About Cara Fox
Cara Fox is an English author, editor and freelance journalist trying to write her way out of the dark. Inspired by authors such as Mary Shelley, Daphne du Maurier, Bram Stoker and Jules Verne, and also her Eastern European heritage, she favours steampunk, horror and Gothic romance, but you can find her anywhere that the stories sink their claws into you and the wine flows freely. Her work has been featured in the Tales To Terrify podcast and in anthologies from Lycan Valley Press, Fluky Fiction, Left Hand Publishers, all the sins and Horror Addicts, and she is currently working on her debut novel, The Strange Case of Doctor Magorian.
When not writing, Cara can be found spending time with her two daughters, studying towards her English Literature degree or getting involved with British politics. In what little free time remains, she enjoys heavy metal and rock music, watching obscure horror movies with her husband and curating a collection of antique poetry.
Cara has limited mobility as the result of a highly thrilling incident involving firefighters, forgotten keys and a misplaced hero complex, which is a tale for another time. This influences her work with themes of mortality and pain often running throughout the twisted tales she writes, but she refuses to allow it to hold her back.

Foreword by award winning author J.H. Moncrieff.
Imagine a slight change to our historical timeline where the Industrial Revolution heated up much quicker than expected. Technological marvels such as airships, trains, battleships, and submarines came into being much earlier. They were followed by steam-powered wonders such as mechanical men, flying ships, and even crafts capable of reaching the deepest fathoms of the sea or traveling to distant celestial orbs.
That is the world where Sherlock Holmes and his Boswell, Dr. Watson find themselves in Sherlock Holmes: Adventures in the Realms of Steampunk.
Tales of a Retro Future - Volume one of the anthology features stories with a focus on steampunk inventions. See airships cloud the skies, robotic swans on the attack, and apparatuses appear to raise the dead:

However, when a mysterious prophecy leads the enigmatic ringmaster, Ignatius Demorte, to set his sights on her, Rosa will have to fight not only against monsters who rock the very foundations of her world, but against something far harder to defy – the temptation to let seductive darkness devour her in every possible way.
HorrorAddicts.net is proud to present fourteen tales of murderous music, demonic performers, and cursed audiophiles.
Cara Fox's first vampire novella for Memento Mori Publications is an outstanding debut. Dark, ethereal and wickedly sexy, the simmering undercurrent of danger running throughout is everything a vampire romance should be.
