Goodreads asked Fred Wiehe:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Fred Wiehe Fright House started as a movie script. Independent producer/director Dave Reda and I were kicking around some ideas and came up with an insane asylum turned Halloween attraction. We both loved Halloween haunted houses, mazes, fear factories, and we thought: What if a Halloween attraction became real? What if the scares became real? We both loved ghost hunting shows too, but we both had the same complaint: Nothing ever really happens. So we thought, What if we gave audiences the ghost hunting episode they all wanted to see, wished they would see? We added in a young girl with psychic abilities who is the key to the haunting, and Fright House was born.
