with Karen. So she gathered a group of her friends who beat Karen into a coma. I was hoping that Karen would develop some kind of self-confidence in the fantasy world in order to deal with this situation in the real world (view spoiler)[ but that never happened. Karen instead chooses to die in the real world and continue to live, transformed from a fox to a human, in the fantasy world (hide spoiler)]. I almost wished this had been a straight-up fantasy novel, as the initial scenario hinted at something else. I was much more interested in the real world than the fantasy world...

Read information about the authorI was born in Burnley, Lancs (England) and lived not too far from Pendle Hill - the haunt of witches and all manner of strangeness. This may have had an effect on my imagination.
My father was a painter and teacher and my mother was a teacher too. Both were Welsh and this has probably had an impact on my imagination too. The whole family headed for Wales every holiday so that even now Wales is inextricably linked with long car journeys, holidays, family and general happiness.
I still support Wales rather than England in most things, particularly rugby, much to my husband's annoyance. I have one sister (a very good painter), one husband, four children, one (mad) dog, a bearded dragon and eight nieces and nephews. I live in South West London.
I believe passionately that education is a good thing and just wish that mine made more impact on my thinking. I went to Edge End High School then Nelson and Colne Sixth Form College, both in Lancashire. After an uneventful 'gap year' – trying and failing to get to grips with accountancy, retail (the Co-op bra department) and pharmaceuticals ( the pharmacy at Burnley General Hospital,) I went to New College, Oxford to read Philosophy and Theology and then to King's College, Cambridge to learn how to be a teacher. I taught - briefly - before going back to college – this time to Manchester Business School to get an MBA. After that I worked for an oil company as a kind of all-purpose executive person, but left before I learnt anything that might have been useful either to the company or to me.
When I was seven I knew exactly what I wanted to be but I forgot all about it until some time after I had my second baby when I suddenly remembered that I had always wanted to be a writer. I was lucky enough to be on a corporate career break at the time and my broken career never got mended. Writing is the best job I've ever had.
--N. M. Browne was born in the North of England to Welsh parents. This background inspired a fascination with all things Celtic and an interest in how earlier societies survived the bleakness of a northern winter. Ms. Browne lives in London, England and is the author of Hunted (Bloomsbury 2002).
