Sarah Rayne Interview Excerpt: Scary Things

A little over a week ago we spoke with Sarah Rayne over Skype. Maggie interviewed Sarah about her writing, focusing primarily on the psychological thrillers that we have been highlighting here these past couple of weeks. Their conversation ranged from a discussion on the power of buildings to history as inspiration for plots, to the role that music plays in Sarah’s books. At the end, given the approach of Halloween, Maggie asked Sarah to talk about what she found scary. Below is that excerpt from the interview. We will be bringing you more from the interview over this week and next. We hope you enjoy hearing Sarah talk as much as we did.
