Creepy Tales Podcast with Melissa de la Cruz and Nina LaCour


Penguin Teen are running a podcast series called Creepy Tales, and each episode features 3 authors who take on the challenge of writing a spooky short story based on a prompt. The first author writes the first 500 words, second author follows on with 500, then the third author finishes off -- and only the final author gets to see the whole thing before recording the podcast!

For my episode with Melissa de la Cruz and Nina LaCour, our prompt was 'The Snake', with Melissa taking the first section, then me, then Nina. Want to hear the story read by all three of us?

Spooky Halloween chat with Dawn Kurtagich

 In case you missed this live chat on Instagram last night, you can catch up here. We talked about perfect books and films to devour this spooky season, and played a haunting game of 2 Truths and a Lie!




Also, just a note to say that the live chat I announced with Rachel Burge won't be happening this week, buuuuuut we're cooking up something else fun to do online later this month. Watch out for an announcement soon.
