An Australian Ghost town. A resident demon and a local Shaman. A confrontation with evil awaits.

Clarisse realizes that running from evil is not a bad idea until you figure out you can\’t hide. When some ghosts get tired of hanging around, they latch onto you. At the centre of the war on evil is a historic Church that carries dark secrets within its walls. After she meets with the local Shaman, Clarisse discovers secrets with evil consequences by digging too deep into the town’s past. When matters become complicated, she visits a circus of young performers on the outskirts of town triggering unexpected paranormal events and unleashing memories of a one-hundred-year curse. After being caught in the crossfire of a battle for evil supremacy, Clarisse confronts Little Charlie as he rallies the town\’s ghosts into an impeccable evil stronghold.

Can the local Shaman and townsfolk rally in her quest to defeat the evil incarnate or will the town succumb to Little Charlie and his evil crew?

Haunting in Old Tailem is the third book of the Haunting Clarisse Series. If you like spine-tingling, chilling, creepy and spooky supernatural thrillers, then you will love this story by 2020 USA Readers\’ Favorite International Book Awards Finalist in Supernatural Fiction, Janice Tremayne.

He hung with the rope around his neck, his tongue sticking out with a red-starved oxygen face. At the same time, he was smiling as though he was only having fun. Death was a reenactment that he had become accustomed to, to the point he thought it funny; a way of horrifying others and making them pay attention. He had a young mind—innocent and conditioned to get the attention of others. Little Charlie didn’t know whether he was dead or alive; far too young to understand. As far as he was concerned, tying a loop around his neck, jumping, and choking to death made him realize he felt no pain. He could do it over and over again.

Clarisse knew from her encounter in Hartley that Little Charlie was an attention seeker and someone who liked to cling onto you. That could explain how he had ended up in Old Tailem Town. Running away from evil might seem like a good idea at the time, but you could not hide.

“Come over here, Little Charlie. There is nothing to be afraid of,” she said.

He replied with a cheeky grin on his boyish face. His mousy brown hair thrown from side to side, he signaled with his right index finger, waving it left to right many times.

“Nuh-uh,” he mimed, his way of saying no.

An Interview With Janice Tremayne

-What inspired you to become a writer?

I have always wanted to be a writer, but life and work got in the way in the early years. When the opportunity arose to dedicate my time to the craft of writing I fulfilled a lifelong ambition to publish a novel. I like to tell stories that readers find spooky, thrilling, chilling, suspenseful and entertaining. Something unique and imaginative that they never anticipated. I have a big imagination and writing helps me express those thoughts and ideas to readers that are prepared to spend hours of their precious time enjoying my work.

-If you could visit your book’s world for a day, what one thing would you do?

This might be simplistic as a response, but I would talk to them over lunch and dinner and get to know them better. That is, let them tell me their story. Perhaps I missed something about their wants, likes and dislikes. My characters become my friends so maybe we could become acquainted and see each other again. Who knows?

-It’s two in the morning. What does your protagonist reveal in confidence? (Don’t worry, we won’t tell.)

How painful it is to be a spirit hunter. They feel a great responsibility and the weight of the world on their shoulders. Being a spirit hunter can also be lonely, so they confide in their emotions about their quest in life. Perhaps they are on the cusp of giving it all up to have a normal life and I may end up counselling them to stick with it—reinforce how important they are to their cause.

-Which of your characters would you go out for drinks with?

There is a character in the book called Digger. He is your typical Australian larrikin, and he would fun to be around. He would tell jokes, get up to no good—mischievous and tell stories about others. A genuine sort of guy that is down to earth personality.

-You’re in a tavern, and a dwarf challenges you to a duel. What do you do?

Tell him to go away and pick on his size.

-Is there a genre you could never write? Which and why?

I could never write erotica novels with naked covers. I don’t even know how those writers create such work? It’s a deeply personal thing. But I suppose there is a market for it, or they wouldn’t be writing it. I just think it\’s tacky and not very literary.
