More About the Author

Contrary to popular myth, William Hussey WAS born on Planet Earth - more precisely in the London borough of Hounslow. The Hussey family has been touring with fairgrounds and circuses for centuries and, in the 1800s, William's great-grandfather had the honour of meeting the legendary Elephant Man!

Early in his life, William and his family settled in the seaside town of Skegness and William spent many a spine-tingling summer helping his uncle, who owned the town's scariest ghost train!

From the age of 8, William lived in a house his dad had built next to an old churchyard. For the next few years the family were disturbed by a ghostly presence - a little old lady in black, her face criss-crossed with deep lines, who used to walk the corridors at night! William saw her on only two occasions, but he often heard her footsteps passing his window. He hears them still... in his dreams...

During the summer holidays, William was entrusted to the care of his grandfathers. They would take him on long walks through the countryside and would make up stories to order: tales full of werewolves, vampires and ghouls! His grandfathers also gave him his love of books - especially tales mystery and imagination, like the Sherlock Holmes stories.

After studying English, Psychology and Law at college and university, William became a lawyer, but found the world of judges and barristers far too boring! So he quit! He wrote a couple of books for grown-ups before being inspired by his little nephew Johnny to write one for kids. He had so much fun writing this book - Witchfinder: Dawn of the Demontide - that he has gone on to write many more, including Witchfinder: Gallows at Twilight; Witchfinder: The Last Nightfall; Haunted; The Nightmare Eater; and Turn Her Face To The Wall.

About the Author

William Hussey was immersed in all things spooky from an early age, growing up in a house next to a churchyard with its own resident ghost. His grandads helped instil his love of storytelling by making up scary stories of ghosts, vampires and werewolves to entertain him on long walks in the countryside. William studied law at university, but soon discovered that he'd rather be a writer. He wrote two books for adults before embarking on writing the spooky Witchfinder series for children.

Format: Paperback
This is a fantastic short read, full of adventure and horror! It's perfect for reluctant readers, especially boys - and the descriptions are truly spine-chilling. I would definitely recommend this short, scary read - and will be suggesting it to our students soon.

Tomasz has to deal with the death of his insightful grandfather, and a vicious bully, and to prove his bravery, he enters a truly horrific house of horrors. Little does he know, his worst nightmares are about to come true...

I received a copy of this book from the publisher to review, but all opinions are mine alone.
