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.

Author of the award short-listed “The Fog”, her fiction and non-fiction work has appeared or is forthcoming in magazines including BFS Horizons, Horrified, and the anthologies LISTEN, Bloody Good Horror, and Duplicitous.

Lauren also founded London’s first horror film guided walks, some of which form her upcoming book Death Lines: Walking London Through Horror Cinema, coming out with Strange Attractor Press in 2022. More on her work, including academic writing, and reviews can be found on the Writing page

She has shared her knowledge and love of London’s horror movies through her own monthly podcast, the London Horror Movie Club, as well as walks and talks with London City of the Dead, viewpoints on Placecloud, and a guest spot on A Year in Horror.
