How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
In the paranormal genre you can write about scenarios that would not be feasible normally. Mythological creatures, from either someone else’s or your own creation, are only limited by your, and your reader’s, imagination.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
It’s tempting to give up when you have a bad review, or negative feedback, but at the end of it all you’re not writing the novel for those that don’t like it; you’re writing it for the readers that do. Take on board constructive criticism, and improve if you can, but don’t let it stop you from writing the novel you would want to read.
Catherine Gardiner was born and raised next to rolling green meadows in Yorkshire, England where she resides with her beloved border collie. When she is not writing she is either researching for her upcoming novels, taking photographs, cooking or going for long leisurely walks along a nearby river. She first conceived the idea for her novels when she was doing a creative writing course in college and had to walk home alone through a wood where she often imagined what might be in the shadows. She also thinks her love of writing and her passion for all things creative is due to her Irish roots.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
The first novels that gave me a passion for reading were from the Point Horror, Fear Street, and Nightworld series in the 90s. When I initially thought of my story, I knew that it had more in common with the books I used to read than the books I find myself reading now and so I ended up setting my novel partially in that time period, as a homage.
