C J Wright
I have had a fascination with all sorts of horror fiction since childhood, and it has been the driving force of my desire to write.  After meeting Sue Townsend, the author of the Adrian Mole books, at the age of eight, I longed to be a writer. I write horror novels for both adults and More...
