Why Dawn Goodwin loves Halloween!

I love Halloween. Next to Christmas, it is my favourite time of the year. My heart lifts with every turn of the central heating thermostat because it means I can celebrate the long, chilly evenings by lighting a log fire, throwing on some fluffy socks and reading a good book. Throw in some comfort food and some chocolate and I’m in heaven. Of course, just as clothes and food can be seasonal, so are the books we read.

Karen Osman on her second novel, The Home!

Psychological thrillers, crime, and domestic noir novels are all genres I have enjoyed reading so it made sense that I would write books along the same lines. Like most authors, I get asked a lot about where I get the ideas for my books, especially as the darker themes may seem a little at odds with what people see on my social media profiles!

This is me!

When I was asked to write a guest post about Broken Dolls I wasn’t sure what I could add to previous articles; so I have decided to tell you a little more about what makes me tick.
So please bear with me. It will be my most personal post and I hope it will give readers a sense of what I have achieved – and what they too could achieve.
I have always loved a challenge; in fact I thrive on them. Each morning when I wake up I set myself a few daily goals. The tasks are attainable. I do not set myself goals that would lead to failure – at least not too often!

The countdown to The Pupil...

One moment of carelessness; four shattered lives.

The countdown has begun to the publication of The Pupil, my second novel with Aria Fiction, and I am possibly more nervous and excited about this one than I was about my debut.
