About the Author

Will Hill

Will Hill spends a lot of his time in California but he grew up around the North East of England, moving from Skegness to Gateshead to Tynemouth. The area is steeped in vampire mythology, irresistible to the young Will. He turned this fascination into a highly accomplished debut. Action hungry lovers of horror and adventure will love it.
