Lingering Evil – WHY?

Dead of July (Small)

Two brothers, Yuri and Viktor. One dead, one in Jail. What happened to their evil unforgiving mother Marianna? Is she dead or alive?

Read  Dead of July and see how she taunted me in Summer of 1982. Here intentions were obvious, she wanted me dead! I thought I was free of all of them, but in 1984, when I discovered I was pregnant Marianna and Victor returned to haunt me.

I’m working on Lingering Evil, the sequel to Dead of July

Lingering Evil takes up where Dead of July left off. It’s not over yet!

Ghosts and Gangsters in Germany

I hope you have enjoyed reading my short stories as much as I have enjoyed writing them. They are a release for me and my head is bursting with them. If I didn’t let them out, I might go insane…wait a minute, maybe I am just a little bit insane anyway.

I started writing stories when I was twelve. Then life got in the way. Here I am again over forty years later. So I left it a little late, but not too late. I have one or two novels in me. I need to get them published before I’m too old.

‘Dead of July’ is turning into an exciting paranormal thriller. Much improved since I met Leslie Miller, my wonderful, talented and patient editor. She is a natural and has helped me to turn a good story into a great story. Yes I am singing my own praises.

‘Dead of July’ has taken me three years of writing and editing. I am proud of it. I am aiming for a release date sometime in September. The first three people who follow me on Facebook and leave a comment on this blog will earn themselves a free, autographed copy of the book, as well as one or two other things. Go for it. What do you have to lose?

Keep following, there is fun and adventure to be had if you stick with this crazy old Brit. Oh, and YES I do see dead people.












Ghost Story – Free e-Book review!

Girl on the Beach (US)

I really liked this story. It was well written and even though I knew pretty early on what was going to happen, I still couldn’t put it down.


A good story, told very well. Sort of a ghost story, without being macabre or creepy. As another reviewer mentioned, you can see early on what’s going to happen, but you don’t mind because it is so well-crafted and paints such a vivid picture of the author’s childhood. I highly recommend it.


I really enjoyed this story, its supernatural feel of premonitions and spirits, that sense of mood, the foreboding of those things that aren’t easily understood or explained. And I loved this special little girl who broke my heart. I really felt I got to know Sheila, everything about her, and I found her charming and endearing. The author completely put me into the mindset of this seven-year-old child. And several times, Sheila actually had me tearing up. I knew what she would soon be facing, and it’s always heartbreaking to see a small child face tragedy.

This story is written in such a gentle and natural way, every word smoothly and easily flowing to the next, never sounding forced or hurried. With well-chosen words, this author made me a picture of summer and sand and of a little girl so happy on her holiday. The author then breaks this idyll with feelings of dread, juxtaposing the brightness of summer with the dark shadow of death.

Told in first-person from Sheila’s point of view, this story is well-written and thoughtful, with the author showing and never telling the story, allowing the reader to experience all that Sheila feels. And you will feel many different emotions, from sadness to happiness, from dread to hope. Even suspecting the outcome of the story, I still felt the chilling beauty of it.
