Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Nearly forty years ago I found myself in Adams, Tennessee. It's not a well-known place anymore, except to students of the strange, but in the Nineteenth Century it was one of the most celebrated towns in the United States. It was the site of the Bell Witch incident. Despite the name, it was actually a ghost haunting. When I was there, more than a hundred years later, the town was still under the shadow of the Bell Witch. Businesses used Bell Witch-influenced logos in their signs. Not only could every single resident give detailed instructions on how to reach the original farm where the haunting took place, they all had stories passed down through the generations. And it was a fine irony that the mayor's surname at the time was Strange.

When I began developing Little Wyvern, the village at the centre of "Village of Ghosts," I took some cues from Adams, Tennessee. Anyone looking to develop a village as a ghost-themed tourist destination would want as many ghosts as possible, which would mean dragging every single family skeleton out of its closet, kicking and screaming if necessary. Secrets would be bared. All secrets. More than enough motive for murder...which is exactly what happens in the formerly sleepy village of Little Wyvern. Add in some quirky English characters, a hidden adversary, and a Warlock back after more than 350 years, and you have a mystery worthy of DCI Arthur Ravyn and DS Leo Stark from the Hammershire Constabulary.

About the Author

Ralph E. Vaughan is the author of several Sherlock Holmes novels and stories, such as "The Adventure of the Ancient Gods," "The Dreaming Detective," and "Sherlock Holmes and the Coils of Time." He is the creator of the popular Paws & Claws series, which began with "Paws & Claws: A Three Dog Mystery," in which three amazing dogs protect their neighborhood, thwart the evil plans of the nefarious Feral Gang, and occasionally save the world; the series continued with "A Flight of Raptors," and "K-9 Blues." The fourth book in the series, "The Death and Life of an American Dog" finds the dogs saving an Army dog, and in the fifth, "Dogs of S.T.E.A.M.", the dogs travel back to a steampunk version of London in 1887. Most recently, he authored "Shadows Against the Empire," an interplanetary steampunk adventure set in 1882, and a second steampunk novel, "Amidst Dark Satanic Mills." He is a long-time resident of Chula Vista, California, which is the setting of "Paws & Claws." He is married and has two children, a daughter who is a playwright and a son who is a conductor for the BNSF.
