About the Author

A voracious reader in her youth, Richardson would write her own stories when there wasn’t a novel handy. She wrote her first book while studying Cybernetics at university, and it was published a year later. Aside from her Barrington Stoke titles, Devil for Sale and Grave Dirt, she has also written the hugely successful The Devil’s Footsteps (published by Random House) which was shortlisted for the Doncaster Children’s Book Award. She now lives in Basildon, Essex.

Spirit Animals

Author: E. E. Richardson Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 14/07/2016

On a chilly morning in February, DCI Claire Pierce is called off her latest investigation-an animal sacrifice case-to a graveyard in Nottinghamshire, where a murder scene looks set to re-open an old case. Three times before, Yorkshire's Ritual Crime Unit tried and failed to catch the Valentine Vampire, a ritualistic serial killer whose victims show up drained of blood. Fourteen years after the last deaths, it seemed the case would never be solved. Now there's another body, and if the killer's pattern holds up, there are at least two still to come. Last time, Pierce's superiors had insisted she hunt for a monster she knows doesn't exist, that can fly and turn to mist; the media had a field day, and the Vampire became the subject of a best-selling book. This time she's determined to find and stop the all-too-human culprit before it's too late.

The Devil's Footsteps

Author: E E Richardson Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 25/02/2016

It was just a bit of fun, a local legend. The Devil's Footsteps: thirteen stepping stones, and whichever one you stopped on in the rhyme could predict how you would die. A harmless game for kids - and nobody ever died from a game. But it's not a game to Bryan. He's seen the Dark Man, because the Dark Man took his brother five years ago. He's tried to tell himself that it was his imagination, that the Devil's Footsteps are just stones and the Dark Man didn't take Adam. But Adam's still gone. And then Bryan meets two other boys who have their own unsolved mysteries. Someone or something is after the children in the town. And it all comes back to the rhyme that every local child knows by heart: Thirteen steps to the Dark Man's door, Won't be turning back no more . . .

When Nick Spencer stumbles upon Bargains, the odd little back street shop seems like the perfect place to buy the present he's been searching for.

But Nick soon realizes that the deal he's made is not quite the bargain he thought it was. His drawing skills have disappeared, and when he returns to the shop he finds himself trapped into a job he didn't sign up for, collecting debts for the mysterious Mr Grey. As his assignments grow steadily more and more traumatic and the shop takes over more and more of his life, the question becomes not when he'll earn his way out . . . but if he'll ever get out at all.

Author: E E Richardson Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 05/04/2007

Joel Demetrius is quite looking forward to moving in with his new step-family, but as far as his sister Cassie's concerned, they're nothing but intruders. She doesn't want anything to do with Gerald and his two sons, and to make matters worse their new home is a derelict old house, neglected for decades. Joel thinks it's interesting. Cassie thinks it's a dump. But his sister isn't the only reason the house doesn't feel like a home. As fascinated as he is by the place, Joel has to admit there's something not quite right about it. Not only does he keep seeing things out of the corner of his eye, but his sleep is plagued by nightmares. He can't seem to stop dreaming about a terrified boy who keeps repeating the same fractured prayer: IF I SHOULD DIE BEFORE I WAKE, I PRAY THE LORD MY SOUL TO TAKE ...As events in the house become harder and harder to explain, it seems that the line between nightmare and reality is getting steadily more blurred. And when the battle between Cassie and her step-brothers draws everyone deeper into the mystery, all four kids are forced to confront the question of just who the intruders really are.
