After an assault at work, Tom Willis is left with Post Traumatic Stress-Disorder: noises and closed doors arouse debilitating bouts of irrational dread as to what might lie behind them. He is at risk of losing his job and his girlfriend, but when those closest to him start to share his terror of something lurking behind closed doors, he realises it is not only his sanity at risk, but his life and the lives of those around him. To unlock the secret of his fear Tom must revisit a childhood he has done his best to distance himself from. A time when he was an orphan living in a children’s home. In his hometown, with his childhood best friend, and in the basement of their ruined home, he will face a battered and scarred door. To challenge the room that is haunting him, he must confront the past, and ignore the persistent warning in his mind—“Don’t open the door…”

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I was inspired to write this book through most haunted house stories–by their nature–being rooted in one location, and in this I wanted the haunted house to be able to lurk behind any door, called into being by the fear of what could be beyond it.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
I work in mental health and studied as a therapist, and have met so many 'haunted' people. My main character, Tom, is one such person. Suffering with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, having the regrets for actions taken or not taken that we can all have, he is very much stuck struggling with these. And as such, his life mirrors that of a particular house with its own secrets.
