Please welcome the lovely Frances Forster to the StudioBlog. We’re so happy to have her with us today, so here we go, nattering away over a cuppa. Please join us!

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?

Blurb for Hell Hound:

Legend has it the old farmhouse that sits on the hill in Mel Cove is haunted by a hound dog. A hellhound. The story goes, an old lady name Mary studied witchcraft and practiced it. One day, she found a spell to cast on her pet Spike.

The spell was said to make Spike roam the farm until the end of time, chasing away or killing anything and anybody who steps onto the property.

Trick or Treat: Coming Soon this Halloween 

"Some say the Legend here in Walnut Grove is just a story, others say it really happened. Thirty years ago, young Nicholas and his baby brother Alex decided to play a trick, and Nicholas disappeared. Alex takes Nicholas's disappearance to a whole new level and was sent away to Coleman Asylum. After 30 years, kids no longer pull pranks on Halloween. Now just out of the blue a mysterious teenager shows up and is pulling every trick he has out of his sleeve and kids are vanishing one by one. Is it the Legend of Nicholas, has he returned for revenge or is it just kids playing tricks on the small town of Walnut Grove?"

About Frances Forster:

My name is Frances Forster. I am a young adult. I love writing, gaming, drawing and going on walks. I have been into horror and writing ever since I was a child, so I decided to make a career out of something I love doing.

I am from North Carolina but I live in Central Illinois now. I graduated with my G.E.D back in 2014 and couldn't see myself doing anything really but writing. I have always loved to write no matter what it is. In school I always loved note taking and going to Language Arts to write about different things. In grade school, I won an award for best story written.
