Tabatha Wood lives in Wellington, New Zealand. A former English teacher and school library manager, her first published books are non-fiction guides aimed at teachers and others who work in education. She now teaches from home, while writing in her spare time.
Born in Whitby, North Yorkshire, Tabatha has always had a passion for weaving strange, unusual, and often gothic tales, entwined with her deep love for the land and sea. She strongly encourages the use of writing and creativity for positive mental health, and runs a group which supports women who write for wellness. She also hosts writing workshops, often gets involved in cosplay charity events, and enjoys knitting and making jewellery.
Her short story collection, Dark Winds Over Wellington: Chilling Tales of the Weird & the Strange was independently published by Wild Wood Books in March 2019.
Tabatha is very happy to send out free electronic copies (.mobi or .pdf ebook format) of her collection in return for a fair review. She will post paperback copies to those residing in New Zealand and Australia. Please contact her here to arrange this.
