Profile: Tabatha Wood

A former English teacher and library manager, Tabatha Wood lives in Wellington and writes weird, dark fiction and uplifting poetry.  Despite her obsession with the strange and unusual, she considers herself mostly harmless, although she does take great delight in shocking people with her stories every chance she can get.

A former English teacher and library manager, Tabatha’s first published books were non-fiction guides aimed at people working in education. She now teaches from home while writing in her spare time. 

She released her debut collection, Dark Winds Over Wellington: Chilling Tales of the Weird & the Strange in March 2019. Since then she has had stories published in the charity anthology Tricksters Treats 3, Seven Deadly Sins, the AHWA magazine Midnight Echo #14 and Breach #12

Tabatha is the lead editor in a team of twelve for the Black Dogs, Black Tales anthology. The collection aims to raise money and awareness for the Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand and will be published by Things In The Well Press in 2020.
