Thanks so much for coming by! I write weird fiction, fantasy, and literary fiction, with stories appearing in magazines such as The Threepenny Review, Year's Best Weird Fiction, and Beneath Ceaseless Skies. I'm also the author of the Chase & Daniels series of gothic novellas: Harkworth Hall, Leviathan, The Painter's Widow, and A Shining Path. I've self-published two collections, Vacui Magia and Rare Birds, and I have a new vampire series starting called Prima Materia. All my books are available on my website or via Amazon, iBooks, Kobo, and Nook.

I have a thing for women in threes, unusual physiologies, sewing, cats, the 18th century, and the supernatural. A complete list of my publications can be found on my website, where you can sign up for my newsletter.

I'm on Twitter as @ls_johnson and Instagram and TikTok as @monstroushistory.
