Nancy Kilpatrick has published 18 novels, 1 non-fiction book, over 200 short stories, 5 collections of short stories, and has edited 12 anthologies. Most of her tales involve Vampires. Her dark fantasy blends in with mystery and erotic horror.

Her nom de plumes are Amarantha Knight and Desiree Knight, however, there is plenty to be read under her own name.

Nancy has been a finalist for the Bram Stoker Award three times now and a finalist for the Aurora Award five times. She has also won the Arthur Ellis Award for best mystery. Quite a list of accomplishments!

With so many titles for me to select from, I decided to spotlight The Vampire Stories Of Nancy Kilpatrick. This is a great assortment of some of her best work. Below is a brief description from Amazon:

Nancy Kilpatrick is called "Canada's Queen of the Undead". She is now considered the best fantasy writer in Canada and her world-wide reputation has grown enormously. Her books have now been published in 6 languages. The Vampire Stories of Nancy Kilpatrick reflect the dark side of humanity, including our desires for passion, longevity, power, creativity and control.The volume contains 19 of her very best stories. They include:
  • Theatrical Vampires
  • Erotic Bloodsuckers
  • Mythological & Historical Revenants
  • Bats with Bite
  • The Unquiet Undead
What critics have said about Nancy Kilpatrick: "It's a kind of perverse love story and inevitably Nancy Kilpatrick's going to be compared with Anne Rice..." "Vampire fans a little tired of Anne Rice might want to try Nancy Kilpatrick..." "Anybody who has read the works of Nancy Kilpatrick can't deny that this woman knows her vampires." "If you like bloody horror and hair-raising, Nancy is definitely for you."

Pretty much, this says it all for this very talented author.

Nancy Kilpatrick is a Woman in Horror!
