Anne Billson
Anne Billson, born in 1954, is a film critic, writer, and photographer that was born in Southport, England.

She was a film critic for The Sunday Telegraph (1992-2001), The Sunday Correspondent (1989-1990), and Today (1986). Anne has written film reviews for the New Statesman & Society (1991-92) and Time Out, Tatler (1989-90).

Anne has written several volumes of nonfiction, including monographs on films like Tomas Alfredson’s “Let the Right One In” and John Carpenter’s “The Thing”.

In 1993, she was named one of the “Best Young British Novelists” by Granta. The British Film Institute named her as one of “25 Female Film Critics Worth Celebrating” in 2015.

Anne has lived in Brussels, London, Antwerp, Paris, Tokyo, and Croydon. She’s a presenter and programmer at Offscreen Film Festival in Brussels.

“Suckers” is a stand alone novel that was released in 1993. This very funny, dark, chic, and sharp novel is set at the tail end of the ‘greed is good’ era, and it features a gothic love triangle between a woman, a man, and the 300 year old vampire that they chopped into bits a whole decade ago.

However she is now back, and this time around, she is building a bloodsucking empire.

Anne honors the rules of the vampire genre, and then proceeds to have a bit of fun with them.

“The Dream Demon” is a stand alone novel that was released in 1989. Susan will soon marry the man that she loves, so why is she having such horrible nightmares? What is the secret of the ugly old doll that she finds in the basement? And who is that mysterious American girl that shows up on the doorstep of her new London home?

Susan soon finds it hard to distinguish her dreams from reality. However she cannot learn to tell them apart, she might never be able to wake up ever again.

This is the story of two young women from incredibly different backgrounds that team up against the ancient evil that attacks them through their dreams.

“The Ex” is a stand alone novel that was released in 2012. A ghost story narrated with self-lacerating humor by this private eye that has got a lot to learn about the world of the supernatural as well as himself.

Alice Marchmont is beautiful and classy and will soon get married to the most eligible bachelor in town. However she really could use John Croydon’s help. This is because she has a stalker, it is her fiance’s ex-wife, who has been threatening to disrupt their wedding, or even worse. Croydon just has the one week to persuade this inconvenient ex to back off and leave this happy couple alone. The problem is, she is going to take a bit of persuading. Because she’s actually dead. And has been dead for quite some time. And she is not looking all that pretty.

In the course of this investigation which will lead him from London all the way to Norfolk and, ultimately, to Venice, John Croydon is going to be forced to dig into his own troubled past for some answers. He’ll learn that looks can really be deceptive, women aren’t to be trusted, one canal is a lot like another, and that some ghosts are worse than others. So much worse.

“The Coming Thing” is a stand alone novel that was released in 2017. She will die. What will be coming out of her is much too large, too powerful, and it’ll rip her apart.

Her best friend gets all of the attention. Now she is pregnant with the Antichrist, religious maniacs are attempting to murder her, and she wants to have an abortion. How can you possibly compete with that, persuade her to keep the baby, and at the same time hold your job down as a bookshop assistant as you try not to think too much about decapitated Chihuahuas and the unpleasantness at the clinic? It is not easy.

An everyday story about female friendship versus suave assassins, the End of Days, and pushy tabloid reporters.

“Blood Pearl” is the first novel in the “Camillography” series and was released in 2018. Millie Greenwood leads a pretty uneventful life in Bramblewood (the most boring village in all of England) with her overprotective parents. Until one day, shortly after her sixteenth birthday, she sneakily forges her mom’s signature to go on this school trip to Paris.

However by leaving Great Britain via the Channel Tunnel, Millie breaks an invisible seal. Before she even realizes what is going on, she and her friends are getting targeted by Maison Pim, a Parisian fashion house, which just so happens to be the front for this incredibly evil and ancient syndicate of vampires.

Millie will soon learn that Bramblewood is not nearly as boring as she believes, that there is much more to her parents than meets the eye, that paintings in the Louvre are not merely paintings, that the world is filled with shapeshifters, ghosts, and witches, that some of her classmates possess hidden talents even they’re unaware of, and that the key to her own survival could be this misshapen and ugly pearl.

However who can she possibly trust? Because now these vampires are after her blood, and their evil influence reaches wide and far.

“The Half Man” is a stand alone novel that was released in 2019. The Half Man is an eldritch place! What’s the secret of The Half Man, this creepy old inn on the windswept coast of Norfolk? Vic, this low-ranking foot soldier from London’s gangland, has got orders to learn what it is and bring it back to his boss, or else. However that’s easier said than done, for no sooner has Vic checked in than one of his fellow guests gets decapitated right in front of him.

Everybody knows whodunnit, but why? Nobody staying at The Half Man is what they appear to be, and Vic soon is going to find himself fighting for his own life in this imbroglio of nosy cops, hot dames, ancient rituals, magic, and quicksand. So much quicksand.
