About Karla Forbes


Welcome to my website and thanks for taking the time to read about me.

I first began writing books when I was twelve years old. Heavily influenced by Ian Fleming, I wrote about guns, fast cars and spies. Naturally, I knew nothing of my chosen subject and was forced to use my imagination to make it up as I went along. These books, half a dozen in total, ended up being thrown out with the rubbish. Several years later, I dabbled in a futuristic sitcom and a full length horror story. Although both of these efforts were also consigned to literary oblivion, at least, no one could have accused me of being in a genre rut.

I began writing properly more than ten years ago. Twelve of my books are available to download from the Amazon kindle book store and other books will follow at regular intervals.  I write about ordinary people, like you or me perhaps, who find themselves in extraordinary situations and I aim for unusual but scarily believable plots with a surprising twist.

I live in Sussex with my husband and a huge bullmastiff and I’ve found that the secret of keeping them both happy is regular meals, praise and affection. On account of the other half being German, we split our time between the UK and Germany where our favourite haunts are the Harz mountains and Bavaria.

I hope you enjoy reading my books as much as I enjoyed writing them. Whether good, bad or indifferent, I love receiving your feedback so please feel free to email me via the website or place a review on the Amazon Kindle bookstore. If you like what you read, please spread the word. If you don’t like what you read, please let me know and I’ll try to do better next time.

My thanks go to the following people –

Pam for endless proofreading, constant support and nagging when required.

Richard and Stuart for the book covers and Stuart for the website

Betty for encouragement and useful writing tips gleaned from her days at Hodder and lastly

Rainer for never complaining despite having a wife who would rather write about terrorism than bake cakes.

Love to you all
