About Me

Hello, my name's Catherine Cavendish and I write horror fiction, frequently reflecting my Gothic influences.

Out now from Kensington-Lyrical, the first in a trilogy - WRATH OF THE ANCIENTS - set in Egypt and Vienna and featuring the sinister Dr. Emeryk Quintillus whose obsession has stayed with him past the grave.

My novels THE DEVIL'S SERENADE and SAVING GRACE DEVINE have been released in new editions by Crossroad Press, as have my novel of the Lancashire Witches - THE PENDLE CURSE - and my novellas, LINDEN MANOR and DARK AVENGING ANGEL.

My other titles include: THE SECOND WIFE, MISS ABIGAIL'S ROOM, THE DEVIL INSIDE HER, THE DEMONS OF CAMBIAN STREET, COLD REVENGE, and IN MY LADY'S CHAMBER.

I live with a longsuffering husband and a delightful black cat who has never forgotten that her species used to be worshipped in ancient Egypt. She sees no reason why that practice should not continue.

Our home is in a rambling building dating back to the mid 18th century, haunted by a friendly ghost, who announces her presence by footsteps, switching lights on and strange phenomena involving the washing machine and the TV.

When not slaving over a hot computer, I enjoy wandering around Neolithic stone circles and visiting old haunted houses.
