Hello, my name's Catherine Cavendish and I write horror fiction - frequently with ghostly, supernatural, Gothic and haunted house themes.

My latest novel - THE GARDEN OF BEWITCHMENT - is out now from Flame Tree Press. Historical haunted Gothic horror set in the wilds of the Yorkshire moors - pure Bronte country - with a Bronte theme.

Purely my personal opinion of course but I could live without serial celebrity, so-called, autobiographies and porn posing as erotica but whether I would go so far as to remove them forever? No. Just because they're not for me doesn't mean I should deprive anyone else from reading them. Thanks for asking :)(less)

The Cornish Witches of Saveock

My new novella – The
Malan Witch – takes place in a remote coastal area not unlike Cornwall. It
is peaceful, tranquil – except for the activities of two of the most evil
