“He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone…”
John 8:7 KJV
Appalachian Author of Dark Fiction, Poetry, Young Adult and Children’s books
A life-long resident of Kanawha County of West Virginia, London is a proud mother of two young ladies and grandmother of one sweet little girl.
A 2018 graduate of West Virginia State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology and a minor in Criminal Justice. As well as a 2016 graduate of Bridge Valley CTC with an Associate degree in Gen Ed- Arts and a certificate in Applied Science.
Always having a passion for writing and things that go bump in the night, at age 13, she was awarded a full scholarship for a College Writing Program at the University of Charleston. In addition, she has done ghostwriting for private individuals, and college professors have requested to use her presentations in their lectures.
Although having the Christian faith, which you will often see Biblical references in her work, she still leans toward seeking the truth of dark and scary things as a primarily dark fiction writer. She goes on to say, “Ignorance is what we should truly fear the most.”
London has been published in different anthologies from 1995 to 2022. Trapper Keeper is a short story written by London and is based on the Braxton County Monster, which was published fall of 2022 in the Dead Heat anthology by Crimson Pinnacle Press. She is also proud to announce they have also published her story, The Mud Witch of Dogtown, in another anthology, The Season of the Witch.
London’s latest book, published in 2022, is a young adult, dark fiction titled, The Tibbar. The story takes place in Coalsmouth, which is a previous name for the city of Saint Albans, WV. The creature on the cover was drawn by Hollywood Prop Master Kelly Farrah from The Walking Dead, Pirates of the Caribbean, Last of the Mohicans, Gettysburg, and many more.
When London’s first grandchild was born, she realized how blessed they were to have five living generations. Therefore, she wrote a poetic children’s book titled Baby Gen based on the females in her family. Baby Gen was published in 2022 with a rave review by Hollywood Actress Melanie Kinnaman.
The Appalachian Cryptid-Tales was a commemorative booklet she created for a WV Paranormal Tourism Convention held in Beckley, WV, in April 2022. There are limited copies, only available through her.
She also published two horror books in 2021. Masked Mayhem – Maladies has seven creepy poems and seven chilling tales that take place during a pandemic.
Also published in 2021, which was co-written with David Musser, is The Last Call. That story is about seven strangers who mysteriously end up in a bar having to answer for their sins.
