I love this time of year -Halloween- because it means we get to talk about my favourite type of story, GHOST STORIES.
Most of my books feature some sort of ‘spooky business’ because these were the stories I devoured as a child. Back when I grew up in the Dark Ages, my favourite comic was called ‘Misty’. Yes, I actually still have all these in my parents’ attic.
My number one TV show was Tales of the Unexpected, on every week and brilliant for strange, twisty, spooky stories that made your scalp prickle. ( and ladies dancing to bizarre music but we won’t go there).
Non- fiction favourites? Why these of course! And yes, I had the whole set.
If like me, you’re a fan of ghost stories which ones would I recommend? That depends on how much you like to be scared. Here are four brilliant stories that I’ve ranked according to their spookiness (The Woman in Black being the most scary IMO). They’re best read by candlelight.
