The house has awoken…
Jonathan Northrop is a successful author – for the moment. His next deadline is coming due and the original brilliance that led him through his debut novel seems to have worn off. In other words, writer’s block.
Newly but amicably estranged with his wife, Northrop decides to move out to a country house he had purchased on his first windfall while looking to live the storybook author’s life – seclusion, country air, and inspired writing.
Desperate to deliver a manuscript, Jonathan retreats to Whispering Corner in hopes of finding new inspiration for his horror novel.
But soon he’s about to get far more than he bargained for…
Strange whisperings and invisible presences begin to appear in the house.
Jonathan gets wind of local legends about the house and land, telling gruesome tales of ethereal and supernatural occurrences.
However, when life begins to imitate art in the most literal sense, Jonathan realises just what he kind of world he has walked into.
He fears he may have awakened some ancient psychic presence.
Amidst increasing supernatural activity, real life and fiction begin to intertwine to lead to a horrifying climax.
Whispering Corner is a gripping supernatural horror thriller with tones of the mystic and mysterious. It was previously published under the pseudonym Mark Ronson.
