Lucas Mackenzie and the London Midnight Ghost Show

Author: Steve Bryant

Pages: 300 
Publisher: Month9Books 
Formats: Paperback, eBook
Purchase: Amazon | Barnes & Noble


Lucas Mackenzie has got the best job of any 10 year old boy. He travels from city-to-city as part of the London Midnight Ghost Show, scaring unsuspecting show-goers year round. Performing comes naturally to Lucas and the rest of the troupe, who’ve been doing it for as long as Lucas can remember. 

But there’s something Lucas doesn’t know. 

Like the rest of Luca’s friends, he’s dead. And for some reason, Lucas can’t remember his former life, his parents or friends. Did he go to school? Have a dog? Brothers and sisters? 

If only he could recall his former life, maybe even reach out to his parents, haunt them.

When a ghost hunter determines to shut the show down, Lucas realizes the life he has might soon be over. And without a connection to his family, he will have nothing. There’s little time and Lucas has much to do. Can he win the love of Columbine, the show's enchanting fifteen-year-old mystic? Can he outwit the forces of life and death that thwart his efforts to find his family? 

Keep the lights on! Lucas Mackenzie’s coming to town.


Where his inspiration comes from for writing.
I’ve written ever since childhood. My friends and I, in the days before television came to our neighborhood, were great imitators. If we saw a circus one weekend, we would attempt to put on our own circus the following weekend. Writing is the obvious way to imitate reading, to create our own “show.” Eventually I studied creative writing at the University of Illinois, where I also unofficially minored in English. Getting exposed to the likes of Fitzgerald, Faulkner, and Hemingway in short story classes was eye opening.
Once a project begins, it’s easy to keep going. I don’t really have writer’s block because I plot/outline pretty thoroughly. I know what is coming next, and it becomes a pleasure to finally get to certain scenes and flesh them out. When I am stuck for ideas, I prefer to make a list of options rather than try to come up with just one. In the plotting phase, when the timeline gets tricky, I use lots of note cards and rearrange them as necessary to make things work.


Steve Bryant is a new novelist, but a veteran author of books of card tricks. He founded a 40+ page monthly internet magazine for magicians containing news, reviews, magic tricks, humor, and fiction; and he frequently contributes biographical cover articles to the country’s two leading magic journals (his most recent article was about the séance at Hollywood’s Magic Castle).
