Comprehensive Backgrounder

Rosemary A Johns grew up in Radley, a village in Oxfordshire. She has a passion for history – with a BA and Mst from Oxford University – and the theatre. Her plays have been performed at various theatres (including the Burton Taylor).

The play is a startlingly original look at friendship, love and violence… It’s frighteningly effective. Random 12 is an excellent psychological thriller – uncomfortable, unsettling, and uneasily true to life. An unmissable chance to see new talent at work.” – Felicity James, Daily Info.

Breaking Ice was selected by the Royal Court Theatre and the BBC for the OUDS New Writing Initiative.

Hello Darkness poster finalWhen she’s not falling in love with the rebels fighting their way onto the page, Rosemary’s giving readings or talks. She recently appeared at Oxford’s ‘Women in Dark Fiction Event’ with Helen Marshall and Nico Reznick.

Rosemary A Johns’ short stories and novellas have appeared in a number of short story anthologies by Horrified Press, Thirteen O’clock Press or Silent Fray (as R. A. Johns). In 2018 her novellas will be appearing under her Rosemary A Johns name, in some of the biggest urban fantasy and supernatural box sets of the year.

Rosemary A Johns also runs the Oxfordshire branch of the global Feed my Reads, as well as the writing group Dreaming Spires..

A rebel vampire, a red-haired devil, and a sassy heroine battle to save the world—or tear it apart.

Light, a bad boy vampire of the Blood Lifer world, has been hiding in the shadows of paranormal London since Victorian times. His only company? A savage Elizabethan Blood lifer. And he’s keeping a secret from her that breaks every rule.

London, 1960s. When a seductive human singer tempts Light with a forbidden romance, their worlds collide. At the same time, Light discovers his ruthless family’s horrifying experiments. Now he’s torn between slaying the humans he was raised to fear, or saving them.

But an effort to play the hero could spell the end…for both species.
