SOME SECRETS ARE MADE TO BE UNCOVERED.
Sixteen-year-old Jamie McGuiness’s sister is dead. Sinking into a deep depression, he frequents the lighthouse where her body was discovered, unaware of the sinister forces surrounding him.
When an angry spirit latches onto Jamie, he’s led down a dark and twisted path, one that uncovers old family secrets, destroying everything Jamie ever believed in.
Caught between the world of the living and the vengeful dead, Jamie fights the pull of the other side. It’s up to Jamie to settle old scores or no one will rest in peace—but, first, he has to survive.
Praise for BENEATH THE LIGHTHOUSE
“Beneath the Lighthouse grabs you by the nether regions from the word go. Then it squeezes. Hard. With a nailed glove … A truly scary ghost story … a powerful ‘coming of age’ drama … a young man growing into adulthood against a backdrop of despair and quite shocking abuse … unpredictable and ever building. Blood and bone revenge, retribution and salvation. The strength of friendship, the power of love. You feel the dread and the underlying fear … not your typical tale. And what a tale it is.” ―EM Faustus

- What makes you cringe?
I hate when people use social media to post EVERYTHING in their daily lives. No, I don’t want to know what you’re cooking for dinner or how many rolls of toilet paper you have gone through in a week. But saying that, each to their own.
- Do you obsessively plot out each point or just go with the flow?
It all depends on my mood or how the voices of my character’s are speaking to me. Some books require plotting and storyboards, while others I go freestyle and let the story take me wherever it wants to go. I’m not overly strict. I’m fairly easy going when it comes to the writing process.
- Is there a word you love to use?
“Kerfuffle” and in my busy house, it is used on a regular basis. I must admit, my children glare at me like I’ve lost my marbles. But it does calm me down when I perhaps want to use more colorful language.
