Suffolk Ghost Tales by Kirsty Hartsiotis and Cherry Wilkinson (History Press, 2017)
Suffolk – a peaceful, rural county with big skies, rolling fields, unspoilt beaches, quaint towns and straggling villages. But all is not as quiet as it seems. Could that be the sound of sunken bells on a stormy night? Or an eerie clanking of gibbet chains at a lonely crossroads? Did you just see a desolate face at that upper window and was your 5 star sleep disturbed by phantom fiddling? Not all cats are lucky and beware a north Suffolk Broad in the still, small hours … Illustrated with original drawings by Kirsty Hartsiotis, these thirty tales from all corners of England’s most easterly county are retold with spine chilling freshness. So pull up a chair and prepare to see this gentle landscape in a quite different way.

We had a fantastic launch event at Wenhaston, where Cherry lives - check out this video of me telling one of the tales from the book, Kate's Parlour:
