I have published a book which tells the story of an Aberdonian military nurse who returns from Afghanistan and encounters The Grey Lady Ghost of the Cambridge Military Hospital. The novel reveals her origins and takes him to a pre-war Duthie Park, modern day Cruden Bay and back to the past to the Battle of Loos in World War One where he witnesses the Gordon Highlanders in action. This is the first in the series of Grey and Scarlet Novels by me, CG Buswell, and each book will feature a well known Aberdeen ghost and Aberdeenshire area as well as modern Scottish Infantry in action. Read the first chapter for free.

Radio Performances

On the 10 February 2006 Lesley Hart starred in the BBC Radio 4 Afternoon Play Almost Blue. The play was Judith Adams' dramatisation of the thriller by master of Italian noir, Carlo Lucarelli. The plot involved a man called Simon who is blind with synaesthesia, a condition which enables him to hear sounds in colour. A loner and a radio-hack, Simon spends his nights alone in his room surfing the air-waves of Bologna - picking up mobile phone conversations, chat rooms and police walkie-talkies. He listens into other people's business, tracing the shape of the city through his headphones. He begins to follow the journeys of two voices - one blue, one green. The first compels him, the second terrifies him, and both voices become instrumental in propelling Simon out of the safe interior of his bedroom into the world outside. Simon is played by Grant O'Rourke and Lesley played Grace, a police detective.
