Ghost Stories and How to Write Them by Kathleen McGurl
In her easy style, Kathleen mixes her own ghost stories with advice on how to write them and the 3 main types of ghost story. She believes that all have to have a beginning (the main character has a problem and story to resolve this through their actions), a middle (before the problem gets better, things get in the way) and an end (the issue is resolved). The 3 main types are epic, tragedy and comedy.

Her expertise as a writer for Womag means that she thinks there are 3 ghost story types for this market and story rules for each of these three, which she reveals in the book.

An entertaining and informative book, if a little on the short side. 9/10
