What We All Saw




'I loved everything about this book – its humour, its horror, its sublime storytelling.' VIKKI WAKEFIELD

Witches only exist in stories. Everyone knows that. But what if the stories are real?

FOUR FRIENDS. FOUR TRUTHS. ONE NIGHTMARE.

If you wander into the wood …
If you hear scratching sounds from the Old Quarry …
If you go too close to the edge …

WATCH. OUT.

Praise for What We All Saw

I loved everything about this book – its humour, its horror, its sublime storytelling. What We All Saw honours the ties of childhood friendship, with shades of Stephen King’s “The Body” (Stand By Me) and the nostalgic feel of a retro classic.

Vikki Wakefield, author of THIS IS HOW WE CHANGE THE ENDING

A tense and atmospheric tale of childhood fears turned frighteningly real.

Sean Williams, author of HER PERILOUS MANSION

A delightfully creepy horror story for lower to middle secondary readers . . . Above all, this is a suspense-filled story that will enthral young readers who are interested in horror but are not quite ready for the likes of Stephen King.
