Shah Wharton is a British freelancer and author of dark fiction.
Her late father introduced her to the dark side and to the power of words (and to zombie horror movies when far too young). He nurtured in her a deep appreciation of storytelling and a lifetime love of dark literature and the horror genre. Shah relaxes by watching dark themed TV, sipping a glass of bold red wine and snuggling on the sofa with her husband and their two rescue dogs.
Mental illness runs in her family; Shah was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2005. An advocate for mental health awareness, she speaks out on the issue, candidly and this subject is often laced through her stories.
Shah is a Psychology graduate (1999). She is currently enhancing her creative and professional skills while studying for her Masters in Creative Writing.
