To pass the time during lockdown, I decided to tick an item off my bucket list and write some English ghost stories.

I grew up in Kersal (pronounced “Kurzle”), so my childhood home was near all the locations mentioned in these tales. Enjoy!

When I’m not writing stories or recording The Midweek Horror Podcast, I also help out with Horrified, which is an online celebration of British horror. There’s loads of great content on the site so make sure you have a look—and if you think you’d like to write about British horror movies, please reach out to me on Twitter.
