Moira Martingale is a journalist, former columnist and feature writer for national and regional newspapers and magazines including the Birmingham Post, the Liverpool Echo, the Sunday Times and the Sun. She is the author of Ghostbusters and the original Cannibal Killers: The Impossible Monsters. In the 1980s she wrote substantially in newspapers about the formerly taboo subject of child sexual abuse, especially within families. Prior to this, no newspapers had been courageous enough to expose this hidden issue; afterwards many campaigners continued to publicise the topic within national UK media and, later, internationally. Martingale’s previous books were published in the UK and worldwide by various publishers. She has B. Ed. and MSc. degrees in English Literature and Psychology and a doctorate in Gothic Literature. Studying abnormal psychology gave her a particular interest in the darker aspects of the human psyche – child abuse remains a bête noir – and she has just completed a novel which explores multiple personality disorder. She lives in Worcestershire, England, and Carcassonne, France.
