"Revenant," a romantic ghost story from Nancy MacLean
Q: Can you tell us a bit about the inspiration for your Grey Area story?
Nancy: Although I never returned to Cape Breton to live, my heart often goes there and the island has provided a setting for a few of my short stories and two of my novels. The craggy coastline, combined with inclement weather, creates the perfect background for conjuring ghosts.
My contribution to Grey Area, entitled “Revenant”, contains another ingredient that is consistently found in my writing: romance. My protagonist finds herself driving to a remote corner of Cape Breton in a storm, searching for the man who has haunted her dreams. I hope you enjoy it.
