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.

Great characters throughout each story. Some stories are weird while others are pure horror but every one of these dark tales was most enjoyable.

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.

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.

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.
