"Manchester's answer to Martina Cole"


Mother of four Karen Woods uses her experiences of growing up on a Manchester council estate in her writing. Having left school with no qualifications, Karen spent her formative years raising children and suffering domestic abuse. However a job with Manchester City Council led to a literacy course and, eventually, the desire to write a novel.


Since writing ‘Broken Youth’ Karen has been an inspiration to anyone who has lived on a council estate. Her debut novel was voted number 1 on Waterstone’s Readers reviews in April 2010.


Since then Karen has started “The Laughing Ladies Show” with her friend Julie Kernaghan on 106.6 FM in North Manchester and two local bands (Rainband and Northern Icon) have recorded tracks inspired by Karen’s first novel.


Karen is now working on her third novel “Northern Girls Love Gravy”.
