Wraiths and Strays: Hauntings


The first book in the supernatural trillogy by authors Stephen Lomax & Shiree Taylor.

Best friends, Marcus and James, living in the quiet village of Boughton Chapel in Kent, unexpectedly find themselves redundant and out of work. Faced with a grim future of dole queues and dead-end jobs, they decide instead to set themselves up as paranormal investigators. Equipped with little more than enthusiasm and the variable support of their friends and families, they embark on their new career, and find that ghost hunting is every bit as much fun as they had hoped.

A chance meeting with a fellow investigator and cryptozoologist leads them onto an altogether darker path, that offers intriguing possibilities but opens up a new and frightening reality. His harrowing tale of personal loss and obsession forces the young men to consider where the line between hunter and hunted really lies. The supernatural world plays for keeps and it pays to be careful what you look for…

Wraiths and Strays: Sacred Land


Marcus and James, of Wraiths and Strays Paranormal Investigations, are still recovering from the trauma of the death of their fellow investigator Tim, when they meet Zygismund Wijoic, a young Polish film director who appears to have been following their paranormal investigations online with unusual interest. Accompanied by the mysterious and alluring Karla, Wijoic and his shadowy backers invite the WASP team to an ancient, landed estate in the Welsh borderlands to conduct a televised paranormal investigation.

Attracted by the promise of publicity and financial security, the group joins the documentary crew on-site where Dianna, the team’s psychic, finds herself inexplicably drawn to the ruined castle on the hill above the great house. Their investigation gradually reveals evidence of a dark history of ritual magic at the house and provokes a terrifying confrontation with a supernatural entity of unimaginable power. Will a careless act by the increasingly angry and resentful Magnus place the lives of everyone present in peril, despite their precautions? Everything has consequences, and nothing is what it seems.

Wraiths and Strays: Dwellers on the Threshold


Returning to Kent after filming a paranormal documentary at an ancient estate in Wales, the WASP team members try to resume their normal lives, but they soon become aware that something has changed. Dianna, the team’s psychic, suspects that they have brought back more than just a supernatural experience, and it is affecting them all in profoundly disturbing ways.

What is it that draws Dianna back to the castle ruins at Twr Sylff? What role does her lineage play in this strange affair? Searching for answers, she makes contact with the reclusive family from the estate. Dianna learns shocking details about what they are dealing with and why the team was invited to the great house in the first place.

With time running out and dark forces closing in, the WASP team returns to the estate to deal with the consequences of their earlier investigation and the ill-considered actions of the mysterious family who reside there, but it might already be too late. The team is persuaded to participate in a dark ritual and Dianna is drawn into the depths of another realm. Will the team members survive unscathed? Everything has a price, and someone is going to pay it.
