Interview with Tanith Morse

Please share a little about yourself.

I’m from the UK and live in a lovely place called Wandsworth, south London. I am an avid reader and a serious chocoholic. Ever since watching Willy Wonka as a kid, chocolate has been my passion and I’ve always dreamt of winning one of those golden lottery tickets.

Tell us a little about your latest or upcoming release.

My latest novel is a paranormal trilogy called Super Dark. It’s based in a fictional town called Elmfield - a place very similar to where I grew up. Super Dark tells the story of Sam Harper and Elliot Marsh, two kids thrown into a terrifying world where nothing is what is seems. There are twists and turns galore and you never quite know what is going to happen next. It’s an emotional rollercoaster ride.

Have you ever based your book or characters on actual events or people from your own life?

I came up with the idea for Super Dark after reading an article in the newspaper about a little girl who was snatched by a midwife and taken to live with a strange family for years before being reunited with her parents. I was fascinated by the story and wanted to explore the impact that sort of tragedy would have on a family.

Is there a theme or message in your work that you would like readers to connect to?

Love conquers all.

What would your readers be surprised to learn about you?

I’m a massive Frank Sinatra fan.

When you’re not writing what do you do? Do you have any hobbies or guilty pleasures?

When I’m not writing I work as a freelance film director. I also enjoy seeing family, eating chocolate and reading. My guilty pleasure is my One Direction album.

Which romance book or series (or other genre, if you don’t write romance) do you wish you had written?

Beautiful Disaster by Jamie Mcguire.

What is next for you? Do you have any scheduled upcoming releases or works in progress?

I’m working on a book about a boy who can speak to dogs. It’s a dark thriller with romantic elements once again set in south London. I’m really excited about it.

What is in your to read pile?

Hopeless by Colleen Hoover and Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn.

Book Description:

For fans of Stephenie Meyer comes a chilling love story that will have you hooked from the very first page. Super Dark is a tale of passion, guilt and redemption with a whopping, knock-you-to-your-knees twist!

Darkness stalks seventeen-year-old Sam Harper. Ten years ago on Halloween night, grotesque creatures snatched her best friend Elliot and Sam narrowly escaped with her life. Now a decade on, the police investigation has ground to a halt and Elliot's whereabouts remains a mystery.

Traumatized by her ordeal, Sam finds it hard to make friends. She is mistrustful of authority and changed schools more times than she cares to remember. To her, the world is cruel and unforgiving.

Then she meets the enigmatic Lee Weaver. With his gorgeous face and magnetic presence, he turns heads wherever he goes. Sam has never wanted anyone as much as she wants Lee, but there are things about the alluring stranger that don't add up, leading Sam to ask unsettling questions about her past. Soon she discovers the boy of her dreams is keeping a terrible secret: one that threatens to destroy everything Sam holds dear.

Super Dark is a seductive love story that will keep you guessing right until the final page.
