I got the idea for the novel I’m working on in October, when I started to re-read some of the Middle Grade Ghost stories that used to scare me. It had been years since I’d read some of them, but soon I was plowing through a bunch of books by authors I had liked, such as Mary Downing Hahn and Betty Ren Wright. Those books inspired me to try my hand at a Middle Grade Ghost Story — after years of writing YA and adult Fantasy I’ve decided to return to the kind of books that I still love to indulge in.
