Editorial Reviews


Even though a fairly short story with it being a novella you really get a feel for the characters and my favourite one had to be Queeny

Biddy Trott is a novella which is a mixture of horror and gothic fairy tale. It is one made up of a myth/legend surrounding the said lady.

Abner is someone who just happens to be passing through when he gets caught up in the whole myth as well as getting friendly with Queeny. Even though a fairly short story with it being a novella you really get a feel for the characters and my favourite one had to be Queeny.

The story is set in era's gone by. There is a very oldy worldy feel to it and it's like been taken back in time. Sadly it's not a time scale that I would like to go back to as would miss all the modern facilities that we have, like toilets for one!

I have to give a special mention to the legendary rhyme regarding Biddy Trott, it is brilliant and shows just how talented this author is to not only be able to write stories but to be able to write poetry/rhymes also.

Biddy Trott is a wonderful novella to lose yourself into. It is best read on a night to add to the whole eeriness of the story. Perfect for readers who love stories like The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Great read!

Authentic Gothic Horror

Amazon Verified Purchase

Where do I begin? For fans of authentic gothic horror Biddy Trott is a must read. Rare do you find today an author who holds true to the classic style of gothic horror. I stumbled across Biddy Trott recently and I was hooked from the opening lines. McCarthy's writing is poetic and dark and mesmerizing-encompassing everything fans of gothic horror appreciate and crave. While I am tempted to go into the depths of the story, I won't share any spoilers, but I will say the spins in the story kept me guessing, cheering for some characters, and absorbed by the others.

Writing gothic horror takes a special skill. McCarthy has proven with Biddy Trott she has that ever so rare ability to tap into the senses and craft a story full of characters that will keep the reader immersed in the story.

I'd recommend Biddy Trott many times over.

A great gothic novella!

Format: Kindle Edition

In this novella you'll find history, myth and horror. There's also such a great gothic atmosphere created from Donna's ability to describe her characters and village location of the tale.

Lord Abner arrives in the small market town of Royal Rumny, not knowing about the evil that lurks within the village streets. His privileged upbringing is no protection against what he witnesses. What is it about Biddy Trott that has such a hold over the village?

Although a novella, this story is well developed and is very pacey. The combination of character personalities mix well (and sometimes conflict well too, ) and a special mention has to go to the poem about Biddy which was one of my favourite parts of the story.

About the Author

Donna Maria was brought up in the idyllic surroundings of rural Oxfordshire, where adventures were spent, on hazy summer days that seemed to last for an eternity. Always a great reader, Alice in Wonderland was her bible, and her copy was always neatly stashed away in her bag, wherever the promise of magic and discovery sent her. The youngest in a family of six brothers she grew up with a scholarly knowledge of both girls and boys, her best friends of all her two nearest siblings. Her imagination is limitless, and when she said farewell to Oxfordshire, heart-breaking though it was, the bustling and forever changing demographic of Southampton and its urban creatures of both good and more questionable forces, proved a treat for the dark and fantastical realms, in her mind. Epic poetry, lengthy school assignments, and tales around urban campfires filled her days. At school leaving age she decided that even more knowledge, of our beautiful language, was exactly what her hungry mind required. She went to a City College, studying English Literature, English Language, Sociology and Spanish, finding the Sociology ripe with tales from folklore and beliefs, to her absolute delight, and the Spanish, a wonderful addition to stories that brewed in her fertile mind. She excelled at all, the English subjects especially, and upon leaving college decided that there were so many other ways to fill her note books with worthy subjects, and became gainfully employed working for the MOD, no less! On applying for a job as the Receptionist for an engineering company, part of the MOD, her talents for attention to detail and a fantastic memory were discovered and soon her role was finely tuned for somebody of her scope. Enough said! Obviously she has signed the Official Secrets act, and can never disclose more, and although this was an incredibly exciting time in her life, she maintains that each and every episode so far has been equal in excitement; the mind is a strange and un-tamed beast, and in some is all consuming. The produce can sometimes be really quite spectacular. Biddy Trott is Donna’s third literary work, Gothic in nature (as is her passion) saying that she finds the language and taboo subject matters tantalising and exquisite.
