Four contemporary spooky short stories:
So what happens after you die? Do you go to heaven, or hell? Or do you go to a special place fashioned just for you based on the life you'd lived in the real world? Based on how you treated people? What you did to them?
And do ghosts exist? Do they roam the earth and plague the living, persuade them to do things they shouldn't do?
Two brothers and their tale follow; their journey through life and death.
Do you believe in ghosts? Some do.
Running with the Train
Sarah has always been lonely. Searching for a love she's begun to believe will never come. Her family and friends depend, need her, but they can't give her what she wants. True, eternal love. Like the wolves have.
So she goes on an adventure of a lifetime to the Grand Canyon; rides the train from Williams to the South Rim and sees these huge wolves running alongside in the evening twilight; scurrying unbelievably below on the Canyon's ledges among the trees. She's told there are no wolves but she hears their haunting cries. No one else sees or hears them. Just her.
Has her loneliness made her crazy?
The Banshee and the Witch
What would you do to live forever, stay young forever? To find true love again?
And if you were a white witch with the magical powers to make it happen...and the secret of how to do it, would you?
So when the banshee comes calling for you one rainy dark night you'll do what you have to do to get what you desire the most. More time.
Too Close to the Edge....
Artist Penelope had been looking forward to going with her husband, sister and brother-in-law to see the Grand Canyon...even though she was terrified of heights and, when she got there, couldn't bear to get too close to the edge. She watched people balancing on one foot, acting foolish, taking photos, oblivious of the death waiting below them. It scared her.
Especially when a woman relates a story of a small child that fell into the Canyon the day before. Over the edge.
Then she sees a young girl go over the rim and no one will believe her.
For there was no child that had died - that day anyway.
Was she seeing things that weren't there, or was there another explanation?

Spooky and Creative
Spooky, creative, and original
The woman on the train.
The woman on the train. Haunting.
The title says it all. Spooky. That is a very specific word in the genre. Not Horror (violent), not a thriller (high action), but spooky (haunting atmosphere).
Love this book, love the author. Performance was also excellent.
Wonderfully crafted tales!
