One of the greatest Victorian-era ghost story writers is Charlotte Riddell. She was born in Ireland in 1832. Her stories are extraordinarily spooky and she’s a prolific writer of tales of the supernatural, especially about haunted houses.
She also wrote under the masculine pen names of F.G. Trafford and R.V.M. Sparling. She published such classic short stories like “The Open Door” and “Nut Bush Farm”. You can find her books of stories online through Goodreads and through sites like Amazon for purchase.
