Threatening, gloomy skies. Dark, chilly days and even darker, colder nights. Whispering from the corner or the rustle of dead leaves? A vision of the future or your worst nightmare come true? A silly game or a portal into the unknown? Was that a creak on the stairs or just the wind whistling in the eaves? You don’t have to believe in ghosts to enjoy a ghost story. Between these pages, you will find ghosts of all kinds. Not all ghosts are scary as I set out to prove in some of these stories. Some of the spirits within are indeed dark and vengeful, while others are playful and helpful and one wants to be forgiven for a past sin, despite the cruelty and injustice he himself suffered. All the stories within are set during winter, at or near Christmas, when in many homes it is traditional to read or listen to ghost stories, so curl up by the fireside and read on. I hope you enjoy the ghostly tales inside this cover. Sweet dreams and sleep well!

Lesley is a retired head teacher and started writing for pleasure soon after retirement. She wrote most of the following stories during the lockdown, finding them very cathartic. Her interest in ghosts and the supernatural began when an aunt gave her a copy of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol for her 12th birthday. She has read it every year since. Lesley has three daughters and lives in County Durham.

  • ATG

    Loved the stories. So real and understandable. Should be picked up for TV.

  • Great anthology of different ghost stories

    A fantastically well written anthology of mixed ghost stories. The premise of the stories are varied, some.light, some dark. I got chills reading them. Well worth the read.

  • Super scary and fun!!

    Wright's devotion to keeping the reader intrigued is evident in this thrilling anthology. Each story offering different spooks, perfect for nighttime reading.
    I particularly enjoyed 'The missing patient', read it three times over and over as it is astounding - expect twists.
