How many times have  you walked upstairs to go to bed after switching off the lights? The house is in complete darkness. You get half way up the stairs and start to panic. You get goosebumps and feel like there is someone or something behind you and rush up the last few steps to get into the bedroom and put the light on. The top of the stairs seem an awful long way when you are scared.

This has happened to me so many times I have lost count. I get the shivers and it feels like I will never reach the light switch.

What if you reached out for the light switch and you hand was snatched away from it by something unseen?

What is something brushed past you, touching your skin?

What if you reached out for the light switch and your hand touched something else, something you were afraid of. A tarantula or a clammy invisible face.?

What if your worst nightmare played out and you never got to switch the light on at all?

How vivid is your imagination?  How badly can you scare yourself?

Switch off all of the lights now and give it a try.

Spooked – Dead of July


Last night I worked on my novel ‘Dead of July’.

I spooked myself

It was intense. I was writing about being in my apartment in Germany all alone. It was early in the morning and I was rushing to get out and catch a tram to work. 

I could hear someone laughing in what should have been my ’empty’ apartment. 

I ran out of the door and down the stairs. An invisible hand placed itself firmly between my shoulder blades and pushed me. 

I managed to stop myself from falling down three flights of stairs, but only just. 

I was wrapped up in what I was writing that when I stopped, I felt like I was there. I was on Robert Strasse in Germany, afraid and alone, and haunted. I was completely spooked and as I got ready for bed I was nervous and jumpy.  Here I am again, alone and getting ready to work on my novel.
