“Why are we women always so plagued with guilt for one reason or another?”
Dee MacDonald, The Runaway Wife

“My dear woman, I love watching stuff like this! It gives me inspiration for the tales I tell, the books I write, the nice little twists of horror I can insert into my writing if it looks like it's becoming dull - little shocks to wake up the reader”
Dee MacDonald, A Body in Seaview Grange

“Not for the first time she wondered if men really did worry about things as much as women did”
Dee MacDonald, A Body at the Tea Rooms
