NICK STEAD

Nick Stead is a supernatural horror and dark fantasy author from Huddersfield. He has a lifelong obsession with werewolves so it's no surprise his debut novel is a werewolf story, which he started writing back in 2003, while he was still in his GCSE years at school.

What was originally intended to be a short story quickly grew into ideas not just for a full length novel, but an entire series, and with the realisation of this his dream to one day be published was born. That dream was finally realised in 2015 and he has since brought out the second book, Hunted, and has almost finished drafting the third, which he hopes to have ready for release later this year.

Aside from the Hybrid series, he has also written several short stories which you can read for free on his website, and he has plans for a dark fantasy novel in future, as well as several other horrors.

She is the author of the Primal Progeny series, which focuses on the blood splattered existence of a werewolf pack residing in the UK. The first book in the series, Torment, was released in 2015 and though the series was initially intended to be a trilogy, it has expanded into something bigger and she is currently working on book four. As well as this she is also hard at work on a supernatural tale based around some of her own, real life experiences.

As well as her novels, she also has works published in charity anthologies, and runs an interview series with other werewolf loving creatives on her website. She is also working on a dark fantasy comic and scribbling down ideas for more horror tales featuring folklore tales from around the world.

A huge fan of 80's Action / Horror movies such as The Thing , Aliens , Predator & Die Hard and literary heroes such as Shaun Hutson , Clive Barker. Richard Layman and Brian Lumley, Stuart endeavours to bring an unapologetic cinematic eye to his fiction in the hopes of rekindling his childhood sense of wonder, all whilst blowing through vast amounts of ammunition down his local shooting range.

Stuart currently resides in Glastonbury , UK with his long suffering Wife and man eating Shih-Poo dog "Poppy" where he co-owns a kick ass Viking / Asatru shop, fiercely named "Shield Maiden"
