New Teen Novel From Local Author.
What begins as a 13-year-old boy’s attempt to throw off his blues turns into an adventure of friendship and self-discovery, in local author Karen Cossey’s newest book, The Trespasser.
Karen has written for more than 10 years as part of Tauranga Writers for Children group.
She says writing is a passion.
“I love to sit down and create stories that people will enjoy, stories that leave them with a smile on their face.”
Karen juggles her writing in between working in her family business and at Tauranga Budget Advisory Service.
“My two teenage kids keep me busy as well,” she says.
“They’re great for inspiration for my stories though.”
