Hello everyone my name is Alan, and I am an avid reader of Horror. I am a trained City of London Guide, as well as a seasoned ghost hunter. My love of horror has its origins in my childhood, even back then I loved to listen to my Nan’s ghost stories, and despite being scared stupid by them, like a glutton for punishment, I always found myself coming back for more. When I turned 16 my mum, who was also a huge horror fan, introduced me to the works of James Herbert, I was immediately enthralled by his writing. After reading his book, The Ghosts of Sleath, I knew I wanted to follow in his footsteps and become a writer myself.
One of the things that has aided me in my writing of horror is my belief in the supernatural. I have led many ghost walks around the City of London, and taken part in nearly 20 over night ghost hunts. While its true I have never seen a ghost, I have had more than my fair share of strange experiences during these events. Such as the ghostly groans and phantom footsteps that I heard while investigating the very Haunted Woodchester Mansion, which is hidden away deep in the Cotswolds. There was also the ghostly organ music I heard coming from an apparently empty church, which took place one winter’s night, while I was taking part in a London ghost walk.
While its true that not everyone believes in ghosts, and I’m not here to convince you one way or another. But there was a quote I once heard that said, I don’t believe in ghosts, but I am scared of them. So, while you may not share my belief, I may still be able to coax out some of that intoxicating fear that we all crave from time to time.
