About this author

Based in Dallas, Texas, Brian Moreland is the author of supernatural horror novels and short stories. Check out his DEAD OF WINTER, SHADOWS IN THE MIST, THE GIRL FROM THE BLOOD COVEN and THE WITCHING HOUSE, THE DEVIL'S WOODS and THE VAGRANTS.

“Dead of Winter by Brian Moreland is an exceptionally well crafted horror novel that tells a gripping story of dark religious doings, a horrific serial killer, and a sympathetic Inspector, in a dark and fascinating historical setting of 19th century Canada. The atmospherics are outstanding and the story offers plenty of surprises right up to its shocking and violent conclusion. Highly recommended.”

-- Douglas Preston, co-author of The Monster of Florence and Cold Vengeance.
