E O Higgins is a British fiction writer and performer.

Higgins’ first novel 'Conversations with Spirits' was published in 2014, by Unbound[1] and Cornerstone.[2]

'Conversations with Spirits' was nominated for Edinburgh International Book Festival’s ‘First Book Award’ [3][4] the same year.

Whilst attending the Festival, Higgins debated ‘fiction that blurs reality with illusion’[5] with Canadian novelist Steven Galloway, and performed a ‘séance’[4] at the Guardian Spiegeltent, in the guise of his comedy alter ego - ‘psychic thaumaturge’[4][6] - Laars Head.

Higgins became a full member of the Crime Writers’ Association in 2015.
