The LOHF Directory

LOHFDirectory2.png

Welcome to the Ladies of Horror Fiction Directory! We can’t promise it’s a comprehensive list (though we do promise we’re trying our hardest to make it so!), but if you are looking to read more female authors in horror fiction and don’t know where to start, this should give you a great jumping-off point.

Listed (last, first) alphabetically. Click on the word “Website” to be taken to their personal websites if they have one or their Goodreads author page if they do not.

As time goes, we will slowly be adding profiles on the site about each of the women. When that happens, their names will be clickable.

This list will continue to develop over time. If there is a name we are missing, please let us know in the comments below.

NOTE: A (D) beside a person’s name indicates deceased. A * indicates that this is a pseudonym (of a female writer).

Gentle reminder: We are not perfect. We may get your name wrong. If we do, feel free to let us know what we did. However, remember the golden rule and treat people how you, yourself, expect to be treated. 

Due to a delightfully long list, we’ve broken the LOHF Directory up into several pages. Here you will find A-D, but click on any of the following links to be taken to the relevant sections. E-J, K-M, N-S, T-Z

  41. Awesome list! 🙂 I write horror short stories & poetry, as well as writing crime and “literary” fiction (all good writing is literary of course!). Collections featuring my horror include “Hair Raising Tales of Horror,” “Villainous Confessions,” and “Enduring Spirit: Stories.” I’d love to join the list!

Horror is my first love and my most recent horror publications are in Star*Line, Wicked Haunted, Rose Red Review, and Goreyesque. It’s wonderful to see all these names and KNOW we’re not doing this alone!
