OMFG where the hell do I start! Every now and then I read a book that totally knocks me off my feet and it really does deserve some praise. Yes you guessed it….this is one of those books. I absolutely freaking loved it and want to shout from the roof tops about it.
It has been a long time since I have stayed up all night reading, but this book is so damn good it just had to be done.Talk about a white knuckle ride when we follow a story that alternates between the past and the present when we meet a cast of characters with a story set in a derelict farm house. Which is oh so very creepy.
The opening scene for the present time line made me feel like I was watching The Hitchhiker (what a Film) I was well and truly hooked.
OMG what can I say but this story takes gruesome to another level, so it isn’t for the faint hearted. (you know me the darker the better.) Not only will this story keep you up all night it will make you squirm and feel the terror.
I love how the story alternates and we follow two different time lines, with each chapter leaving you wanting more. This story is freaking mind blowing.
If you are looking for something dark then this is the book for you. I am a massive fan of Shaun Hutson, Richard Laymon and Graham Masterson. All you horror fans are going to love it, I sure did. Stuart has weaved a crime into the perfect horror story. I cannot recommend it enough giving it all the stars.
Many thanks to Sarah Hardy for letting me jump on board at the last minute.
I have always loved scary stories, especially ones that shocked me, left me terrified, looking under my bed or in the wardrobe before going to sleep.
There was just a fantastic buzz whenever I watched or read something that took my breathe away.I remember going to my nan’s house in Ireland as a youngster with my mother and sister, on the West Coast, staying in a cottage, surrounded by miles of fields and my family sitting around the table in the kitchen at night telling ghost stories. Going out and exploring derelict farmhouses in the middle of nowhere. I remember clearly the field at the end of the road was supposed to be haunted by headless nuns.My cousins often remind me of the great times we had, frightening each other and running for our lives whenever we’d see something that didn’t look right.This is why I love nothing more than to tell a story.
I started writing two years ago, penning The House On Rectory Lane.I got the idea from something that has often seemed scary to me. I know that a terrifying story has to be something that you’re frightened of doing, something that makes the hairs stand on the back of your neck, something that fills you with dread, yet also with excitement.To me, the thought of going to a house in the middle of nowhere, upping and leaving a busy town and moving to the country is something that scares lots of people and me: the seclusion, the quiet, the darkness.That’s what inspired me to write my first novel.
My second thriller is called Turn The Other Way.I have multiple stories running, past and present. A family who want answers from the surgeon responsible for their daughter’s death.A young woman looking for her parents after they go missing from a party.A couple driving home and hearing screams for help from the back of the van in front of them.A serial killer on the loose in North London, dragging victims off the street.
I’m so grateful when people not only read my thrillers but also take the time to get in touch and leave a review. To me, that is the greatest feeling, hearing from people that have enjoyed my work. I know then that I’m doing something right.
I’m currently working on my new thriller, Apartment Six, which should be released later this year.
I’m 45, married and have two beautiful children. Currently, I’m a full-time plumber but would love nothing more than to make a living from my writing. I hope I write stories and people continue to enjoy them for years to come. That would be completely amazing and a dream come true.
