Morven Westfield writes supernatural, fantasy, and horror fiction. She also regularly writes non-fiction articles on the supernatural and folklore and is a freelance technical writer.
The author of a series of vampire novels set in the late 70s/early 80s in New England, she started writing the first sentences of Darksome Thirst during lulls in activity as a second-shift computer operator. She followed up this unusual tale combining vampires and Wiccans and computers (oh, my!) with the sequel The Old Power Returns. Morven also hosted and produced a podcast called Vampires, Witches, & Geeks, which is still available for listening online.
She is a member and former Motherboard member of Broad Universe, an international non-profit organization dedicated to promoting, encouraging, honoring, and celebrating women writers and editors in science fiction, fantasy, horror and other speculative genres. Currently a member of and volunteer newsletter proofreader for the Horror Writers Association, she is also an active member of the New England Horror Writers, at one time serving as their webmaster.
Fascinated by the supernatural from an early age, she lives in Massachusetts with her husband, a pragmatist who is mildly amused by his wife’s interest in things that go bump in the night. One of these days she’ll have cats again.
