Nancy Baker blames her life-long love of horror and fantasy fiction on the first horror story she can remember: The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin by Beatrix Potter. She dabbled in rock and roll (writing lyrics and singing in basement bands during her university years) before switching to writing fiction. She made her first professional sale in 1988, to Rod Serling’s Twilight Zone magazine and has subsequently published four novels.

She is happily married and has neither children nor cats.

Hi Alaina,
I'm glad you enjoyed The Night Inside. The US publisher changed the title for the paperback version, presumably because they thought it would sell more copies with that title. I never really liked "Kiss of the Vampire" but I didn't really get a choice in that matter, and I had to trust their judgement.

More Avoidance Behaviour

I’ve been stalled on both the “real” thing and the “let’s pretend this isn’t real” thing because it seems I can no longer turn off my internal editor and everything is hard. This, naturally, means I have even less to say on this benighted blog than usual.  So today’s topic is: how to justify the time you spend on Twitter.  (Some might say there is no justification but we will ignore them.)

I'd enjoyed her earlier books but this one shows her growth as a writer. Worldbuilding, characters, structure, language, all make this a worthy award-winner.

I love her language and ability to play with the narrative voice (I adore The Winter Prince). The stucture of this (a confession) doesn't come off 100% but it's still a tense, beautiful, moving book.
