D J Reid lives by the sea in the beautiful city of Edinburgh, Scotland. She enjoys walking on the shore and through the haunted streets of the old city. She loves books in every genre, but especially fantasy, psychological thrillers and ghost stories and has no desire to be delivered from ghoulies and ghosties, long-leggedy beasties and things that go bump in the night. She also loves history, mythology, the countryside and animals and several cats have owned her.
Her first novel "Shadowfest" is the story of a Mage called Morven, set in an imaginary ancient Celtic world. Morven also appears in "Tor Donnach", a short story in "The Rider" anthology from Crimson Cloak Publishing.
