Morven Westfield is the author of a series of vampire novels set in
the late 70s/early 80s in New England. Morven regularly contributes
non-fictional articles on the supernatural and folklore,
and occasionally writes paranormal/horror/fantasy short stories.
Fascinated by the supernatural from an early age, she started writing the first sentences of her novel Darksome Thirst during
lulls in activity as a second-shift computer operator many years ago.
This unusual tale combining vampires and Wiccans and computers (oh, my!)
was followed by the sequel, The Old Power Returns.
She is a former member of the Motherboard 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. She also
served as the Webmaster for New England Horror Writers.
A frequent attendee of local science fiction/fantasy/horror
conventions, in her spare time she hosts and produces a podcast called Vampires, Witches, & Geeks.
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.
