Demi-Louise Blackburn is a dark fiction author from West Yorkshire, England.
Most of Demi’s childhood was spent reading and getting lost inside her own imagination, so it wasn’t too long before she began to write as a hobby. Whilst studying English Literature at college, Demi discovered she was particularly fond of horror and speculative fiction, and much of her work began to explore darker themes because of this. She went on to study Sociology at Leeds University, and signed on for a Creative Writing module in her final year to try and rekindle her love of writing.
After graduating and settling into a job in administration, writing became a constant source of enjoyment and escape. With support from friends and family, Demi finally decided to try and send work out for publication in 2020. Since then, some of her short stories have found homes with Kandisha Press, All Worlds Wayfarer and Ghost Orchid Press. She continues to chip away at numerous other projects whilst juggling her day job.
When not wrapped up in her next writing venture, you can most likely find Demi settled down with a nature documentary, listening to true crime podcasts, or dabbling in a new art project. She loves music, horror films, and collecting taxidermy insects. In the summer, she likes to attend music festivals, take trips out to the coast, and walk down the riverbanks surrounding her home.
