In the tradition of writing what you know, Lauren Jane Barnett – in the life she’s lived, the books she’s loved, and the films she’s devoured – knows horror. She is the proud author of Death Lines: Walking London’s Horror History, the first walking guide to London’s role in the evolution of horror cinema, which Kim Newman called “the London A to Z horror fans need”.

Lauren’s short horror fiction and non-fiction work in magazines including BFS Horizons, Horrified, Audience Askew and anthologies including Tales of Fear, Superstition, and Doom, LISTEN, and Bloody Good Horror including the award-winning and shortlisted stories “The Fog” and “Error 404”.

She also shares her love of London’s horror movies through the London Horror Movie Club podcast alongside her co-host (and brother), Chris.
