A Lover of Books

Guest Post by Ruth Dugdall

Nowhere Girl Cover

Today is a very special day for Ruth Dugdall.  Her book, ‘Nowhere Girl’ is out.

Here is a guest post from Ruth with a competition at the end.


It is the one night in the year when spirits walk, when those that once lived on earth can once again move among the living. And stories seep through the air like mist, dark tales to make the skin shiver. Gather round, and listen…

My story is not of ghosts, but the frailty of humans. The evil, or madness, or badness, that thrives in the most ordinary hearts, in the most normal-looking family. Surely, the scariest story of all.

There is a girl. A Nowhere Girl, whose parents hail from foreign lands, who lives in a country where she is not native. She doesn’t belong, or fit.

And tonight, as ghouls walk the land, she is happy. At a fair; noisy, lively, hot. The smells of spun sugar and the grease of the rides. The best ride of all is a huge Ferris wheel, golden and spending.

Ellie decides to ride.

But she doesn’t get off. She is nowhere to be seen….

And today, her story is finally told. Nowhere Girl is now available.



‘Nowhere Girl’ is available to buy from Amazon:-
