Hi, I’m Leilanie, the good witch of the North. Look what I conjured up with my magic wand.

Happy Halloween! This is my author proof copy of my forthcoming novel, The Fairy Lights. It will be my fourth novel, and the second of my Belfast Ghosts Series. Wanna know what it’s about?

The Fairy Lights: the ghost of Christmas that never was

Belfast Ghosts Series: Standalone Book 2 of 3

When Aisling moves into an old, Edwardian house in the university area of Stranmillis, Belfast, she soon discovers that her student digs are haunted. The house, bought by her grandfather decades ago, is also home to a spirit known by the nickname Jimbo.

As yuletide approaches, and Aisling’s Christmas fairy lights attract mischief from Jimbo, she seeks to find out more about the restless entity. With the help of a local psychic and friends from her History with Irish course, Aisling uncovers dark, buried truths. What is the connection with Friar’s Bush Graveyard just around the corner? What does Jimbo’s dusty book of the Oak King and Holly King, hidden in the attic, have to reveal? What will Aisling’s journey into the darkness of the spirit world reveal about Jimbo – and herself?

Stay tuned… It’s coming soon on 10th November 2022

In case you didn’t know it, Halloween is my favourite themed season; what kind of horror writer would I be if it wasn’t? All of my novels pictured are suitable Samhain reads. From left to right, here’s why:

Gods of Avalon Road is an urban fantasy novel set in London with pagan and occult themes.

The Buddha’s Bone is a dark psychological story set in Japan.

The Blue Man and The Fairy Lights are ghost horror books 1 and 2 of 3 from my Belfast Ghosts Series.

If you are currently reading any of them during this spooky season, then enjoy, and of course~

Happy Halloween!
