Who are you?

Kara Simsek is not my real name – it’s what they call Knight Rider in Turkey. For me, it’s merely one of many pseudonyms I have used throughout my career and the one I like the most. Apricotte Gold never stuck, and my real name is lousy.

I’m a London-based freelance journalist always on the look out for commissions and more. I specialise in writing about music and the arts, but my true passion is writing about people with ‘weird’ or ‘unconventional’ lifestyles. I’m good to write for print or online, and am also apt at social media stuff, too.

Lately, I’ve been busying myself watching loads of obscure 1970s horror films and Whitesnake videos on YouTube.  Lucio Fulci and poodle perms? Why not.

    Love your work, Emma/Kara! Just read “You Were Right: Burlesque Sucks.” Was so funny… made me want to cry. Very much lookin’ forward to “So You Think You’re a Hipster” as I know quite a FEW hipsters.

    I bought your:”So you think you’re a hipster?” During my last travel in London. Since I started reading I can’t stop laughing. And I am also learning lots of new English words. I really like the way you write. Compliments!
