About the Author

Rebecca Lloyd writes short stories, novellas and the occasional novel. Most of her stories are about misfits bewildered by life’s expectations and trapped in their own limitations. Some stories could be described as psychological horror and others as magic realism, and from time to time she writes about ghostly things. What interests her most is the inventive ways we deal with what life throws at us, and the ability many of us have to slip between our invented worlds and the shared world, as if travelling back and forth down a long worn path. Since 2014, literary awards in which Rebecca has been short-listed include The World Fantasy Award and the Aestas Short Story Prize. Her most recent published work includes her novel Oothangbart, (Pillar International Publishing), and four short story collections, Mercy and Other Stories, (Tartarus Press), The View from Endless Street, (WiDo Publishing), Ragman and Other Family Curses, (Egaeus Press) and Seven Strange Stories, (Tartarus Press). Her stories have been reprinted in Best British Horror (Salt Publishing), Best New Horror (PS Publishing) and Best Horror of the Year, Volume nine with Ellen Datlow. She has also written two novellas, Jack Werrett, the Flood Man, (Dunhams Manor Press) and Woolfy and Scrapo, (The Fantasist Magazine). She is presently working on a Gothic horror novel set in 1850.
