Description

In his first short story collection, Douglas R. Brown draws inspiration from his career as a firefighter/paramedic along with a Charles Dickens classic in six thrilling tales exploring some of humanity’s darkest impulses.

A burned-out paramedic with PTSD receives a succession of ghostly visitors trying to help him face his demons before it’s too late. A solitary night janitor battles a sinister man in black. A firefighter fails to heed an otherworldly warning. A happily married man spirals into obsession over a comment by an internet troll. A man runs for his life down a dark country lane pursued by a stranger with murder in mind. A paramedic’s haunting secret threatens to destroy her life.

Written from the soul of a firefighter/paramedic who has seen his own struggles, A Firefighter Christmas Carol and Other Stories is an emotional rollercoaster from beginning to end and is not for the faint of heart.
