Fall is in full swing here in the great Northwest and only two days are left to enter the Off the Beaten Path Giveaway!
Today’s guest is Sharon Sant, the author of The Sky Song trilogy, and one of the seven awesome indies who collaborated to Off The Beaten Path: Eight Tales of the Paranormal.
Everything you wanted to know about Sharon:
Sharon Sant was born in Dorset but now lives in Stoke-on-Trent. She graduated from Staffordshire University in 2009 with a degree in English and creative writing. She currently works part time as a freelance editor and continues to write her own stories. An avid reader with eclectic tastes across many genres, when not busy trying in vain to be a domestic goddess, she can often be found lurking in local coffee shops with her head in a book. Sometimes she pretends to be clever but really loves nothing more than watching geeky TV and eating Pringles. She is the author of a string of YA novels including Runners and the Sky Song trilogy.
Her answers to my questions:
1) The first horror book you read was…?
It by Stephen King
2) You discovered you were quite good at writing horror/paranormal/urban fantasy when…?
I’m still not sure that I am! But people seemed to like my first release, Sky Song, and so I’ll go with that.
3) As a reader, your favorite horror book is…?
Anything by Stephen King. I also like gothic spookiness, particularly 19th century stuff like Edgar Allan Poe.
4) What scares you…?
Small spaces – I’m terribly claustrophobic
5) You usually write…?
YA fantasy/paranormal/sci fi
6) What’s next…?
I have a new book just out, The Memory Game, which is a YA paranormal. Next job is to continue work on the second book of my YA dystopian series, Runners.
