AGNES AND CAT

horror / dark fantasy novel
Ghost Orchid Press, 2023

Agnes Hellaire is a lonely twelve year old girl with many problems. Uprooted from her childhood home, she finds herself inhabiting a rundown house in the middle of the woods while her parents fight about money and the humiliating scandal that caused them to flee from their old town.

Yet something lurks in the thick undergrowth, a being that hears Agnes’ pain. It promises to help, to rid Agnes and family of all their turmoil. All for a price that little Agnes is too innocent to comprehend. 

Twenty years later and Agnes is known as the lone survivor of a bloodthirsty killer that was never caught. Yet after decades of silence, the killer seems to have resumed its gory spree.

As much as Agnes would like to distance herself from the bloodshed, a passionate and desperate investigator believes that Agnes’ distorted childhood memories to be the key to solving the case. Despite her resistence, Agnes quickly realises that these death are not mindless acts of violence but a call for her to come home and face the hell that awaits her.

A MOST UNWILLING GAME

gothic horror novel
Nightmare Press, 2023

In 1965, Dr Claudette Vladis achieved the near impossible by earning her doctorate in psychology sciences. 

Yet, after a tragic and almost career-ending accident, Claudette takes up a job as a research assistant at Apollyon's Asylum for The Unfortunately Insane. There Claudette struggles to regain her passion and confidence in her practice, despite the warm, yet odd welcoming from her employers. 

The asylum, and the mansion that over shadows it, seems to encase her and the patients, as well as all the bloody secrets that lurk within each room. Claudette's main worry rest with Apollyon's adult children, Lilith and Peter. With the brother roaming free despite his frantic, paranoid behaviour and the seemingly normal sister remains locked away in the tower connected to the asylum.

As Claudette grows familiar with the inhabitants of the land, she begins to unravel the true and twisted intentions behind the asylum and its many occupants.
