I picked these books up at Victoria from Mr. Whittle himself. He signed each one. I enjoyed talking with him and felt compelled to buy a couple books. I bought them thinking my boys would like them since they are into history and ghosts, read them myself and was quite surprised! Very good reads!!

I'm a retired coal mining engineer who was born in Yorkshire, England and helped to raise my 8 younger siblings. I also had an older sister but I didn't help much with her!
