LOCAL AUTHOR
This novel is based on legends and myths of a once magnificent family estate.
"The boundaries of fact and fiction, superstition and belief blur together in this complex and gripping novel."
With inspiration from The Jungle Book, this young protagonist is raised in a graveyard by ghosts, after his family is brutally murdered.  
This perfectly disturbing short story " is relayed by an unnamed narrator who endeavors to convince the reader of his sanity while simultaneously describing a murder he committed." We would consider it a horrifying classic and must-read.
Take a trip down memory lane with this short, scary story collection that has been giving kids nightmares since the 80's.
