David Moody's picture

David Moody

UK flag (b.1970)

David Moody was born and grew up in Birmingham on a diet of trashy horror and pulp science fiction books and movies. He worked as a bank manager and as operations manager for a number of financial institutions before giving up the day job to write about the end of the world for a living. He has written a number of horror novels, including Autumn, which has been downloaded more than half a million times since publication in 2001 and has spawned a series of sequels and a movie starring Dexter Fletcher and David Carradine. Film rights to Hater have been bought by Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy, Pan's Labyrinth) and Mark Johnson (producer of the Chronicles of Narnia films). Moody lives outside Birmingham with his wife and a houseful of daughters and stepdaughters, which may explain his pre-occupation with Armageddon.

David Moody recommends
Roses of Blood On Barbwire Vines (2007)
D L Snell
"Violent and visceral...beautiful and erotic."
Torment (2011)
(Infinite Timeline, book 9)
Jeremy Robinson
"TORMENT is a nightmarish descent through Armageddon. With barely a pause for breath, Bishop drags you out of normality, straight into the depths of a devastated post-apocalyptic landscape. Surreal and extraordinary locations, grotesque characters and outlandish events rise up from the devastated ashes of the familiar in this startlingly original horror novel. Dreamlike, disturbing and never predictable, once you start reading, you won't want to put it down."
Remains of the Dead (2011)
(Of The Dead, book 2)
Iain McKinnon
"Believable characters trapped in a nightmare scenario - REMAINS OF THE DEAD is a breathless, high-octane zombie thriller. [McKinnon has] written another great book here..."
Animal Kingdom (2011)
Iain Rob Wright
"Iain Rob Wright is sick and twisted."
The Last Outpost (2015)
(Last, book 2)
Rich Hawkins
"One of the most intriguing post-apocalyptic novels I've read in a long time."
The Man From Taured (2020)
(World's Scariest Legends, book 3)
Jeremy Bates
"An ice-cold thriller full of mystery, suspense, fear."
The Children of Red Peak (2020)
Craig DiLouie
"DiLouie really knows how to simultaneously shatter nerves and break hearts. The Children of Red Peak is a genuinely unsettling psychological horror novel, a story where faith and fear combine to destroy innocence and devastate lives. Intense, compulsive, thought-provoking, and highly recommended."
