The Pendle Curse - From Beyond The Grave, Vengeance is Theirs

I am delighted to announce that my latest novel, The Pendle Curse, is being published by Samhain - in ebook and paperback.

Four hundred years ago, ten convicted witches were hanged on Gallows Hill. Now they are back…for vengeance.

Laura Phillips’s grief at her husband’s sudden death shows no sign of passing. Even sleep brings her no peace. She experiences vivid, disturbing dreams of a dark, brooding hill, and a man—somehow out of time—who seems to know her. She discovers that the place she has dreamed about exists. Pendle Hill. And she knows she must go there.

But as soon as she arrives, the dream becomes a nightmare. She is caught up in a web of witchcraft and evil…and a curse that will not die.
Much of the action in The Pendle Curse takes place on the windwept and stormy Lancashire district know as Pendle Forest. This is ironic as very few trees can survive the harsh conditions.

When I visited there, while I was researching this book, I was treated to typical Pendle conditions. Rain lashed down - almost horizontally owing to the gale-force winds. Pendle Hill itself loomed ominously ahead, dark, forbidding.

This countryside remains little changed since 1612, when ten men and women met their untimely end, enduring the cruel and infamous 'short drop'.

Small wonder they vowed to pursue those who had wronged them...
