A short story written after a series of near death encounter during the Christmas 2013 period. My editor asked me to change my name in the story, as she thought it was to close to the truth, and could worry my friends. So, I became Paul Smart. The encounters included one when I stopped breathing in my sleep.

About the Author
I have wanted to be a writer since I learned to read. My reading ability was always at the top of the class and this developed into the talent for storytelling.
In 2011 an injury to my left leg left me disabled and I finally got the opportunity to try to write. The first stories I had published were in a US available only anthology.
The Ghost of St. Mary's and The Rocking Lantern were not only the first published, but the first I wrote. Later that year, I had Old Church Ghosts published on line in the UK. The original version is only availlable in the Special Edition version.
I made my on line reputation for ghost stories, but I also write for the children's charity books by The Peacock Writers.
In 2012, my book Chronicles of Mark Johnson won an award for excellence from the US on line magazine indiePENdents.org. Both this book, and its sequel Wharfemere Finale had rave reviews from New York reviewer, Fran Lewis.
In recent times, my US hit series Forgestriker has sold over 350 e-books in the seven books series, and earned me a reputation for writing sci-fi in the USA.
