About

The (Short) Official Bio:

Libby Faucette is the author of several horror and dark fantasy short stories. Her works range from twisted fairy tales to science-fiction to Southern Gothic, but (almost) without exception, at some point they will take a turn into terrible, horrible, no good, very bad things. She lives in eastern North Carolina with her husband and her son, plus three dogs who like to drag home dead things and leave them in the yard.

The (Longer) Chatty Bio:

True story: I was born on Halloween night on Gallows Road.

I have been a little warped ever since.

I write scary stories. I seem to be wired with what King calls “a love of the night and the unquiet coffin.” I collect the morbid, the macabre, the grotesque, the spooky, the strange, and the just plain weird, like some deeply unsettling magpie, and invariably those things will find their way into my fiction.

I live with my (long-suffering, patient, and extremely good-humored) husband and son on a farm in eastern North Carolina, USA. I have three dogs: a sweet-natured Labrador; a full-throttle beagle/coonhound mix that really¬†does bring home dead things and decaying (animal) body parts on a regular basis; and a Lab/bull mastiff mix that does NOT like strangers. (Seriously, the BEWARE OF DOG signs are there for a reason. He’s quiet. And sneaky. You have been warned.)

That said, feel free to connect with me! He hasn’t figured out how to get on the Internet yet.

NOTE: I’m in the process of updating this website; things are very bare bones at the moment and a bit of a mess. You can reach me at emfaucettee[at]gmail[dot]com. I am also rather behind right now, so it may take me a while to reply, but reply I will.
