About Steve Merrifield

I’m in my thirties and live in the UK in Leigh-on-Sea with my long-time partner, our three cats--and a life-size Dalek and Cyberman. I have a love of supernatural horror and an overactive imagination which I channel into my work and I have many plans for future works.

Another excellent story from Mr Merrifield. The only problem is that I want more now and I'll have to wait until next month. Great characters with a mystery inside of the mystery. I really enjoyed it.

Great short story skilfully combining Victorian language style with modern horror imagery. The narrator character is very engaging, and will instantly draw you into his story smoothly with his tone of interest and intrigue. My only want is that it was all a little crammed in, but I have to remember that it is a short story and to satisfy my curiosity about Emily Darkwood I will just have to download and read them all!
Highly recommended read :)

If you are looking for a story that removes you from your current life and transports you to another time with vivid imagery and dynamic characters, Thief of Faces is the book for you! The Victorian decadence and dark secrets are certain to draw you in. Just be advised, that if you plan on getting anything done, once you start reading you will not be able to put it down.
