Her debut collection, “Dark Winds Over Wellington: Chilling Tales of the Weird & the Strange” was released in March 2019, and nominated for a Sir Julius Vogel award for Best Collected Fiction in 2020.

Dark Winds Over Wellington: Chilling Tales of the Weird & the Strange

By Tabatha Wood

Strange creatures lurk in the shadows of the Beehive, while a beast From The Deep is determined to destroy us all. Being Neighbourly might just change your life, and if you listen closely you can hear demonic Whispers in the wind. So sit back, take a sip of A Good Cup of Coffee and question all The Things You See. In the city, there are no Second Chances and every chapter might be your last.
