Researcher, writer of historical, paranormal, and general fiction. Poet.
My social media presence consists of an addiction to Twitter/Facebook:
My blogging presence is historical, but fairly influential in the spheres of theatre history (always a surprise to me):
I also blog about general history and here I find inspiration for my fiction:
The Swan Circle
The Guinea Ghost
The Sea Of Conscience
Waves To Light (September 2015)
The penny has finally dropped - The Guinea Ghost is too short and so I have decided, I will apply some remedial work to it after the release of The Sea of Conscience. Despite the minor grumble relating to its brevity, I am still thrilled by the following review posted on Goodreads:
'I really enjoyed this short story. It is not simply a ghost story - it also examines the psychology of the narrator and her thoughts and feelings during her experience of the haunting.
The first half of the story is full of tightly written, atmospheric description which creates a distinct sense of place and period (it is a very well-researched piece of historical fiction). Dialogue is taut and believable and the book hard to put down. My only grumble (and it is a minor one) is that in the second half it feels as if the author has felt the need to end the tale more quickly than is necessary. We are left wanting to know more about the narrator's experience and her relationship with her parents - which seems ambivalent and ill-defined.
But I would heartily recommend this to anyone who enjoys a chilling tale well-written. I would happily pay for a full-length novel or collection of stories by this writer.'
