The Case of the Deadly Doppelganger was released last week, and it’s all been very exciting. For someone who, three years ago, never thought she’d even get published once, it feels like a dream come true to now have two books out there.
When thinking of ghosts, we normally associate them with terror; be it slow, creeping dread, or Exorcist style nightmares. Humans love to be scared, so it’s unsurprising that the popular ghost stories tend to focus on the more frightening aspect of the supernatural.
As you know, I’m not just a writer, but an avid reader too. Obsessive, in fact. From an early age, I used to badger my older sister to read me the Biff and Kipper books, then trapse around with my mother to find book bargains at the local car-boot sales. They were just 20p back then, in case you were wondering… those were the days!
I’m all for having fun with writing. After all, that’s why we do it, isn’t it; so we can dive into worlds of our own making and have a right laugh in the process? (Except all you authors writing about mass-murders and bleak stuff; that’s maybe not quite as amusing.)
