The Alternatives

Riding a silver thread


My name’s Karen Eastland. Originally from Perth, Western Australia, now living in Tasmania. With a BA in Culture and Ancient History (2017), and an MLitt (2019) I am endeavoring to publish quality stories.

I made an experimental movie in 2017, it can be seen by clicking this link:  Jerrymanders and released the first of a series of dark, yet fun, urban fantasies using some Greek myth, and many of the characters of old. The is first two trilogies, Josephine Marlin, are set in the Jerrymanders universe, and are part of a much larger story culminating in The Fields of Elysian finale.
