Greg, a reclusive overnight traffic reporter in Washington, DC, has spent his life in fear, avoiding anything that might shatter his tenuous grasp on normal. It turns out Greg has no idea what it really means to be afraid. After witnessing a horrifying fatal crash, a crash Greg believes he had a hand in causing, he begins to see the ghost of the dead driver. The strain becomes unbearable as Greg attempts to determine why the ghost has sought him out, what it wants from him, and whether any of what is happening is even real.

There is a certain indignity to ‘About the Author’ sections. All of the self-published authors on this platform fill this out, and 98% of us probably write a third person laundry list of accomplishments. These paragraphs read like a list of assets, or some filled out form for a loan, lease or land contract. ‘Lives in,’ ‘works as a,’ ‘hopes to be.’ The blank white boxes with blinking cursors that demand information from all who publish seemed daunting, demonic and demanding at the same time.

Moments ago I did one of these and I am proud to say that I spared you from coming in contact with such drivel. Lets suffice it to say that I am not adept in crafting third person praise directed at myself. I despise third person more than I hate writing in present tense, and that my friends is saying something.

I wrote this book during mornings. It was typed into a taped together Jalopy of a computer, a device that is holding on for dear life by balancing binary code and hope. I had a lot of fun writing it, and I hope you will have fun reading it. If the book sells I will use the proceeds, God willing, to buy a new computer.

I’m an English novelist and short-story writer, living on the Yorkshire coast on a Saxon settlement site a stone’s throw from an ancient spring. The locales of “Torc of Moonlight” are on my doorstep.

History has always fascinated me, especially the day-to-day lives of those who never feature in history’s grand recollections. Undertaking the research necessary to breathe life into these long-ago people regularly throws up direct connections to 21st century living that I exploit in my fiction.

“Torc of Moonlight” is the first of a trilogy of thrillers set in university cities around the eerie North York Moors, and the ebook contains research articles, an author interview, and opening excerpt from Book 2 “The Bull At The Gate”.

Some of my previous print novels have been relaunched as ebooks. “Hostage of the Heart” explores the role of mediaeval battle hostages and is set on the English-Welsh borders on the cusp of the country’s last invasion (1066). “Beneath The Shining Mountains” (originally paperbacked as “A Wife For Winterman”) is a story of love and misplaced honour among a First Nation people on the plains of America in the 1830s. Much of the insight for this latter novel came from my years as a re-enactor of the period – yes, in northern England – the Brits are renowned for being eccentric.

My short fiction covers a variety of genres, from the expected historical and women’s fiction, to horror, literary, crime, SF and fantasy. Kindle ebook “Contribution to Mankind and other stories of the Dark” holds five speculative fiction tales.

For many years I’ve been teaching fiction-writing in various forms, and from this developed the non-fiction “Reading A Writer’s Mind: Exploring Short Fiction – First Thought To Finished Story”. If you’ll forgive the chuckle, it rather does what it says in the title. If you are finding your way into writing, as a hobby or a new career, it can help iron out technical questions.

If you wish to be kept up to date, drop by my blog http://lindaacaster.blogspot.com to read opening excerpts of all my available fiction, or join my mailing list for an emailed newsletter. I can also be found at www.lindaacaster.co.uk and on Facebook and Twitter – all the usual places.

Thanks for reading this. I hope you’ll consider reading some of my work, and enjoy the books as much as others have.

L.C. Evans began her writing career with short stories and essays before branching out into novel writing. More than a hundred of her stories and humorous essays have been published in such magazines as Alfred Hitchcock’s Mystery Magazine, Woman’s World, Horse Illustrated, and Ladies Circle among many others. Over the years Ms. Evans has won awards in writing contests and has kept busy honing her craft by taking writing courses and attending writing seminars. She was recently a featured presenter at the Carolinas Writers Conference in Wadesboro, North Carolina. After traditional publication of Talented Horsewoman, the first of her Leigh McRae horse mystery novels, Ms. Evans decided to take control of her career by trying her hand at indie publishing.

“All this means,” she says, “is that I pay for my own editing, proofreading, cover design, formatting, and all the other publishing expenses. However, I also get complete control over my books, and that means I can keep the price low. Readers on a budget will still have access to my books. I care deeply about all of my readers and I take great joy in the many fan letters readers send me.”
