Ten dark and twisted tales
by T. R. Hitchman
154 pages ISBN 978-0-9932472-3-1
An old woman harbours a painful secret and meets a troubled man with a dark secret of his own; a narcissistic journalist learns that the camera can tell the truth in more ways than one; and a man makes the worst mistake he ever made in his life in discovering that sometimes you shouldn’t talk to strangers ... Ten stories of love, loss and disappointment with a dark twist that are the product of the imagination of writer, T.R. Hitchman, the new master of modern macabre.
T.R. Hitchman’s first crush was on Christopher Lee. She grew up in love with the eerie stories of Edgar Allan Poe and, as a child of the eighties, was profoundly affected by being allowed to stay up late to watch Hammer House of Horror on TV. She has written for The Gothic Society and her acclaimed novella, The Homecoming, was published electronically in 2014. It is included here in revised form, along with nine other equally brilliant dark and twisted tales in her debut story collection, Child of Winter.
