They call me Mr Shiver.


Hi, welcome to my home on the internet. My name is Richard Schiver, and I write about the frightening and the fantastic. Growing up my love of the macabre was sparked when my cousins and I would listen to our grandmother spinning ghostly yarns by the light of the fill moon. Later we would sleep in the back yard trying to scare one another with our own dark tales within a stones throw of the real haunted house next door.

Reviewers said…

“…legends that come alive!”

There were a few chapters I had to put the book down and catch my breath. This is a page turner that’s was extremely hard to put down.


“A Fast, Entertaining Read”

NOT OF US is a fast, entertaining read. I think I finished it in two or three sessions on the elliptical.


“brutal with a purpose”

It’s post-apocalyptic and set in the zombie genre without being clichéd. And that ending. That ending is spectacular.
