Base Fear: Deadly Secrets is the latest horror title written by military spouse Samantha Fisher – it tells the story of a family’s quarter that comes with a grisly history.

We asked Gemma Parkinson, who grew up in a military family and now works with army families through her job at a children’s centre, to review the title for Army&You…

Gemma Parkinson“What can I say, this is a book that I could really resonate with.

Growing up in the military and moving to different camps all over the country and overseas there were often houses that felt like they had a story within them, and this book brings that to life.

I could see myself as the main character – Paige Daniels – and could really empathise with her, especially in the opening chapters of moving to a new area and the struggles of having your dad away whilst moving.

In chapter four there’s a passage about calling someone out for a repair to the house, I’m sure you will laugh like I did, it really hits the nail on the head.

Base Fear: Deadly Secrets is well written and keeps you wanting to read on and find out what will come next. It is an easy read, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who likes mystery and horror. You will not be disappointed.

I look forward to reading more from the author.”

S.C Fisher was born in St. Asaph, raised in Prestatyn, and is currently stationed at RAF Valley, Anglesey. You can find out more about her new series of horror novels, published by Raven Tale Publishing, at
