HAUNTED (Coming Soon!)

Hola Horror Hounds!

Just to let you know that my next spine-tingler from Oxford University Press now has a bit of a blurb. So here’s a brief introduction to HAUNTED:

‘Emma Rhodes lives in Milton Lake – a seemingly ordinary town, where tales of hauntings and strange goings on ripple beneath the surface. When the mysterious Nick Redway moves into the near-derelict house on her street, Emma discovers that the terrible stories that haunt Milton Lake have more truth than she ever thought possible.

Someone is using Thomas Edison’s fabled Ghost Machine to call the dead back to the land of the living. Now it is up to Emma and the enigmatic boy next door to find out who is operating the deadly invention before it is too late and the town is overrun with the undead…’

Now it may surprise you to learn that the famous inventor Thomas Edison REALLY did claim to have invented a machine for speaking with the dead! Just Google ‘Edison Ghost Machine’ and you’ll find all the eerie details!

HAUNTED will be coming out next September. It’s a fast-paced ghost train of a story with lots of twists and creepy scenes as well as a shocking revelation at the end! There’s a haunted theme park overlooking the town of Milton Lake, a girl with a chilling past, an American hero who is more than appears to be, a supernatural antique store called ‘The Phantasmagorium’, and a whole army of the undead just waiting to be unleashed.

HAUNTED forms part of a loosely connected series of books, each of which contains a supernatural object, like Edison’s Ghost Machine, which might once have actually existed!

More HAUNTED news, including cover art, will be coming soon. In the meantime here’s a picture of the house which inspired the look and feel of the haunted house that stands across the road from Emma’s home
