Karen Swan began her career in fashion journalism before giving it all up to raise her three children and a puppy, and to pursue her ambition of becoming a writer. She lives in the forest in Sussex, writing her books in a treehouse overlooking the Downs. Her books include Christmas at Tiffany's, Christmas in the Snow, The Paris Secret, Christmas Under the Stars, The Rome Affair and The Christmas Secret.
Seeing the northern lights has always been a dream of Karen's. Sadly she didn't see them when she travelled to Norway to research this book but it means she has the perfect excuse to keep going back.
