Karina Machado was born in Uruguay and was 2 when her family moved to Australia, where she grew up hearing stories of her mum’s psychic gift, igniting a life-long curiosity about the paranormal. Passionate about books and writing since she taught herself to read with Golden Books, Karina always knew she had to “work with words.” She began her career in journalism as editorial assistant at TIME magazine in 1994, and is now a senior editor at WHO magazine. She’s also obsessed with the Tudors, and has been known to dress up as Anne Boleyn, whose ghost she’s sadly never seen.

Karina lives in Sydney with her husband, two children and—she’s been told—the odd apparition.
