Drew Forest is a UK Horror/Thriller/Paranormal author who enjoys exploring the strange and curious aspects of human nature and the haunting worlds his characters are drawn to.
From a young age, he was always fascinated with the idea of the ‘monster under the bed’ or the ‘thing lurking in the shadows’. These facets of fear inspired him to find ways to investigate ‘that which makes our skin crawl’. This allowed him to give life to short tales of ghosts and monsters brought to life via his grandmother’s old typewriter.
Working as a self published writer comes with as many pitfalls as it does tribulations. The work-load is a little more demanding and as a result, the hours become a little bit longer. However, the successes – as big and as small as they may come, provide a more than amazing result. Unfortunately, it does mean…

Praise for ‘The Corpse Rooms’
“I loved this book! So many twists and turns and genuinely scary moments. Kept me interested from start to finish. I can’t wait to read Drew’s other books; in fact I’ve downloaded them already and want to buy the paperback versions now they’re available! Wonderful stuff.”
– Paul Chandler (Author of ‘The Vampire Cows of Scunthorpe’ & ‘Caveman Logic’)
“When this book was recommended to me, I wasn’t too sure what to expect from a debut horror novel. I’m pleased to say that I really enjoyed it.
Writing horror isn’t as easy as some people may think. It’s very difficult to create an atmosphere of suspense and to sustain it through the story, so I was greatly impressed at how the author managed to achieve this goal, whenever you think you’ve figured out what’s going on, something even more strange happens. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good scare!”
– Dan Sihota (Author of ‘Nightmares’)
“Read in one sitting could NOT put it down! a great debut novel cant wait for more to follow in the future-go buy this book!!!”
– Lee Petersen
“Finding a book that will actually scare you and make you shiver isn’t easy, but I’m very happy to say that is exactly what this book did to me. The story is entertaining throughout, you won’t find any boring bits, and you won’t be disappointed by the end which is so well described you will picture everything in your head as if you were watching the movie version of it.”

“The Corpse Rooms follows the tale of struggling alcoholic, Theo, who takes a maintenance job at the mysterious Rose Maiden Manor. When his friend and sponsor disappears, it is a race against time to unravel the mystery of the manor in order to save her. Drew Forest’s debut novel is superbly written, building layer upon layer tension to reach a fitting climax. The story, and many of the scenes, are remnant of the Silent Hill video game series, mixing suspense, mystery, thrills and the out right gruesome. There are many self-published novels available on Amazon – The Corpse Rooms is certainly one of best and rivals any thing released by a mainstream publishing house. Drew Forest is certainly a writer to keep your eye on. I am certainly looking forward to his next novel.”
– Duncan Thompson (Author of ‘Within the Dark Places’)
Praise for ‘Reading the Palms of Dolls’
“The first part of the book was so unlike anything I had ever read before that I instantly couldn’t wait to find out more about the peculiar main character in the story, Jesse. Various different adventures take place during the book in which the reader gets to know many other peculiar characters that make ‘Reading the Palms of Dolls’ a constant surprise. If you are not sure what book to read next and you are looking for a great story with lots of twists and originality, you will definitely love this one.”
