Karen Bowman - Author with a Passion for History

Karen Bowman is an author with a life long passion for history and the powerful characters, who have shaped our society over the centuries. Be they high-born or commoner, witch, queen, vagabond or king, her home county of Essex has provided British life with many of its most colourful and influential people. In her books, Essex Girls and Essex Boys Karen brings them all to life with her highly readable style of writing coupled with an instinctive sense of time and place!

Her latest work, Corsets & Codpieces,chronicles the sartorial history of the more outrageous fashions in our history, from those who wore them, newspapers that featured them, politicians who legislated against them and, as in the case of 'monstrous' crinolines the husbands and fathers who had to pay for them!

Karen's writing credits also include numerous magazines, articles, and short stories.
