1) Tell us about your story in Grave Dangers
My idea is based around an abandoned asylum and features a character with steadily deteriorating mental health. She’s a college girl who’s returning home after a semester away. One day when she’s walking through the trees, she hears voices that urge her to go deeper into them and at first, she resists. Hearing voices is not new to her but then the voices get louder, and she hears the same voice everywhere she goes so she eventually gives in. Inside the asylum, she is sensitive to the ghosts, can feel their pain, and see what they went through. What she doesn’t know is that she isn’t the only one who was lured there. Has paranormal and suspense elements.
2) What are the main themes in your story?
The main themes in Voices would be coming of age, the power of friendship, loss, and starting over.
3) Tell us something unusual about your main character.
My character suffers from schizophrenia, and as a result, she can act as a good unreliable narrator since she isn’t sure of herself and the events that unfold in a story.
4) Who are your favorite authors in the mystery/thriller/horror genres?
There are so many good authors in these genres that I’m gonna round my response to the handful of names that come to mind: Stephen King (of course), Mary Kubica, Ruth Ware, and Carissa Ann Lynch.
5) Is your book a standalone or the start of a series?
My book is a standalone novella.
