New: Trip Trap
It's been a while, but I now have a new book out. Trip Trap is a horror story that incorporates fairytale themes and sets them firmly in the British countryside. Think Midsomer Murders crossed with The Three Billy Goats Gruff and you'll be on your way to an idea of what this new story might be about.
Who's that trip trapping over my bridge? It's the echo of a childhood bedtime story read on a mother's knee, but this story is definitely not for children. Eliza is excited when she gets her first assignment as a newspaper journalist, even if it does mean she has to travel to the back of beyond to get the story. But with a slew of missing persons and some weird weather warnings, there is definitely something going on in the little village of Bailby. The villagers stick together, and local policeman, Fraser, is Eliza's only ally. As they grow closer, something else is ripping the village apart - and it's coming to gobble them up...
Trip Trap is available from Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.com in both eBook and printed formats. It is published by J. Ellington Ashton.
