The Leper House

Amazon’s number one Gothic Romance
Seawick's medieval leper house was once a home to outcasts. They built it outside the Suffolk town so it would not infect the healthy with its horrors. But Seawick itself is long gone, washed away by the North Sea. Only the Leper House remains, a shelter for the unwanted.

A bereaved man strays there on a stormy night when the bell tolls once again beneath the waves. In a nearby house, a woman waits for history to repeat itself. When time isn’t what it seems, nor is love and nor are ghosts. And nor are we.

The Leper House is a 19,000-word novella. It is available in print form in the collection
Fireside Gothic, and also individually as an ebook.
