About Chris

Hi. My name is Chris. Welcome to my niche on the Web.

As you may have noticed, I’m a writer. A writer of psychological and paranormal horror, to be exact. My résumé of another life mentions two university degrees and years of experience as a business consultant, but eventually the cries of the monsters under my bed grew too loud to ignore.

Where I come from

Growing up, I had nightmares that no one else saw or acknowledged. I was taught, like so many children, to stay away from the darkness within, because “there be dragons”. Except I was already in over my head.

So not only did I learn to fear and despise the darkness, I also learned to fear and despise myself. To this day, the scars this left on me are still visible.

After years of writing my way through the dark, I finally learned to embrace it instead and make friends with the dragons.

So I left corporate life behind to devote my time to my love for horror, history, psychology, occultism, and storytelling.

What you can expect

On this blog, I write about:

  • ghosts, ghouls, and things that go bump inside our mind. Some of them first-hand experiences;
  • ancient places, forgotten history, and the incongruous twists in humanity’s memory;
  • psychology by observation, laying bear the mechanics of human behaviour;
  • and on occasion I disgress and disect the cogwheels of storytelling.

And of course I will post updates about my stories and new publications.

Where to start

Blogs are mazes, especially when you are new to them. Here are a few links to help you find your way:

  • Hunting for ghosts and other creeps? Start here, in your own house.
  • Interested in matters of the mind? Here are the blog posts on every-day psychology and human behaviour.
  • For a brief pang of emotion, try the Soulless Cries: an ongoing collection of painful poems in freeform.

And finally there is The Kalbrandt Café, the free members-only area where I post the stories and previews that aren’t made public.

Stay in touch

You can find me on Facebook and Twitter, or you can send me a message here. I always love hearing from you!
