Blurb (from Goodreads):
Kate will do anything to be the teacher’s pet

An aspiring horror writer, Kate likes a little scare. When offered a spot at an exclusive weeklong writing conference, she jumps at the chance to go. After all, it’s taught by William Drewe, the master of horror himself.

But strangely, when Kate arrives, William Drewe is nowhere to be found. Filling in for him is his brother, Gideon, whose assignments give Kate the thrills she seeks. With a teacher like this, she’ll get all the material she needs to become a bestselling author . . . if she survives.

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Richie Tankersley Cusick including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author’s personal collection.

Teenager Kate is off to a writing conference; she likes to be scared, and she likes to write horror stories, but she isn’t prepared to be part of one!
What is the cause of the strange whispery sounds she keeps hearing? Is Gideon what he seems? And what has happened to the star of the conference – William Drewe?

It’s been years since I read this book, so I was interested to discover who the killer was again!

Kate was an interesting character, but even though she claimed to like to be scared, it wasn’t the case at all! Even she admitted that when the danger was real, she didn’t like to feel scared after all.

The storyline in this was okay, and it was a little creepy in places. It was difficult to know what was going on, and who was behind all the weird and creepy things that kept happening, and I really could not work out the mystery, or guess who was dead and why.
The ending was okay, and the whole thing was a bit creepy and weird when the answers were revealed.

The biography of the author at the end was also pretty interesting, and I really liked seeing the photos!
Overall; a good YA horror story,
6.5 out of 10.

  1. Hiya! It's been ages since I've read this one too! but I remember really liking it. She was one of my favourite point horror authors along with Diane Hoh and L.J. Smith! I may have to dig out my copy sometime as I can't remember the ending at all! :-)
