The Ghost Story

There is just something about a ghost story that makes you feel more alive.

As the nights get longer and spooky celebrations draw nearer, I think of my favorite spooky stories that scared me deliciously as a child.

I love writing them, too. After all, what could have happened in life to make one so unhappy in death? The plot instantly thickens.
Solid well rounded tales of mystery and woe, often with a dark and dreary end that stick in your memory for a lifetime…
