The UK boasts many weird and wonderful supernatural stories. Many of them focus on bizarre things that aren’t human; be it cryptozoological creatures or folkloric figures. As you might imagine, for writers, it’s a veritable treasure-trove of inspiration; hence several have featured in my books!

As you know, I’m not just a writer, but an avid reader too. Obsessive, in fact.
