Agnes doesn’t want to return home. There are too many memories and the ghosts of those memories have been waiting to snag her back. But, home is where recently widowed Agnes Michaels must return to care for her ailing mother who is also being haunted. This is the world of Kathryn Meyer Griffith’s novella “Don’t Look Back, Agnes.”
Agnes’s childhood home is surrounded by woods that hold a frightening secret. Those woods call to her like a siren and want her to return to them and the scene of the horror she faced as a teenage girl. When she returns home, her ailing mother is haunted by the ghosts of long ago, wanting Agnes to go back to the woods. The events like those of long ago are reoccurring and new and old friends—and strangers who hold to the shadows—want Agnes to try to remember what she has forced from her mind. All she wants to do is escape from it. What can Agnes do?
Griffith has written a fun and cozy spooky paranormal romance novella that will keep you wanting to turn the pages. Her characters are rich and weave a haunting ghost story of fear, love, and survival. She deftly weaves the story of a woman who wants nothing more than to forget her past and run away from it forever, but Agnes is trapped. Agnes' mind cringes from the pain of the past—and whose wouldn’t when she was the only one to survive the experience.
More information about Kathryn Meyer Griffith:
Since childhood I’ve always been an artist and worked as a graphic designer in the corporate world and for newspapers for twenty-three years before I quit to write full time. I began writing novels at 21 and have had fourteen (nine romantic horror, one historical romance, one romantic suspense, one romantic time travel and two murder mysteries) previous novels and eight short stories published from Zebra Books, Leisure Books, Avalon Books, The Wild Rose Press, Damnation Books and Eternal Press.
I’ve been married to Russell for thirty-three years; have a son, James, and two grandchildren, Joshua and Caitlyn, and I live in a small quaint town in Illinois called Columbia, which is right across the JB Bridge from St. Louis, Mo. We have two quirky cats, ghost cat Sasha and live cat Cleo, and the four of us live happily in an old house in the heart of town. Though I’ve been an artist, and a folk singer in my youth with my brother Jim, writing has always been my greatest passion, my butterfly stage, and I’ll probably write stories until the day I die.
