A Scary Book for Young Readers
Writing a scary book for young readers is a tricky business. Where is that line between fun scary and scary scary?
With my latest book, The Frightful Ride of Michael McMichael, I’m hoping I found that line. It certainly was fun to write, even though it took forever. I really can’t remember when I jotted down the first few lines:
It was the thirteenth of November, a stormy night
When the Thirteen bus hove into sight.
Something about it didn’t seem right
But Michael McMichael boarded.
It might have been as long as 20 years ago! Read my blog post to find out more about how this frightful ride came together.
