Interview with Elizabeth Price , author of paranormal mystery Haunted Ends 3: Disco Inferno
The team of the hit cable television show “Haunted Ends” joins up again to investigate the Galaxy Disco. While shooting their show at the disco, the investigation takes a turn for the worse when the investigating team is transported back in time to the 1970’s. The team, along with Sam, their ghostly teammate, must figure out how to return to their own time by solving the mystery of who killed thirty people.
Sam forced his head into the bag, inhaling the scent of the food inside. “I can’t…” he lifted his head from the bag, “…believe you’re going to let a delicacy like this go to waste? I would die for another taste of a juicy hamburger. And a Double Heart Attack… oh man!”
“You’re already dead. You can’t die for something when you’re already dead. Besides, last time I tried to eat one you criticized me for it,” Rocky pointed out.
“Okay, I’d re-die. Better?” Sam smarted back. “Wait, that makes me sound like a 70s T-shirt. Let me think…”
Rocky’s eyes rolled in his skull as he attempted to remain calm. “Again, why are you here?” he asked more forcefully. He was on the verge of rekindling his relationship with his ex-wife, not to mention the only woman he truly loved. Once again Sam was interrupting his attempts.
An Interview with Elizabeth Price
-What inspired you to become a writer?
I was an only child, and there weren’t many children in my neighborhood around my age to play with, so I had to entertain myself most of the time. I was an avid reader growing up, and eventually I decided that reading stories wasn’t enough for me. I began writing my first novel at age 14 on a family vacation to the Grand Canyon, and I haven’t stopped since.
-If you could visit your book’s world for a day, what one thing would you do?
Hide. No, seriously! The Haunted Ends crew is known to get into some rather dangerous situations. Plus, although I love to write about ghosts, I’d rather not come across one for real. I’ve met several ghosts in the past, and none have been as fun as Sam.
-It’s two in the morning. What does your protagonist reveal in confidence? (Don’t worry, we won’t tell.)
That his drinking problem was ultimately the cause his divorce.
-Which of your characters would you go out for drinks with?
I write many scenes with the crew eating at restaurants and having drinks together, so I would have to say all of them, especially Silvia. She’s a woman that’s not afraid to have a good time.
–You’re in a tavern, and a dwarf challenges you to a duel. What do you do?
Reason with him, perhaps? “How about I buy you a pint instead? There’s no sense spilling blood on these clean floors — especially mine.”
-Is there a genre you could never write? Which and why?
The only genre I don’t enjoy writing is erotica… at least not for publication. I can’t say I could never write it, only that I prefer not to.
About Elizabeth Price
Elizabeth grew up in Redlands, California as an only child. The lack of siblings, cousins, or even kids in her neighborhood to play with sparked her imagination to life. She spent most days entertaining herself with elaborate stories, even doing so when her attention should have been elsewhere—like on her schoolwork.
As a teen, Elizabeth dove headfirst into the geeky culture of Star Trek and other science fiction and fantasy novels. She became so consumed that she spent all her free time and allowance on new books—eagerly anticipating their arrival. When she felt hindered by her limited allowance and the inevitable waiting period between new releases, it dawned on Elizabeth to revisit the creation of her own stories. This is where she was truly born as an author, pouring her imagination into multiple genres.
In 2009, Elizabeth graduated from California State University Fullerton with a bachelor’s degree in Communications, emphasizing Entertainment Studies. She has taken numerous writing classes to hone her craft—everything from script writing to copywriting, story writing and more. Elizabeth has been happily married to her supportive husband since 2001. He greatly encourages her in her writing endeavors and accompanies her on trips to haunted locations—her favorite pastime. She currently lives with her husband in Corona, California.
