The Whitby Ghost | Paranormal Erotica | September 21st, 2011.

Roy has a past he'd rather forget. To overcome it he takes his girlfriend Melisa to Whitby, the very place of his past that he is trying to forget. Roy believes it's the only way to move on and to forget it by moving on with his future, Melisa.

But something is lurking in Whitby, something that Melisa becomes sensitive to the minute they arrive. What she discovers is hard to swallow. What follows is a journey to the other side. Something she'd rather forget.

Will Melisa marry her boyfriend who refuses to talk about his past? Or will his past bring them closer?

What main genre do you write in?


Please tell us your latest news!

I've just released my New Book The Whitby Ghost on Amazon which is really exciting. I've a blog tour coming up this October. Not sure of the dates yet but everything will be updated on my blog.

Who is your favorite author and what is it that really strikes you about their work?

My favourite author is Stephen King. I love his story telling, I love the paranormal aspect. One of my favourites is The Green Mile. I also loved that and Insomnia that took me ages to finish because of it's size.

Do you recall how your interest in writing originated?

Yeah, I was seventeen. I was really frustrated at the time and the only way I could deal with my frustration was to write it down. At that moment I knew that this is what I wanted to do. It gives me a feeling of release.

Do you have any advice for other writers?

Keep writing no matter what other people say. Someone will take notice. I learnt that when I had a play accepted and published. Never give up.

Do you have a favorite object that is pertinent to your writing?

I have a blue blanket that I wrap around my legs to keep me warm. Even when it isn't that cold it's become habit.

Please describe your writing environment.

We live in a two bedroom house with my little girl so my writing space is pretty much in my bedroom. I don't do much sleeping anyway as I'm always tapping away on my computer. There are loads of little papers around my desk with notes or ideas I get at the spur of the moment so it's pretty messy at the moment.

What's been the most challenging part of writing for you?

Writing and working and raising my daughter all at the same time. There never seems to be enough hours in the day for me. Sometimes it takes me a while to get started. For some reason I always have something else to do, like mow the lawn or clean the dishes. It takes discipline to sit myself down and write. But once I start it's hard to stop me.

Do you like to mix genres?

I do love to mix genres, this way I get to cater for different readers.

What book are you reading now? What are your thoughts on it?

I'm reading Island of secrets and Witchfinder, Dawn of the demontide. I tend to read two books at a time.

What inspires your writing?

The life around me, people, stories I've heard or read. Everything around me is an inspiration.
