Studioenp: Silence or noise when writing?
Frances: It depends really. I can listen to Marilyn Manson to get more dark thoughts to put into my writing or I can go without any sound.
Studioenp: Oooh at dark thoughts. What’s your latest release?
Frances: Hell Hound. It can be found on my website and read for free through my newsletter.
Studioenp: Fabulous freebie! That’s very kind of you—thank you. How did the plot come about for it?
Frances: I really could not say. Ideas just pour out when I am in the writing mood.
Studioenp: That’s great to hear. How long did it take you to write it?
Frances: Since it is a short horror story, it only took a few weeks to write, edit, and finalize it.
Studioenp: Quick, then. Good for you! What’s next on your writing list?
Frances: I am working on a new horror story which is longer than Hell Hound. It is called Trick or Treat. It will be released this Halloween.
Studioenp: Spooky! How many hours per week do you write?
Frances: I try to write at least five to ten hours a week.
Studioenp: What’s one genre you’ve always wanted to write but haven’t—and will you ever write it?
Frances: I really haven’t thought of writing a different genre—not that I don’t like or read other genres but I can’t see myself writing anything other than horror. I might write mystery or thriller.
Studioenp: Mysteries and thrillers sound good. What’s the best book you’ve written?
Frances: So far, Hell Hound, but hopefully I will write more good books.
Studioenp: We wish you well in your writing career, and long may you write horror. Thanks for being with us today, and we hope to see you again soon.
Dear readers, in the usual spot on the table is a selection of sandwiches. We’ve gone proper British by cutting off the crusts, and of course, there’s cucumber in them, plus some with cheese and Branston pickle. So scoff away, why don’t you?
