WARNING: NOT TO BE READ AFTER DARK ... The seventh book in the terrifying Wardstone Chronicles, featuring Tom Ward, the Spook's Apprentice.
Joseph Delaney is a retired English teacher. He has three children and nine grandchildren and is a wonderful public speaker available for conference, library and bookshop events. His home is in the middle of Boggart territory and his village has a boggart called the Hall Knocker, which was laid to rest under the step of a house near the church. Most of the places in the Spook's books are based on real places in Lancashire. And the inspiration behind the stories often comes from local ghost stories and legends.
"Delaney's mastery of suspense will grip even reluctant readers with his dramatic, beautifully paced prose." -- Amanda Craig * The Times * ". . . ideal for the reader who has outgrown Harry Potter.
