The first author I want to introduce you readers to is Eden Royce. Eden Royce is descended from women who practiced root magic in her native Charleston, South Carolina. She's been a bridal consultant, snake handler and stockbroker, but is now content to write dark fiction about the American South from her home in the English countryside. Featured in her work are the language and traditions of the Gullah Geechee people, descendants of the first slaves brought to the Sea Islands off the coasts of South Carolina and Georgia.
She also writes for Graveyard Shift Sisters, a blog dedicated to purging the Black female horror fan from the margins and Dirge Mag an online magazine of dark culture.
When she’s not writing, she's probably roller-skating, watching quiz shows, or perfecting her signature dish for Masterchef. Sometimes all at once.
