Chetwynd-Hayes wrote more than 200 short stories and a dozen novels.

On the outbreak of the Second World War, he followed his father, a Quartermaster Sergeant, into the Army.

Serving with the Middlesex Regiment, he was evacuated from Dunkirk, but returned to France on D-Day and fought in the Normandy Campaign.

“Every day there is something that happens where both John and I look at each and just know that it’s going to be a comic eventually,” she told The Huffington Post.

“We are always having a good time so it’s very easy to find inspiration from every little thing.”Nervous about people’s reaction to her work, Catana wasn’t originally planning to post the comics online.

Weeks later, on one fateful night, Catana spotted John at a bar and with her friends’ help, finally introduced herself.

“John is constantly amazing me with his generosity in the way he treats me and everyone else he meets,” Catana said.

Ronald Henry Glynn Chetwynd-Hayes was born at Isleworth, west London, on May 30 1919, and educated locally.

He grew up a film fan, and appeared as an extra in several pictures, including A Yank at Oxford (1937), which starred Vivien Leigh and Maureen O'Sullivan, and Goodbye Mr Chips (1939).

RONALD CHETWYND-HAYES, who has died aged 81, was a writer of old-fashioned ghost stories and tongue-in-cheek tales of terror with titles such as Looking for Someone to Suck and My Mother Married a Vampire; he was described by one of his publishers as "Britain's Prince of Chill".

Drawing his inspiration from Victorian story tellers, Chetwynd-Hayes's work transported readers back to a more genteel era of supernatural literature, and his cast of characters ranged from ghosts, vampires and werewolves to less familiar monsters such as mocks, shadmocks and humgoos.

In 1976, he ghost-edited and wrote almost all of Ghoul, a one-off magazine from New English Library billed as a "ghastly giggle".
