Despite forays into the mundane worlds of law and IT, Dave Higgins has been unable to escape the liminal zone between fantasy and horror.

Born in the least mystically significant part of Wiltshire, England, and raised by a librarian, he started reading shortly after birth and hasn’t stopped since. He lives with his wife, two cats, a plush altar to Cthulhu, and many shelves of books.

It’s rumoured he writes out of fear he will otherwise run out of books to read.

Being an honourable chap, he changed his name, moved to another part of the country, and never mentioned what his previous name had been.

Depending on which genre one chooses, there's potential for a literary piece about the protagonist's search for his ancestors and the impact of it on them, a thriller about the severance actually being due to some other reason, or a more urban fantasy/science-fiction/horror piece based around finding the last survivor of a lineage with a specific trait (or exterminating them).(less)
