A RENOWNED Redditch author, whose work covers the spookier side of life in the Midlands has given up her life of retirement to pen another book – just in time for Halloween.
Anne Bradford, author and lecturer on ghosts, hauntings and the paranormal in the Midlands, has written a number of books drawing upon local history and personal accounts to create ghost stories that aim to thrill and chill, and she has just put pen to paper making start on another one.
Covering areas including Worcester, Droitwich, Malvern, Evesham and Studley, many of the surreal and spooky tales have been collected from Redditch, and her books cover everything from haunted pubs and unexplained apparitions to murders and historical battles.
She said: “There are so many ghosts all over the place it is just a matter of having people to see them and write about it.”
“I like ghost stories because they cover so many levels. They’re a good story and they send shivers up your spine, but as well as this they capture that moment in time for history.”
Her passion for oral history and drive to document untold stories and catalogue the unexplained has lead to her to write more than a dozen books.
Many of these are available to buy online and a few are available in Waterstones in Redditch.
