Welcome, I appreciate you visiting my author website. I write supernatural horror novels, novellas, and scary short stories for fun and to provide heart-pounding entertainment to readers who love scary stories. My horror books include ghost stories, hauntings, witches, serial killers, creatures from other dimensions, legendary monsters and short story collections. While my books are full of dark suspense, I believe in writing characters with heart. I also love a great mysery, so my horror stories also combine mysteries and thrillers with action adventure.
I currently have these books available. I've also got some audio books coming out soon for The Devil's Woods, Shadows in the Mist, The Witching House, and The Vagrants.
In the mean time, feel free to explore my website. You can learn more about what I'm up to and read articles and interviews at my horrorblogDark Lucidity.

“Brian Moreland writes a blend of survival horror and occult mystery that I find impossible to resist. His writing is clean, precise, and, best of all, compulsively readable. I know, when I've got one of his books in my hands, that I'm going to be lost to the world for hours on end. He's just that good.”
-- Joe McKinney, Bram Stoker winning author of Dead City and Flesh Eaters
“Dead of Winter is an exceptionally well crafted horror novel that tells a gripping story of dark religious doings, a horrific serial killer, and a sympathetic Inspector, in a dark and fascinating historical setting of 19th century Canada. The atmospherics are outstanding and the story offers plenty of surprises right up to its shocking and violent conclusion. Highly recommended.”
-- Douglas Preston, New YorkTimes bestselling co-author of The Monster of Florence and Cold Vengeance
