Spinetinglers: Frankenstein’s Daughter

Lizzy loves school, even though she’s not the most popular person there. In fact, she’s only got one friend… Alice. So when Alice joins the list of missing girls Lizzy goes on full alert — against her parents wishes, she decides to find out what happened to her best friend.
And now there’s a new girl in school… who has exactly the same eyes as her best friend! But no one will believe Lizzy and her crazy theories about the new girl, so she must take matters into her own hands and go to the new girl’s creepy old house on the hill… the truth might just give her a bit of a headache.


I collaborated on this story with a writer called Jack Simmonds. Jack has a few short horror novels for children; think along the lines of Goosebumps. He’s working now on a series called Spinetinglers, with various authors, creating spooky tales for kids.

Jack kindly accepted me as a writer on the title ‘Frankenstein’s Daughter’. Fans of my other work can find this piece on Amazon kindle, right here! This is novelette size, or a hefty short story, just like Goosebumps and co.

This is a bit of a departure from my usual stuff, which tends to be more fantasy than horror and also aims at adults. I enjoyed the challenge of writing in a different style. That’s not to say that I toned down my signature strangeness much! A little fright never hurt a kid. I mean, in a book. You know.

If you enjoy it, check out some of Jack’s other Spinetinglers:
