LOCAL author Sam Llewellyn is one of 11 renowned children’s writers who have contributed to Haunted, a spooky collection of ghost stories.

“It’s a collection of cracking stories of an extremely alarming nature,” says Sam. “A rattling good read.”

Sam’s story has a distinctly local flavour, set in Kington and featuring one of the greatest of local legends, Black Vaughan, whom he’s updated and reinvented as Vaughan Darkness.
