Dave Higgins writes speculative fiction, often with a dark edge. Despite forays into the mundane worlds of law and IT, he was unable to completely escape the liminal zone between mystery and horror. A creature of contradictions, he also co-writes comic sci-fi with Simon Cantan.

Born in the least mystically significant part of Wiltshire, England, and raised by a librarian, he started reading shortly after birth and has not stopped since. He currently lives in Bristol with his wife, Nicola, his cats, Jasper and Una, a plush altar to the Dark Lord Cthulhu, and many shelves of books.

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)
