Cara Fox is an English author, editor and freelance journalist trying to write her way out of the dark. Inspired by authors such as Mary Shelley, Daphne du Maurier, Bram Stoker and Jules Verne, and also her Eastern European heritage, she favours steampunk, horror and Gothic romance, but you can find her anywhere that the stories sink their claws into you and the wine flows freely. Her work has been featured in the Tales To Terrify podcast and in anthologies from publishers such as Fluky Fiction, Left Hand Publishers and Owl Hollow Press.

When not writing, Cara can be found spending time with her two daughters, studying towards her English Literature degree or getting involved with British politics. In what little free time remains, she enjoys heavy metal and rock music, watching obscure horror movies with her husband, and curating collections of antique poetry and unusual snowglobes.

Cara has limited mobility as the result of a highly thrilling incident involving firefighters, forgotten keys and a misplaced hero complex, which is a tale for another time. This influences her work with themes of mortality and pain often running throughout the twisted tales she writes, but she refuses to allow it to hold her back.
