Why didn't I like the story? My previous two stories The Ghost of St. Mary's and The Rocking Lantern were much longer, and I thought I was short-changing my friends. Plus, the story never felt right to me. As the writer, I felt the story lacked something, I couldn't tell you what.
Version 1. This version was only seen on line for two weeks; over the Halloween period in 2011, this is my first published short story, and appeared on the special on line special forVintage Script magazine. My friend -- Emma Oram --- who ran the magazine told me, it was this story which prompted her to do the page.
Version 2. This is the most recognised version of the story, and appears in the book A Spooky Fall Harvest by The Peacock Writers, the children's charity I write for. This is the family version of my story.
Version 3. This version is the one I wrote last year, and has the adult/spooky ending. Versions 2 & 3 are on sale separately, on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
Special edition. This is the only book which contains all three versions, which is why it's a special edition, you get a previously unseen version of the story, and all for only $1
