Berni Stevens lives in a 400-year-old cottage in Hertfordshire, with her husband, black cat, three goldfish who think they're piranha, and occasionally her son when he needs feeding up! She trained in graphic design, and has worked as a book cover designer for over twenty-five years.
Her love of paranormal fiction began at school when she first read Bram Stoker's Dracula, and she’s been a dedicated fan of the fanged ever since.
Berni is on the committee and book panel of The Dracula Society – a London-based literary society for fans of gothic literature, film and theatre. She also designs their quarterly newsletter.
Berni works as a freelance cover designer both for publishers and self-published authors. Any ‘spare’ time is taken up with jazz dance and Zumba, going to rock concerts and hiking canyons every year in the American deserts of Utah.
Dance Until Dawn, a paranormal romance, was Berni’s UK debut with award-winning publisher Choc Lit, and is available in paperback, eBook and audio. The sequel, Revenge is Sweet, is available in all digital formats. The third novel in the series is almost complete, featuring many of the same characters from the first two books, whilst concentrating on the trials and tribulations of a lovelorn werewolf.
Berni’s first RomCom, One Magical Christmas, is available in all digital formats and audio, from 30 October 2018 and will restore your belief in magic – especially at the wonderful time of Christmas.
Berni also has several short stories published in anthologies – romantic ones, gothic ones and sometimes simply fantasy!
