Blog Tour: Madman Across the Water By Caroline Angel @ucat42 @GHBTours

Madman Across the Water
By- Caroline Angel
Genre- Horror

For generations one family has been haunted by something... something that stalks. It sees and listens, it watches and follows. In the shadows and mist it waits, to take you, to hurt you, perhaps to kill you. And if it doesn't kill you, you'll wish it did. 

A creepy, suspenseful saga of family, horror, and mystery, this is one story sure to leave you frightened of the woods at night, fog, and all things tall and slender.

An Interview with Caroline Angel- 

What inspired you to write MADMAN ACROSS THE WATER?

I had been writing short stories, and was always asking people 'what gives you nightmares, or what scares you the most? My nephew told me about The Slenderman and I was intrigued. Also many (many many) years ago I had been obsessed with the Elton John song Madman Across the Water, and had always intended to write a story based on that song. Once I married the two together the story took on a life of its own.

When or at what age did you know you wanted to be a writer?

I honestly don't remember. I always had a very active imagination and used to run little stories in my head. They made their way onto paper soon enough, and I have stories that i write when I was about give still folded up in my diary.

What is the earliest age you remember reading your first book?

When I started school. It was Black Beauty. My parents were in a religious cult and I didn't have access to books (other than their cult ones, or the Bible) until then. The next book was a Star Trek novel.

What genre of books do you enjoy reading?

Horror, Science Fiction, Adventure, mainly

What is your favorite book?

Lordy, I don't know! I like so many. Lord Of The Rings, The Talisman - I could go on forever.

You know I think we all have a favorite author. Who is your favorite author and why?

I really don't have one. Truthfully. My likes jump all over the place and change depending on the mood I am in or what I am reading at the time.

If you could travel back in time here on earth to any place or time. Where would you go and why?

I'd go back to when i was maybe 12 or so, and explain that it's okay to dream, it's okay to stay at school (cult would not allow this) and to move out of home. Of course, I'd tell myself to keep writing!

When writing a book do you find that writing comes easy for you or is it a difficult task?

Usually it just flows, I almost zone out and the words just appear. Lately I've been having a difficult time at work and this has made the words slow down, stop, even, so I guess my mood affects my writing a great deal

Do you have any little fuzzy friends? Like a dog or a cat? Or any pets?

Four horses, eight dogs, three cats, two chickens and four peafowl I live on a farm

What is your "to die for", favorite food/foods to eat?


Do you have any advice for anyone that would like to be an author?

Write! I know that's what everyone says, but it's true. Get those words out of you. You'll never know what coulda been if you don't try
