About the Author

Catherine McCarthy grew up in the industrial valleys of South Wales where she went on to teach in primary education for almost three decades. Having been 'shown the light' by her mother, who had the tradition of oral storytelling down to a fine art, she quickly developed an insatiable appetite for all things literary. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Catherine McCarthy spins dark yarns that deliver a sting in the tail.

She is the author of the collections Door and other twisted tales and Mists and Megaliths. Her latest release, Immortelle, is a Gothic tale of grief and revenge, set on the West Wales coast.

Her short stories and flash fiction have been published in various places online and in anthologies, including those by Brigids Gate Press, Gallery for the Curious, Dark Recesses Press and Black Spot Books.

In 2020 she won the Aberystwyth University Prize for creative writing for her magical realism story, The Queen’s Attendant.

When she is not writing, she may be found walking the Welsh coast path or huddled among ancient gravestones reading Machen or Poe.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hauntingly beautiful, enticing and devouring
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on October 2, 2021
Immortelle by Catherine McCarthy was recommended to me by a friend who knew my love of gothic and quiet horror. I went into this book not quite knowing what to expect but with great expectations: I was not disappointed. It's hauntingly beautiful, enticing and devouring.

Set in a rural Welsh coastal town the story centres around Elinor, a ceramic artist, and her daughter Rowena. When Rowena is found poisoned dead, Elinor's suspicions fall upon the parish priest.

The tale is told with such depth of emotion, sumptuous language, and composure that the reader is swept into the pages with no care for the outside world. Utterly immersive, the story haunted me for days after, clinging to my ribs, in both horror and dark delight.

A joy to read, and no doubt a novella I will revisit overtime just to submerge myself in the sublime prose once again. I'm looking forward to reading more by Catherine McCarthy.
