I’ve been blogging since 2009, back in those days when the internet was just starting to take over our lives and we were moving everything online. These days you’ll find me at Karlie Parker Author, but I still update this ICONIC site.
This lifestyle blog takes you on a journey through my creative thoughts, life in Edinburgh and London, my dating life, my digital marketing and journalist career history, motherhood and more recently Yoga Teaching. The name is a nod to finding and understanding myself, at times in my life when I needed to know!
But, more than anything, it acts as a kind of social diary of the time – I even wrote a post about selfies! There’s film reviews, thoughts about being a writer, events reviews, spanning my 30’s to my 40’s, a whole ten years of my life online and digitised.
It’s my own personal directory and yours to enjoy, comment, like and share!

But with her meddling Nana intend on helping her, will the course of love ever run smoothly? The Seacolme Cottage series has four books, Summer, Autumn and Spring. I’m currently working on two further fiction books and hope to have these published in summer 2023.
