Poppy Z. Brite aka Melissa Ann Brite is an American horror author. Brite initially achieved notoriety in the gothic horror genre of literature in the early 1990s after publishing a string of successful novels.

Brite's recent work has moved into the related genre of dark comedy, of which many are set in the New Orleans restaurant world.
