“My Body”is a take on a popular urban myth, featuring my supernatural sleuth, Felix Renn.
What urban myth it is? Well, I can’t tell you as it would probably ruin the story.While it may seem like an open and shut case for Felix, things have a tendency of turning out differently in a world where the supernatural is the norm.
“…moving for the way in which it is told and the emotional acuity of the protagonist, the sadness and inevitability of all that takes place.”
“Ian Rogers brings us My Body. This is a well-thought-out tale with some great twists. A private detective meets a little girl who takes him into a haunted house. It is now his job to try to figure out who is doing the haunting.”

“Among the good stories I will mention Barbara Roden’s “404″, a Kafkaesque tale of office horror where employees mysteriously disappear one at the time, and Ian Rogers’ “My Body”, a modern ghost story with an undercurrent of sadness.”
“In “My Body” by Ian Rogers… I found the mystery of the story intriguing, and was in the dark about the reveal until nearly the end.”
