Anya J. Davis – Crow Bait

Anya J. Davis is a freelance copywriter and editor by day, spending her most of her time lost in a world of product descriptions and blog posts or growling about misused apostrophes. When darkness falls, she can be found sipping a glass of wine, listening to Skinny Puppy and Fields of the Nephilim, and writing tales of terror in a vain attempt at therapy to cure herself of her nightmares.

A graduate of the Open University, with a BA (Hons.) in Humanities including Literature, Anya lives in Devon, in the South West of England.

Anya is currently working on a collection of short horror stories and a novel.

Untoten!, Last Diner, Deadman’s Tales and Cadavers as well as the future Distorted Perceptions anthology by Death Throes Publishing.
She also dabbles in poetry (printed in local and national press) and has recently distorted a number of favourite childhood nursery rhymes into something darker and more sinister, these can be found on her own website.
Her own taste in reading varies widely from Terry Pratchett, to Bernard Cornwell to current favourite Neil Gaiman – and oh yes, Stephen King and Edgar Allan Poe also get a look in.

Alexandra Niculae – Survivor

Alexandra Niculae PicAlexandra Niculae – or “Dodo” as most people know her (no connection to the prehistoric feathered dinosaur whatsoever) – is a Romanian writer of haunting horror, fearsome fantasy and scary SF tales. She doesn’t shy away from the occasional venomous verse and has a knack for awesome alliterations.

She is a rapacious reader and thinks that the more books one devours, the more difficult it is to fabricate fresh fiction, as there are countless creative cerebrums out there. Nevertheless, as Stephen King says, “If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others: read a lot and write a lot.”

The 1972 movie “Horror Express” sparked Dodo’s love for all things thrilling and the fact that she comes from the land of the dashing, dazzling, deeply desirable Dracula worked in her favour as well. In her free time she enjoys a game of Scrabble, taking pictures of buildings in ruin and vividly visualizing venturesome vampires.
