It's the last day of the #AtoZChallenge - we made it! For my last fictional phantom I am taking us to China - I hope you enjoy it.
We've finally made it, the last day of the AtoZChallenge and the letter Z, which is always a little troublesome. For Fictional Phantoms today I have a chap who is more demonic than ghostly in the incarnation I have chosen, bu...

I couldn't find a Fictional Phantom for X on the #AtoZChallenge so I made one up :) Come and meet my own creation.

Today we have two very nasty men who became nasty Fictional Phatoms for V on the #AtoZChallenge. One should have been helping people and didn't, the other was a ruler who abused his people. Come and see who I have chosen for today.
Welcome to my blog to share the letter V on the AtoZChallenge. My apologies this was not up at midnight - somehow I totally forgot to schedule it :). Today I have two nasty ghosts for you who were bad in life and bad in death...

Today I only have one Fictional Phantom for you, but that's because she deserved a post all by herself. Check out my choice for R on the #AtoZChallenge.

Today is a different kind of ghost - still dead, but more glowy than gory :) Come and check out my #AtoZChallenge post for O.
Have we really already reached O? Welcome once again to my blog and Fictional Phantoms as we make our way through the alphabet. Today's ghost isn't that scary unless you like to wear black a lot and have a need to rule the ga...

I have two relatively nice ghosts for you today, both stuck in their own way, but making their own story. Please join me for W in Fictional Phantoms for the #AtoZChallenge  
Welcome to W day on the AtoZChallenge. Today I have two tragic ghosts who were both murdered, but did not come back as vengeful demonic entities. One remained because of love, the other to annoy people. Sam Wheat (Ghost) S...

Only one Fictional Phantom today because, for some reason, U was hard :) (U is usually easy). I hope you enjoy him, he brings back memories for me from my childhood. #AtoZChallenge
Welcome to Fictional Phantoms for the letter U on the AtoZChallenge. We're almost at the end, but I still have a few good ones left for you. Today is a ghost doing his best to protect his home in the only way he knows how. I ...

I have two classic fictional phantoms for you today for the letter Q in the #AtoZChallenge . Q is not the easiest letter of the alphabet, but I hope you enjoy what I have come up with :)
Welcome to my Fictional Phantoms, day 17 and to the letter Q. Now I had trouble thinking of Qs to begin with, but then found two phantoms, one whom many of you will know, the other, I suspect fewer with know about. I hadn't h...

What else could we have for the letter P except the Premier Pirate? Every good adventure tale on the high seas needs a pirate. Ours are both classics of literature who have been terrorising those who stand against them for generations. Help us choose in…
Help us decide who is the Premier Pirate from classic literature. We have two greats for you to choose from for P on the AtoZChallenge at Wittegen Press.

I have four novels out there at the moment Cat's Call a YA contemporary fantasy story, its sequel Cat's CreationSacrifice of An Angel, a fantasy/contemporary crime novel I wrote with my sister and Advent, an urban vampire novel, as well as quite a few short stories and anthologies that can be found at Wittegen Press.

I have also written fanfiction for many a year which can be found at My Livejournal (beren_wrties), or my AO3 account.
