Becky Wright is an author with a passion for Gothic literature, history, the supernatural and things that go bump in the night. As a child nothing tantalised her senses as much a good ghost story. Blessed, she lives in the heart of the Suffolk countryside, surrounded by rolling green fields, picturesque timber-framed villages, country pubs and rural churches – and lots of haunted houses. She is married, with a young son, four grown-up children, and grandchildren. Family bonds and the intricate nature of relationships feature strongly in her books, using the emotions of her characters to lead their actions. With her inherent fascination for all things paranormal, Gothic and the macabre, her writing tends to lean towards the dark side.
I am primarily a psychological thriller and horror writer, though I do venture outside of those genres. I was born in Nigeria, the youngest of five children. I moved to Canada when I was four and was raised in Toronto, in areas that were considered to be ‘high risk’. In those areas I learned hard lessons at a young age, about things like death and discrimination, but also about strength, survival and passion. I was able to graduate from the University of Toronto with a BA in Psychology (minors in Philosophy and Classical Studies) and I have worked mainly as a Social Worker since my graduation. So far, I’ve released two books and I am working on several projects at the moment. My first release was an anthology of psychological horror stories called “How To Make A Monster: The Loveliest Shade of Red”. My debut novel is entitled “Bug Spray: A Tale of Madness”. It deals with topics such as toxic relationships, retribution, and mental health issues.
