Darcy Coates's picture

Darcy Coates

Darcy Coates is an Amazon bestseller and award-winning author. She loves haunted houses, ancient graveyards, mysteries and suspense - and her books reflect all of these passions.

She lives on the Central Coast of Australia. When she's not writing you can usually find her on a bushwalk, spending all day in the library or researching local urban legends.

Her favourite author is Stephen King, but she's also a fan of Shirley Jackson, Mark Z. Danielewski, Beth Massie and Barbara Michaels.

Darcy co-habitates with three cats and two humans. As much as she would like a fourth cat, she knows that would be treading dangerously close to crazy-cat-lady territory.

Genres: Horror

Darcy Coates recommends
It Will Just Be Us (2020)
Jo Kaplan
"Jo Kaplan's novel It Will Just Be Us is a triumph of gothic fiction. Haunting and addictive, the evocative language leads the reader along a deliciously horrifying path to an ending we both dread and wait for with held breath. A must-read for horror fans."
The Haunting of Brynn Wilder (2020)
Wendy Webb
"Evocative and beautifully haunting, Wendy Webb’s latest transports you to a location you’ll soon want to call home, in a story you won’t want to put down. It’s no exaggeration to call this the standout gothic novel of the year."
