A boy imprisoned by an abusive recluse mother alone in a mansion in the 1920’s begins to get ideas of his own when a goblin in his closet comforts him in the dark.
Simon, an eight year old boy, spends each day alone in the silent corridors of an old three story mansion. He lives there with only, Mother, who is an erratic and paranoid recluse. She starves him and frequently locks him in closets or the basement cellar out of fears that he may eventually grow stronger and harm her. He has never been outside and no one has ever come over to the foreboding house and he spends his days in the dusty abandoned rooms talking to Timmy, his very old marionette doll. With Mother’s abuse, he is ragged and pale just as she is and takes on a frightening form. As Simon wanders the upper floors of the house alone, he is increasingly unnerved by someone moving his things. Sounds on the floors above in the night begin to fill him with dread and he finds it difficult to be in his room. To his horror, each night at the stroke of nine o’clock upon the grandfather clock, Mother begins to shut off electrical power to the upper floors to put him into his bed. In that darkness that crawls through the suffocating corridors when the clock tolls the two o’clock hour, something begins to open his closet door from within. Over time, the mood of the house changes, the boy changes, and terrible things will happen to everyone who resides within the walls of the old beast. Trapped in an ever deepening hole of madness, terror, and trickery, the innocent boy and ultimately a detestable man, one day discovers that the thing that has been watching him has had plans for him all along.
The Goblin is a terrifying tale of madness, terror, and trickery that will leave you pleasantly stunned. For all lovers of intense suspense, period thrillers of the 1920’s and 30’s, stories that make you afraid of the dark, and poetic books from classic authors of Victorian Horror.

Wyatt Michael is a musician, singer, songwriter, suspense/thriller novelist, artist, actor, and screenwriter. He owns Michael & Company Pictures, a film production company that he writes for.
Throughout his teens and early twenties, his Alternative Rock music was showcased on many radio stations from Ohio to California (before internet radio was an idea). Later, he and his co-writer built a recording studio and taught themselves how to use it. Over the next six years, his band, Only Makebelieve, recorded and finally released Message from a Mockingbird, an Alternative Pop masterpiece album that received rave reviews from critics all over the world. The group set out on a tour and promoted the album, which also ran on national college radio. Through stressful job situations – working nights in dark factories for years on end and driving semis across ice-covered mountains, Wyatt created a mental way of escape – writing stories. He began to write film scripts and his friends found them to be worthy of the screen. After getting a feel for the new creative form, Wyatt took on the daunting endeavor: The Whaler Fortune – his first novel. Being pleased with its worth, and after a break in which he performed in several major stage plays, he followed with, Revenge of the Wolf – his second novel which garnered many accolades for its literary quality. Wyatt currently writes novels and screenplays which are in the processes of being released. Wyatt wrote and directed his first feature film, THE GOBLIN.
