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.

Darcy Coates recommends
thumb
Ghost Station (2024)
S A Barnes
"Ghost Station is everything I could want in a horror story and more. Barnes became one of my favorite authors with Dead Silence and this is a stunning follow-up. Highly recommended."
thumb
Bless Your Heart (2024)
(Bless Your Heart, book 1)
Lindy Ryan
"Gory, spine-chilling, and deeply Southern, Bless Your Heart is a women-led fight against the rising dead. An absolute must-read for anyone who likes their horror with bite."
thumb
No Child of Mine (2023)
Nichelle Giraldes
"No Child of Mine is a hauntingly powerful, equal parts a ghost story and a tale of what we are prepared to do for love."
