Five stories for Christmas

Five stories for Christmas

I have now published five ghost stories, the latest being The Heysham Chronicle. They are all on my website and free to read. The aim is to produce eight and then to off them for publication in book form, M.R. James style.

The first was Naomi which apart from being the first ghost story, begin the series of full length novels where she is the central character. In some ways, she has become something of a cult figure. A third Naomi novel is nearing completion.

The second ghost story is The Clock, a semi-autobiographical tale set in Pembroke Ferry is South Wales. The story is set in a haunted cottage about a grandfather clock that makes its spectral presence felt!

The third story is The Haunting of Dr Jacobs, a sinister tale  about an academic whose past catches up with him. This one is set in central London.

Have you ever been just a little bit wary of mirrors? What would you do if the scene that is reflected back is not of you? Read this tale and find out.

And finally, the latest ghost story with a Christmas flavour about a painting that has supernatural qualities. Be wary of those shadows in your bedroom. You just don’t what is hiding in them.

I am a cereer journalist having worked for the London Dail Mail, Reuters and latterly the Liverpool Daily Post on Merseyside as well as the journalists’ leader in the region. I have experience as a crime reporter, feature writer, business editor and latterly, a senior sub-editor. My qualifications include a BA (Hons) English, from the University of Liverpool; a BA (Hons) Fine Art and an MA in Creative Practice both from Liverpool Hope University. I now divide my time between art and writing. I will shortly be publishing my first full-length novel, The Poseidon Files and as a taster I have written a short story which features the same central female character in which she talks about her world and her life. It is, however, essentially a ghost story.
