Award-winning author Simon Clark has more than twenty horror novels to his credit. Many have won phenomenal cult followings world-wide, and enjoy brisk rights sales. Blood Crazy continues to be reprinted in English and foreign language editions, and is optioned for film. Vampyrrhic brings visitors to North Yorkshire to explore its atmospheric locations. The Night of the Triffids (winner of a British Fantasy Society award) continues the story of John Wyndham’s celebrated novel, The Day of the Triffids. Simon has also written for BBC Radio 4 and contributed to popular magazines and anthologies. He lives in his native Yorkshire with his wife and children.


Simon Clark was raised in a household of story-tellers. Family legends tell of a human skull buried in the back garden. Simon’s father, a history teacher, would point out innocuous looking fields that were the sites of battles and other momentous events, so Simon grew up knowing that there are fascinating stories to be found beneath the surface of ordinary places.


He confesses to wanting to become an author from an early age. ‘I lived in a little Yorkshire village far away from the world of publishing. Yet I longed to become a writer -- stories flowed in my veins, or so it seemed to me. Tantalizingly, on my newspaper round, lived a husband and wife writing team. It was such an amazing occupation that I peeked through the letterbox as I delivered their papers. The female half of the team later worked for a famous women’s magazine. I sold five stories to her before I plucked up the courage to reveal that I was once her paperboy.


‘Being a writer is an extraordinary career. I love telling stories for a living. It’s also led to fascinating journeys across the world. I’ve been guest of honour at conferences in the States, and given readings at literary festivals. A memorable talk was to a room full of serial killers in a maximum security prison. I’m six foot five but I was still perturbed when the prison guards sat quite some distance from me and my eager audience.’
