Out soon: 'Last Spring' - short story by Pamela Kelt


Here’s a sneak preview of the cover of my latest story, Last Spring.

In fact, at 10,000 words, it’s more of a mini-book – and it’s just out on Smashwords.

It’s the second in a quartet of supernatural stories inspired by the key events of the calendar year – the winter solstice, vernal equinox, summer solstice and autumn equinox.

Richard Lucy is a book illustrator, living in the quiet, Warwickshire village of Hinton Charlecote (inspired by a recent visit to Hampton Lucy).

Despite his hay fever, spring is his favourite season – until this year, when strange start happening in his rural idyll.


A Supermoon ... a solar eclipse ... a vernal equinox. All on the same day?
What on earth could go wrong?

Each tale is has a vintage, botanical theme, featuring new characters from different eras.

A Walk in the Park was the beginning, my response to a challenge to write a Christmas ghost story.

It’s a Victorian/Edwardian winter’s ghost story with a romantic theme. Set one midwinter afternoon, it introduces Lilian Ravenscroft, a ladies’ companion, with aspirations ...

The moon. The stars. One malevolent entity. A supernatural romance of astronomical proportions.

Death will never be the same again.


For a taster, there’s a mini trailer on Youtube.
