Author has written 11 stories for Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Historical, Horror, Thriller, and Mystery.

Hi, I'm Katie and I'm a 25 year old writer from England :)

I've been writing for as long as I can remember, which sounds a bit of a cliche but hey. I've experimented with different genres but my favourites to write in are science-fiction and horror. I have quite a few projects set in the same sci-fi universe. I also enjoy historical fiction as I have a big love for history and am currently studying it at University.

I’m inspired by many books and movies. My inspirations came from Lovecraft and other classic horror writers, as well as sci-fi authors like Arthur C. Clarke. I also love movies like Alien, The Thing, 2001, and many things set in space haha.

Blud by HDT1854 reviews
SAMUEL GRADY is alone. Isolation seems necessary to finish his novel, and his cousin hooks him up with a lonely cliff-top cabin with no electricity. It's perfect, until his obsessions with his secretive landlord, his landlord's cycloptic manservant, and the blood which streams down the cabin's windows entirely unseat his cozy reality.
