Nationality: Canadian American


Nancy Kilpatrick was born and grew up in Philadelphia. Before emigrating to Canada in 1970, she lived for a year in San Francisco and another year-and-a-half in Chicago. She is a full-time writer of mainly dark fantasy and horror in both short and long forms, but has also written fantasy, mystery stories, erotica, one science fiction story, and non-fiction articles for magazines and newspapers.

Known as Canada's "Queen of Vampire Fiction", the undead comprise a large amount of her repertoire, but are certainly not all she writes about. Zombies, ghosts and serial killers have also figured prominently in her work.

She has also written under two pen names, Amarantha Knight and Desiree Knight, and has collaborated with a number of writers and editors, including Don Bassingthwaite, Thomas Roche and Nancy Holder. Kilpatrick has published 18 novels, about 200 short stories, 5 collections of stories, a few issues of a comic book series, 1 non-fiction book and many non-fiction articles, and has edited 13 anthologies.

Kilpatrick has been a Bram Stoker finalist three times, a finalist for the Prix Aurora Award five times and,
in addition to winning several short fiction contests, won the Arthur Ellis Award for best mystery.

Married and divorced twice, she currently lives in Montréal, Québec, with a calico cat named Fedex.
