Award-winning Fort William author, Barry Hutchison, will be visiting the town’s Highland Bookshop on Saturday (September 23) to sign copies of his latest novel, Spectre Collectors: Too Ghoul for School, and talk about the inspiration behind the story.

The first in a spook-tacular new series about a secret society of ghost hunters, Too Ghoul for School tells the story of 12-year-old Denzel, who is recruited into the organisation after a poltergeist attacks him during his maths homework.

‘It’s possibly my favourite book I’ve ever written,’ said Barry. ‘And it’s fantastic to finally be able to launch a new book in a real independent bookshop here in my home town.’

While signing, Barry will also be answering questions about his books and giving advice to any would-be authors looking to follow in his footsteps.

As well as being the author of more than 80 books, Barry recently completed writing duties on SuperMansion, an animated US TV show starring Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston, and Wonder Woman and Star Trek star, Chris Pine.

Barry will be appearing at The Highland Bookshop from 1-2pm on Saturday September 23, with signed copies available in store afterwards.
