The Official Reports 2012

Well good morning folks,

How are you all feeling today?

I m feeling in a better mood although the sudden lack of activity with putting the books together has my body somewhat confused. I did manage to get a fifth book out last week that was for the paranormal team that I write for...it is a collection of last years reports with some other bits and bobs thrown in so I would love for you to have a look using your kindle or kobo devices. 

Well, I am off for a bit as trying to find something productive to do. Take care everyone and be sure to check out the links on this site to see the books and more...thank you.

More and More

Afternoon All,

Well last night and today I have been ploughing through all of my old written material that i had saved but done nothing with. This has resulted in two more books being published via kindle. One is a childrens story suitable for the whole family and the other is a collection if adult-based short stories. This will probably be the last one published for a while unless the paranormal team I write for want their reports and things making into one.

What kind of things do you like to read?

All the best.

Hello to One and All,

It seems like I am always full of apologies whenever I post a news update and today is no different. I have been absent whilst finishing my auto biography (of my childhood) which I was lucky enough to get published via Amazon and Kindle yesterday. If that was not good enough I also managed to get a collective works of my poetry published yesterday on Amazon and Kindle.

I hope that you will find time to have a read as I have worked so hard on them both. The links will be on the "links" page on this site. I am already working on publications three and four so I am busy busy!

Anyway, after a quick clean up of the site I am heading back to the grindstone. I wish you all well for 2013 and thanks for following me.

n.b the books are entitled "Childhood Lost" (by me of course) and "Eclectically Poetic" (again by me - just incase you would wish to purchase my ebooks

Good Morning All,

Above is the picture of the Stoke Haunted team members who were able to attend The Silken Strand Hotel in Leek last Saturday evening for an investigation. As luck would have it there was a celeb in the building...Big Brother's first ever winner, presenter of numerous DIY shows and charity figure-head, Craig Phillips.

Not only did Craig spare us some time for this picture, but he also took the time to sit down with me for an interview and to record the opening sequence for our latest investigation footage. He was down-to-earth and lovely. He also became genuinely interested in what we do and how we do it. Bless him, he even pulled his friend and the manager of The Silken Strand into  chat with us because he got excited by some of the photographs our medium Paddy was showing him.

The write-up will be done very soon and should be live within the next couple of days so please keep watching out for it.

Thanks so much to Craig Phillips, Terry Rogers and all of you too.


My Little Bit Of Good News

Posted by Claire Atherton on October 22, 2012 at 11:50 AM Comments comments (0)

Afternoon you merry bunch,

Well, I have had a good day-ish!

Firstly I met with the faculty of forensic science at Staffordshire University to have a chat about what they had in mind for me to do during their "Crime and Wine" night in December. Thankfully it is not going to be a seminar styled gathering, (although I will be at the front of a full lecture theatre with three of my peers). It is going to be an informal char - well as informal as it gets when stood infront of 250 people. I will be one part of a four part panel who are going to share readings (Mel Sherratt - crime novelist) and compelling insights and comparisons from former police and forensic scientists. What I am doing there I here you ask, I too have asked myself that question and I also asked the faculty today. Afterall. I am not yet published within the crime market. However, I was assured that I would provide a good point of view from someone trying to get published and because of my film experience eg: working out suitable stunts etc.

Either way, it is going to be fun. There is going to be lots of other things going on at the university, mock-up crime scenes and lots of things for you to try and experience. Nt to mention the glass of wine on offer too. For £5 you get entry (over 18s only) and a glass of wine - so it is a good way to explore smaller courses and/or all the angles that crime knowledge can be used for.

I hope to see you there. I have also posted a new poem on "My Works" page called Good Vs Bad.

Thats all for now peeps as I have my blog to do for the whole paranormal thing that I do.

Thanks for reading and taking an interest.
