Thinking I was free was a mistake...


I have spent the last six years running, hiding, and thinking I would never be found.


Scarlet was the creation of pure evil, where everyone was numbered, tattooed, and categorized like animals for slaughter and assigned a place within the programme.


From infants, we were trained, manipulated, and controlled into becoming highly trained assassins to protect the bad guys without knowing the truth.


In a world where relationships and friendships are tested, in a world where love blossoms and demands sacrifice, where pain is mental as well as physical and blood and destruction follows, I'm the reason for the hunt.


In a world where the stars are the light that guides me within a life that starts to feel like a game of chess…


Where we have to risk it all to end the one thing that created us.


We had to ask our questions….


Who will end up on top?


Are we willing to pay the price to be free forever?


Then again, it wasn’t their choice to make…


It was mine.

Ghost Of  You

Why do I feel like I’m living a lie?


Fate, destiny, providence. God’s will or written in the stars, whatever you want to call it, can seem like a blessing, like the world is granting your wishes.

Not only do I get a second chance in love, in reconnecting with an old flame, I get a future that I’ve forever dreamed of.

Our love is pure, it’s raw and it’s beautiful.

She is the best thing to have ever walked into my life and I don’t know what my life would be like without her.

Then again, I never want to know.


Will be narrated by Ethan Gray and Hel 2025

Facebook: Kayleigh Hilton - Author

My name is Kayleigh Hilton, and I am a self-published author from Preston, United Kingdom. When I am not busy creating the world of Scarlet or any future books that are brewing. You can find me working for the NHS and spending time with my family, friends and my parents three West-highland Terriers: Amelia, Lia, and Milo. 


I am a strong supporter when it comes to Mental Health and Domestic Abuse, no matter if it's mental or physical, as I am a survivor myself. From early 2018- early 2022, I found myself in a relationship that I thought I deserved and kept telling myself everything he did was my fault. No matter what people kept telling me, I kept telling them it's not what it looks like, when it really was. In 2022, I finally realised I deserved better and didn't deserve to be a victim any longer and left that relationship. From there, I fell into a dark place mentally and later found the light with the help of my family, my friends and by writing Scarlet.

Within my writing journey, I plan to bring these topics up in my own creations, so people know they are not alone. A lot of the things I have felt within my own journey are expressed within the Scarlet world and the message I want to create is that there is always beauty hiding within the darkness. Without the pain and torment I went through, I don't think Scarlet would exist. Scarlet is my lifeline, my baby, my truth, conjured up to create an imaginative world that I want to share with you, the readers. It's a place where I want my voice to be heard and a place where anyone who has ever felt that way to know they aren't alone in this world and it's ok to not be ok.

With this platform, I do plan to try and help raise more awareness and hopefully a community where we can all be stronger together. 

Please feel free to join me on my journey by following my socials and lets create a community where we can help each other. 

“I know a book has got me good when a gunshot has me on the verge of tears because I’m terrified for my favourite character's lives! It was so action-packed and fast-paced, I was constantly on edge! The last few plot twists of the book had my mouth open and the ending made me a broken shell of a woman! I can’t wait for ‘Something Blue’ !!"
