Oddly enough, I've got nothing. Never met a ghost. Never had a run in with anything less than of this world. So why then do I love to write in the genre?
Maybe because I don't have a connection with that world. It's an outlet for my creativity and an opportunity to visit with ghosts and creatures I've always dreamed of but never met. Sometimes I try to put myself in that world and wonder how I would react if I met some of the characters in my books.
Unfortunately, I firmly believe I would probably not be as brave as the heroines in those books. But they're still great fun to write.
And I can always believe...
