Courtney Floyd grew up in New Mexico, where she learned to write between tarantula turf wars and apocalyptic dust storms. She currently lives at the bottom of a haunted mountain in the woods of Vermont with her partner and pets. Perhaps unsurprisingly, she writes speculative fiction: novels, short stories, and audio drama.

Courtney has a PhD in British Literature and a penchant for irreverent literary allusions. An alum of Viable Paradise 2022 and member of Codex, her short stories can be found in Fireside Magazine, Apex’s Strange Libations, Small Wonders, and Wizards in Space. Her lighthearted horror audio drama, The Way We Haunt Now, is available on all major podcast platforms. She is represented by Rebecca Matte of Bradford Literary Agency.

When Courtney isn’t writing, she’s likely to be found hiking with her dogs and taking photos of interesting mushrooms. Find her across the internet as @cannfloyd.
