Briana Una McGuckin lives in a charmingly strange old house in Connecticut. She has spastic diplegic cerebral palsy, and she writes Gothic and Suspense fiction–sometimes romantic, sometimes scary, sometimes a little bit fantastical.

Her debut novel, ON GOOD AUTHORITY, is a kinky, below-stairs Victorian, Romantic Suspense/Gothic Romance coming out October 11, 2022. Her short fiction appears in the Stoker-nominated horror anthology Not All Monsters (Rooster Republic Press), modern Gothic horror anthology In Somnio (Tenebrous Press), and The Lost Librarian’s Grave anthology (Redwood Press).

A part-time academic librarian, she has an M.F.A. in Creative Writing from Western Connecticut State University, and an M.L.S. from Long Island University. Briana has perhaps a concerningly large collection of perfume oils, and a fascination with all things Victorian.
