Katherine Stansfield is a novelist and poet whose debut novel The Visitor won the Holyer an Gof Fiction Award. She grew up in the wilds of Bodmin Moor in Cornwall and lived on the west coast of Wales for many years.
"Stansfield gives a haunting evocation of a place and time when superstition and logic coexisted in uneasy alliance, and challenges the reader to decide which was more real." Publisher's Weekly "Stansfield has produced an unsettling read, with atmospheric detail that pulls you in to a landscape of superstition and supernatural goings on... This is an unsettling tale, full of fear and suspense, with two unconventional and independent women at its centre." Created to Read
