Here are today’s CROSSROADS TOUR FEATURED AUTHORS:

Patrice Lyle

Headshot 2012

Patrice Lyle has never met a ghost story she didn’t like. She’s been fascinated with the paranormal since childhood. She attributes this fascination to having heard old family stories of ghostly wreaths, ESP, and money hidden in the lining of antique purses. She grew up on the Oregon Coast and has a Master’s Degree in Writing Popular Fiction.

Now she lives with her husband and three cats near Orlando, where she’s working on the next Poison Ivy novel and trolling the area for ghostly happenings.

THE QUESTIONS

What’s the spookiest song you’ve ever heard / one that gives you chills?

“Break On Through” by The Doors. It always makes me think of breaking on through to the other side.

Got a favourite creepy urban legend / one that never fails to freak you out?

Yes… the kidneys heist one! Where you wake up in a bathtub and discover your kidneys have been removed. That always freaks me out!

Jessica Byliss

 

Bayliss - Head Shot #3

Jessica Bayliss is an author of commercial fiction who loves nothing better than getting lost in a good story, whether in print or on film. When not busy with her latest fiction project, she can be found loving her friends and family—especially husband, Eric—playing with one pesky Havanese, or trying to appease an ornery cockatiel, typically with a cup of coffee near at hand. She has several stories out now, another on the way, and a novel in the works to be released later this year. Recent works: “Breathless,” a standalone romantic ghost story; “The Muse,” a short horror piece in Issue 31 of Sanitarium Magazine; “Alice in Wilderland,” a contemporary YA story in the Alice in Wonderland-inspired anthology, “Beware the Little White Rabbit”; and “The Ship,” a free piece of flash fiction in Theme of Absence Magazine.

THE QUESTIONS

What’s the spookiest song you’ve ever heard / one that gives you chills?

“Oh Fortuna” from Carmina Burana. I’ve sung that with a couple choirs, and it’s incredible.

Got a favourite creepy urban legend / one that never fails to freak you out?

OMG, any story about bugs that use humans as unwilling incubators. You know, the spider bite gone wrong. Baby spiders everywhere.
