Broken Voices

‘Brilliantly atmospheric’ - Observer

Broken Voices is a chilling ghost story set a hundred years ago in a Fenland cathedral city. It’s Christmas, and two lonely schoolboys at the end of childhood are forced into an unwanted companionship. One of them is terrified of what the future holds.

Does music have its ghosts? Its victims? Something is stirring in the cathedral that both echoes an ancient tragedy and seems to offer a chance of future happiness. One thing is certain. Broken voices make false promises. And their lies may prove fatal.

Broken Voices is 23,000-word novella. It is available in print form in the collection Fireside Gothic, and also individually as an ebook.
