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.

Belated Happy New Year

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.

Hello There!

Fancy meeting you here!

Well, I don't know about any of you but I definitely feel that I have lost a few days. Not lost exactly. More like slept through!

It is a weird sensation knowing that a whole 24 hrs has gone by and all you did is sleep isn't it? It is for me. I started out with the best of intentions on Saturday - ploughed through the day to the best of my ability ready for an evening with the Stoke Haunted team. Part way through the night/early morning, I began to rapidly feel unwell so packed myself off home early. I slept like a log and woke up before the alarm. However, I felt so unwell that I ended up returning to bed a mere hour and a half later where I continued to sleep the day away. Now that amount of sleeping is not normal for me anymore (since I have come off the super strong medication a while ago) However I just could not keep my eyes open. With the exception of turning over or having a quick drink, I slept right through until this morning.

Although I am no where near as tired as before it seems I am left with a lingering snotty nose and a general unwell feeling. I would like to extend my thanks to my little family unit for holding the fort and looking after me yesterday - it wasn't how any of us saw the day panning out. Today though, I have tried to catch up from where I left off Saturday day time. Most of the write-up is done from Saturday evening, but, with me leaving early I have to wait for the notes from the others who remained so that I can account for when I wasn't there. I hope the notes read more interesting to mine as not alot seemed to occur for our team. Hey Ho, it's never going to always be super active or monumental. However, there were a few firsts for us and those staff members from the venue, so, keep your eyes peeled for the write-up when it goes live in a few days.

Until then my dears, I am off for more tissues.

Good Morning All,

This is a quick news post to apologies to any readers who noticed that yesterdays' post had numerous editorial errors within it. These errors included simple points that I should double check before posting anything live. My spelling has always been terrible but those are easily rectified. I have never claimed to be perfect at spelling or grammar, they have always been a weakness. Yes, I know that is odd considering I am meant to be a competent writer. Desite my weaknesses, I failed to proof read my post before publishing yesterday for a number or reasons. Ultimately, the mistakes made were inexcusable. I hereby apologies for any failure to do the job correctly and thank those that have brought the errors to light.

On a lighter note, I have completed my write up for last weekends investigation. It will go live as soon as the team have approved it so please keep a look out for it. I am now off to deliver a custom made keyring to an old friend.

Once again, I am truely sorry.
