John T. Gaffield is an automotive engineer in southeast Michigan with a wife and two children. He published his first novel, "Heir to Winston Manor," in October 2010 as an eBook. John has a second ebook, "The Wahl House Curse," this time set in mid-Michigan, which is now available as of January 2011.


John released a short horror story for Kindle in mid-January 2011 called "The Ghost of Birch River Cabin." This haunting tale is set in a secluded cabin along the fictional Birch River. Other short stories are "Winter Visitor" and "Slow Down." All are currently free at Amazon (USA at least). A fourth short story "Denning Swamp - A Short Ghost Story" is now available.


John uses his past memories and his local knowledge combined with his engineering sense of detail to create realistic ghost stories. He has an interest in ghost stories and creepy old haunted houses.


John'a third haunted house novel "Alone Again" was published in September 2011. It is set in an old house in a suburban neighborhood. A couple purchased the house from a builder who had fixed up the house for sale after it had stood abandoned for a few years. The wife was never the same after they moved in.


John is continuing to work on new novels and short stories, so stay tuned!

    has potential

    The sheer number of the word "cabin" on the first page almost had me closing the book. Then, the three pages of the main character lighting a lamp almost killed me. The story is wordy for such a short book- but it has potential! Yeah, I am not a writer, I'm a reader- and I want a main character I care about, a proliferation of words, and storyline other than tasks. I'd love to see what Mr. Gaffield could do with this if he really dug into the story and characters. If we really felt for the guy, maybe even the ghost, if we could appreciate the land or the character's need for a vacation.

    Very good read!

    I enjoyed this short story. It kept me in suspense the entire story. If you are looking for an interesting short story and you don't have a lot of time, this is for you.

    What?

    I know this was free and should not complain, but this was not scary. Ending was abrupt. Simply written. Read it to pass the time.
