Karen Viggers

Karen Viggers is a veterinarian, podcaster, and retired soccer mum. She is also the author of five internationally bestselling novels, her books having sold almost a million copies in France. She writes about lighthouses, country towns, pets and wildlife, forests and mountains, urban families and junior sport. She especially likes to write about modern life and relationships. Being a vet, she can’t help sneaking a few animals into her books. Her latest novel, Sidelines, is a family drama about parents trying to support their kids’ ambitions in sport. But whose success is really at stake here?
