About steve higgs
When Steve Higgs wrote his debut novel, Paranormal Nonsense, he was a captain in the British Army. He would like to pretend that he had one of those careers that must be blacked out and generally denied by the government, and that he has to change his name and move constantly because he is still on the watch list in several countries. In truth, though, he started out as a mechanic - not like Jason Statham in the film by that name, sneaking around as a hitman, but more like one of those sleazy guys who charges a fortune and keeps your car for a week even though the only thing you went in for was a squeaky door hinge.
At school, he was largely disinterested in all subjects except creative writing, for which he won his first prize at the age of ten. However, calling it the first prize he won suggests that there were other prizes, which is not the case. Awards may yet come, but in the meantime, he enjoys writing mystery and thriller novels and claims to have more than a hundred books forming a restless queue in his mind because they are desperate to be written.
Now retired from the military, he lives in southeast England with a duo of lazy sausage dogs. Surrounded by rolling hills, brooding castles, and vineyards, he doubts he'll ever leave, the beer is just too good.

I have a thing with werewolves, which is to say that I hate them. Of course, it’s the 21st century, so my vampire assistant, Indigo, likens my bias to a form of racism, and when we come across one being hunted for no good reason other than the same prejudice I held, I feel no choice but to offer my protection.
Yet even as I say the words, I can’t help but wonder if my decision won’t work out to be a lot dumber than it sounds, and all too soon the very danger I’m trying to protect an innocent from comes knocking on my door.
I might be doing the right thing, but I know it’s going to cost me. I just have no idea how much. When I find out … well, let’s just say it was more than I could ever have imagined and now I’m going to shove the fight they wanted right down their throats.
… and his fireside spooky ghost story is too good not to investigate.
Patricia expects to figure this one out before happy hour arrives, but when the sun goes down and her client goes missing, the game gets downright scary.

What’s worse than one dead body? Two, right?
It’s not so much the number of bodies that Patricia needs to worry about, it’s how far up the mystery meter they score, and this latest case is a doozey.
