The Psychology of a Good Storyteller (Fantasy Prone Personalities)

The Psychology of a Good Storyteller (Fantasy Prone Personalities)

IMG_0244

Ever since I was a child I would escape at every chance into the world of fantasy offered by authors such as Enid Blyton and later John Wyndham and then others such as Stephen King and James Herbert.  As I have got older my tastes have changed but to me there is still nothing better than immersing myself in the pages of a good book and since I have become an author of fantasy fiction (The…

My new book…. and those of you who know my daughter may recognise the front cover as her work in more than one way!
For more details or to get a copy go to my authors website at http://www.karenwrightonbooks.com
As to what type of book it is, well young adult fantasy fiction a’la Harry Potter & Lord of the Rings.  If you read it I would love some honest reviews on Amazon.
Paperback version coming by the end of next week!
Blurb:
‘Most of us, from time to time, wonder what happens to us when we die. Sara Carson didn’t wonder though, she knew; we decomposed. Sara Carson had no delusions about heaven, hell, life after death, or reincarnation. However, what Sara Carson did not know, was that some of us are special.

Sara Carson was one of those special people, and her most incredible journey did not begin, until the day she died.’

Well here is a short taster to prick your curiosity ….
