So, what's it all about? Well, I'm glad you asked. Here's the blurb.
Life doesn't always end at death
Elliot is a burned-out firefighter on the verge of suicide in a modern reimagining of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. Can a succession of ghostly visitors one Christmas Eve help Elliot face his demons before it’s too late?
Following the feature story are five additional tales of supernatural and psychological suspense.
A solitary night janitor battles a sinister man in black (Janitor). A firefighter fails to heed an otherworldly warning (Death Alarm). A happily married man spirals into obsession over a comment by an internet troll (CatchTime). A man runs for his life down a dark country lane pursued by a stranger with murder in mind (Skelwaller Lane). A paramedic’s haunting secret threatens to destroy her life (DOA).
Written from the soul of a firefighter who has seen his own struggles, A Firefighter Christmas Carol and Other Stories is an emotional ride.
