1. Who are you and what you are you about?
@SpookyIsles I’m a writer based in Luton, Bedfordshire with a long interest in the paranormal and psychical research.
2. Sum up your life in one tweet.
@SpookyIsles A concerted effort to get to the truth behind many of the mysteries that have shaped and influenced mankind over the years.
3, Do you believe in ghosts (and have you ever seen one)?
@SpookyIsles I believe that people see and experience ghosts, yes. Not seen one but I have taken part in many seances, that kind of thing.
4. Favourite spooky spot?
@SpookyIsles It would have to be the site of Borley Rectory, the famous most haunted house in England. I wrote a book about it in 2009.
5. Tell us one interesting fact about yourself that we might not know.
@SpookyIsles Reading @guynsmith Night of the Crabs pulp horror classic in 1977 encouraged me to start writing.
6. Vampires, zombies or werewolves?
@SpookyIsles It would have to be vampires. I grew up with Hammer Films starting with Dracula Has Risen From the Grave in 1974.
7. Favourite horror film?
@SpookyIsles The Exorcist, but Blood on Satan’s Claw is my favourite British horror film of all time. Truly a masterpiece.
8. What would you like to be doing in 10 years?
@SpookyIsles A full-time author travelling around the world examining and writing about all the haunted places that don’t get written about.
9. Best horror/supernatural author?
@SpookyIsles Guy N. Smith for sure, a huge influence. I think James Herbert would have to be a close second.
10. Got anything interesting coming up?
@SpookyIsles I have a new book Written in Blood, which looks at the history of vampires in British culture coming out on 1st July.
