With Sarah Ward
Are crime novels and ghost stories mutually exclusive? The boundary between crime and supernatural fiction is increasingly blurring and excellent thrillers with supernatural elements are being published. What are the conventions of each genre and how can they be integrated? This practical workshop will be led by crime writer Sarah Ward whose Gothic thriller The Quickening, written under the name of Rhiannon Ward, will be published next year. It will look at examples of successful supernatural crime stories and how to satisfy readers who love chills as much as thrills.
