In Halloween month join authors Karen Maitland and Laura Purcell as they talk to Professor Bran Nicol about the essential elements needed to create a sense of horror, mystique and foreboding.
Using examples from their own work, and other writers of the genre, they will discuss what it takes to raise the goose bumps and spook the senses. Karen Maitland is the author of A Gathering of Ghosts, a supernatural medieval thriller set on the wilds of Dartmoor; Laura Purell is the author of the haunting novel, The Silent Companions and her latest Victorian chiller, The Corset.
