Collection of short horror?

I have started a collection of stories that were told to me as child, but retelling them. My plan is to not tell the ghost story part, but to tell the story that leads up to the ghost story? I’m not sure if that makes sense. For example, one of the stories is about the Lady of White Rock. The ghost story is your typical hitchhiker ghost story. But what I want to do is tell the events that led up the death of the woman as well as telling the first “haunting”.

My question is: do ya’ll think it would work? Or is there already a collection like that and it fell flat?

It could work. People love short horror stories. Just remember to post consistently.
