Natalie Westgate was born and raised in England. Her love of writing is matched only by her love of shoes.
She has an enjoyment and intrigue of all things unusual – as a child, when others would run away from haunted houses, Natalie would ask her Mom if they could go and stay in one.
In 2005, Natalie took part in NaNoWriMo for the first time and won. Although she decided it would be nice to see daylight occasionally and put her 51,018 words aside until she finished university.
She enjoys reading dark and urban fantasy, supernatural romance, horror, sci-fi and paranormal young adult genres. When she isn’t reading or writing about the unusual, she’s watching fictional supernatural TV series and movies – to Natalie, good writing isn’t limited only to books.
Natalie got married in August 2010 to Brian, the love of her life who, being American, just loves to point out her English spelling “mistakes”. They have two cats, Spike (of the Buffy variety) and Indiana (named after the famous Jones).
