Jennet Preston was an ordinary woman, with an extraordinary death. Pursued and vilified by her young lord and master, Thomas Lister, she was accused and tried – twice – for Murder by Witchcraft in 1612. This is the story of her second trial.

A friend of the Device family of Malkin Tower, Jennet Preston’s story starts and ends in Yorkshire, yet is inextricably entwined with the most famous witch trial in British history – that of the Pendle Witches.

Inspired by the treacherous true events surrounding the Pendle Witch Trials, Murder by Witchcraft is a gripping historical short story, written with honesty and passion. Perfect for fans of Katherine Clements, Stacey Halls, Kiran Millwood Hargrave and Caroline Lea.

“The queen of this era, bar none” – Timothy Smith.

“Ms Perkins is a true artist of the spoken word” – Author JJ Toner

“Fantastically creepy ghost story” – Author Lee Franklin

“Karen Perkins is an excellent author and puts you right inside the Yorkshire Dales” – Mike McManus,

“Fantastic, atmospheric, tantalizing, and edge of your seat read”

Karen Perkins – Karen’s latest release, DIVIDED BY WITCHCRAFT, is the second in a new series of historical fiction short stories examining the frenzy of witch hunting that swept the north of England in the late 16th and early 17th centuries – including the most famous, that of the Pendle Witches in 1612.

Karen Perkins is the author of the Yorkshire Ghost Stories, the Pendle Witch Short Stories and the Valkyrie Series of historical nautical fiction. Her fiction has appeared at the top of bestseller lists on both sides of the Atlantic, including the top 21 in the UK Kindle Store in 2018.

Her first Yorkshire Ghost Story – THE HAUNTING OF THORES-CROSS – won the Silver Medal for European Fiction in the prestigious 2015 Independent Publisher Book Awards in New York, whilst her Valkyrie novel, DEAD RECKONING, was long-listed in the 2011 MSLEXIA novel competition.

Originally a financial advisor, a sailing injury left Karen with a chronic pain condition (although she did take the European ladies title despite the injury!). Writing has given her a new lease of – and purpose to – life, and she is currently working on a sequel to Parliament of Rooks: Haunting Brontë Country, as well as the next Pendle Witch story.

Karen Perkins is a member of the Society of Authors, the Writers’ Guild of Great Britain and the Horror Writers Association.

Currently working on:

THE WITCH HUNTER OF PENDLE and A QUESTION OF WITCHCRAFT: Ghosts of Haworth, book 2. Release dates tba.
