Happy to announce that our new book ‘The Ghost in the Hill’ is now available to download from the kindle store. Take a look here. I hope you enjoy it.
There are haunted places. There are haunted books. There are haunted people. There are haunted friendships. Dark, uncanny, and fantastical, The Ghost in the Hill is a book of strange tales to keep you company through a long winter’s night.
Three friends come together to spend a evening sharing ghost stories around a fireplace. Each story reveals a secret, and a mystery they have been haunted by for a decade threatens to overwhelm them all completely.
A curious entry in an old diary seems to contain a message from the dead. What do you do? Close that chapter once and for all, and never look back again? Or follow where the message leads you, no matter how strange a place that might be?
Bookshops are usually such safe places. Not this one. A girl goes hunting for a book to read and ends up trapped in a strange world full of crows and were-witches, dog-boys, and a woman who looks just like Cyd Charisse.
Three new strange tales from the author of ‘The Old Maid‘, and ‘The Shorecliff Horror‘. Readers say:
“Fast become one of my favorite writers, especially for weird, literary suspense.”
