Painful memories

I'm going to share something very personal with you now, something I don't really like thinking about much, but sometimes when these feelings overcome you, you need to get them out.

I'm doing a guest blog for as part of her event, 31 books of Halloween (stop by, it should be a fun month).

As my blog topic, I chose Dean Koontz, my all time favourite horror writer. In my mind, no author has ever equalled his brilliance. Anyway, I rounged some pictures up of his books for the blog and looking through them, I came across one called The Taking. My blood ran cold as I remembered this was the book I was reading on my last night of drinking, the night before my 28th birthday.

Mans Best Friend


For those of you who enjoyed the true story of Greyfriars Bobby at the beginning of Past Life, meet Captain, a modern day dog who had refused to leave his masters grave for 6 years and counting.

“I’ve tried to bring Capitan home several times, but he always comes straight back to the cemetery,” said the son, 15-year-old Damian.  “I think he’s going to be there until he dies too. He’s looking after my dad.”
