Writing An Appetizing Recipe: Paranormal With A Dash Of Suspense/ Romance and Thrills:
Everything that you will need, you probably already have. If you are a lover of the paranormal genre, your cupboard will be full of every ingredient needed. If you have not had the pleasure of tasting this delightful dish – hang in there because you are in store for a treat.
In my opinion, the great Stephen King owns a blue ribbon in the horror genre, but without adding a bowl full of paranormal to his recipe – ‘The Shining’ just would not have been the same. Then there is James Patterson, the king of crime/ murder mystery thrillers – amazing! Please understand, I love mystery, fantasy, psychological thrillers, but give me a plateful of paranormal suspense, paranormal romance, and watch the weight scale climb!
Between 2002 and 2004, the number of paranormal romances published in the United States doubled to 170 a year – or so the Wikipedia web site says.
Okay, here are just a few authors who have mastered the finest cuisine (paranormal) that will make your mouth water.
Top five of my list, Terri Reid – any of her Mary O’Reilly paranormal mysteries:
Noel Hynd – Ghosts:
Robbi Sommers – The Beautiful Evil:
Lorraine Kennedy – any of the Immortal Destiny Series:
Stephanie Draven – Dark Sins and Desert Sands:
Many great writers are now branching out into different genres. Jamieson Wolf’s work is a great example of how tasty it is to add paranormal elements to a romance/suspense thriller. As an author and an avid reader of paranormal suspense – ya might say that I’m just a little biased when it comes to this subject. I love creating characters, and putting them in an unearthly environment – watching a romance grow, only to find out that one of them is harboring dark secrets that upon revealed – unleash a multitude of paranormal terror.
So fill your plate full of Paranormal and don’t forget to add your spices – a dash of suspense, romance and thrills. Bon appetit!
