FREE Short Story


When Susie discovers a secret grave in a deserted corner of a gothic London cemetery, she’s sure this find will help turn her troubled life around. Susie sets out to solve the strange mystery of the man who lies there, ‘Clappy the clown’. Who was Clappy? And why was he buried so secretly, 100 years ago?

Her quest leads her to the quirky East End clown museum; helped by its eccentric curator, Sparky, she begins to find unsettling answers – and a new vocation in life. But as Susie gets to know Clappy better, we begin to realise that neither Clappy, nor Susie, are quite as they seem....

The Clown Corner is both a quirky ghost story and a psychological study of dark obsession. Cat Thomas brings a light touch to a deeply twisted tale.
