Mandi S. Lockley – The Box
Mandi S. Lockley lives in London with her husband and two cats. She grew up in the foggy, post-industrial English Midlands where she watched too many scary movies from behind a cushion and slept with the light on. Nowadays she spends much of her spare time watching horror films in the dark and reading and writing genre fiction. She has also written extensively on the fascinating but contentious subject of astrology and has been published online, in e-book format and in journals and magazines and has even written about the astrology of horror. The Box is her first published work of fiction.
