“I love reading paranormal fiction because it involves a mix of possibility and probability, unlike other genres. I like to think of these kinds of stories as eating different kinds of candy. There’s the peppermint parts, the spooky, spicy concepts of ghosts lingering to help or seek revenge. The butterscotch bits, where the characters comfort and support each other through the challenges they face. The chocolate kisses of the underlying natural romance between different couples as a counterpoint to the supernatural elements. The tangy licorice bites of the magical and mystical elements. So it’s like grabbing a handful of candy from an immense jar of mixed goodies and savoring them when I read a ghost story or one involving witches, or best of all both.”
