Debbie Johansson writes Gothic Fiction, romance, and quiet horror.

She grew up in Sydney’s inner west, near the largest necropolis in the Southern Hemisphere. A taphophile, Debbie is fascinated by the paranormal, mysteries, and the unexplained. She loves history, exploring old houses, and abandoned buildings.

In recent years, she has experienced ghostly encounters at various haunted locations, including Monte Cristo Homestead and Q Station in Sydney.

Growing up with an appreciation for film, she loved watching horror movies; her biggest influences being Alfred Hitchcock and Peter Weir’s Picnic at Hanging Rock.

Debbie writes stories set in Australia and is the author of short stories and novellas. She is currently working on the third novella in her Marsden Hall series, and writing her first novel.

When not writing, Debbie enjoys reading, going for long walks, listening to music, and watching too much television.

She lives in rural New South Wales with her husband, two children, and a dog named Fox.
