When he was six years old, Patrick Moody saw The Creature From the Black Lagoon on late-night television, which sparked a life long love of all things horror, fantasy, and science fiction. He also grew up next to a graveyard, which probably helped.

Patrick is the author of numerous short stories, ranging from adult horror to Middle Grade fantasy. His work has appeared in several journals and magazines, including Folio, Dark Moon Digest, Massacre, America’s Emerging Fantasy and Science Fiction Writers 2019, and featured on the podcasts Campfire Radio and The Wicked Library.

His first novel, The Gravedigger’s Son, illustrated by Graham Carter, is available now from Sky Pony Press.

He and his wife live in Connecticut with a mischievous trio of cats and one cuddly hedgehog.
