About Caroline Wood

I have always loved writing and can't remember a time when I didn't write.
If not actually writing I was usually creating stories to tell my sister. Luckily, she was happy to listen.
And if not doing either of those, I made up stories in my head. I still do.
An overheard snippet of conversation is often all it takes...
I like to explore the darkness, strangeness or unexpected behind apparent ordinariness.
The nice curtains that are drawn to hide a corpse on a rocking horse. That sort of thing.
But not so much blatant horror, rather the deeply unsettling sense of things being askew, unreliable, unsafe, and a little bit twisted.

Review by: ChrisWalker on Aug. 29, 2015 :
Great characters throughout each story. Some stories are weird while others are pure horror but every one of these dark tales was most enjoyable.

Review by: Kevin Lokten on May 29, 2015 :
Well I agree these stories are scary and a bit nerve racking at times.
Some are a little bit funny but then the horror comes into play.
I found them well written and a pleasure to read.
Thanks for the free book.

Review by: Trent F on May 22, 2015 :
If you like weird horror in short bursts this is the book to get.
From the dead in their coffin thinking and plotting to a couple of fanatical strange old ladies. (and everything in between)
A recommended read if you're into freaky stories.

Review by: Peter Stephan on May 22, 2015 :
This is a book that was recommended to me.
Very different and twisted stories. You aren't over reading one when you're thrown into the next. A great mix of short reads that gives you a shiver down your spine.
Most enjoyable.

Dark tales and strange happenings. Weird neighbours and peculiar people. This anthology has everything. Each story has it's own spooky appeal.
Looking forward to more from this author.
(Will read Noah Quince on the weekend) looking forward to that.

What a great collection of stories. I think my favourite was 'Grave Misgivings' but every one was so different it was hard to choose. I guess it's better not to choose and say they were all very good and a pleasure to read.
Thanks for the free book. :)

I found this collection of short stories at another website otherwise I never would have looked for this book.
I agree with the other reviewers, this is a collection of wonderful, bizarre and intriguing stories. Each is unique and the author is a very talented writer indeed.
Caroline Wood shows great versatility in her writing skills and I do not hesitate in giving this collective works the highest recommendation. 5 stars is too few.

Oh yeh, this is the kind of stuff I like. I agree with Linda, bizarre, creepy, scary, twisted.
A great read and plenty of stories, each totally different.

Review by: Linda Arditto on May 5, 2015 :
Had to write this again as I made a gramma error the first time HaaaHaa.
I've only read half this book but it is enough to be able to leave a review.
A few words come to mind; bizarre, creepy, scary, twisted, oh I could go on.......
I wish I could write as well as Caroline Wood.
She is an author in the true sense of the word.

They say; 'A professional author is an amateur author who didn't give up.'

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book and look forward to reading her other works.

Review by: Frances Clarke on May 4, 2015 :
These are robust, vivid stories crafted from startling ideas; in Growing Things buried animals are reborn as if they are plants. In Foothold, a woman has hands for feet. Wings – I don’t get the title, but the story is a well-written feast of gothic sumptuousness and in Shaggy Dog Story a son sends his mother telepathic pictures of what he wants.... the whole collection bristles with surprises and sometimes it's dark and sometimes it's funny - definitely a writer to watch. Highly recommended

Review by: GODFREYGOODBODY on April 25, 2015 :
What a great collection of stories, all very different but with a common thread of 'what the...' running through them. Some you really don't want to read before you go to bed at night, like the title story. Others, like Growing Things, have such wonderful characters, Cobb for instance, that you can't help but become attached to. And if you've ever had to undergo a day's crap training, and we all have, you'll fall over laughing reading Touchy Feely...well to begin with you will.
