Jason Arnopp, the Doctor Who writer whose new thriller novel Ghoster is currently terrifying readers up and down the country, will talk about his three decades in writing, from journalism to fiction - and he’ll give you every opportunity to pick his brain.
“Have you always wanted to write that elusive novel?” Jason says. “Do you want to know how I found my agent, my publisher, my film adaptation option deals? This is the session in which I will actively encourage you to stop me talking all about myself, by asking me anything and everything you always wanted to know about being a writer, but were too afraid to ask!”
"Kate Collins has been ghosted. She was supposed to be moving in with her new boyfriend Scott, but all she finds after relocating to Brighton is an empty flat. Scott has vanished. His possessions have all disappeared. Except for his mobile phone. Kate knows she shouldn't hack into Scott's phone. She shouldn't look at his Tinder, his texts, his social media. But she can't quite help herself. That's when the trouble starts. Strange, whispering phone calls from numbers she doesn't recognise. Scratch marks on the door that she can't explain....Prepare to never look at your phone the same way again..."
