This is a Christmas story. It’s also a ghost story, as all good Christmas stories should be. It has a spooky old house, a creepy housekeeper, a library with a very unusual selection of books, and at least one talking animal. It also has Lucy Wilson and Hobo Kostinen, who are just returning from another one of their strange adventures… and heading straight into another.
Released between Christmas and New Year of 2021, The Gray Lady of Martyr’s House is my third Christmas story featuring Lucy and Hobo. The stories are slowly melding together into their own little micro-continuity and I can’t wait to write another. Sitting under my Christmas tree to write them has become something of a tradition and I never write of word of the Christmas story until the decorations are up and I’ve eaten my first mince pie!
