And now some holiday cheer from Author 
Sarah Dalton!

Favourite Christmas gift of all time: It has to be a Casio keyboard when I was 8 or 9. My family were struggling a little at the time, and I really wanted it but didn't dare ask for it. When we were looking round the shops I think my dad realized how much I wanted it and bought it in secret. Then on Christmas day I saw it under the tree and it was the biggest surprise ever.

What would you buy the main character of your book for Christmas? I would buy her a torch. That way she wouldn't have to keep creeping around psychiatric hospitals in the dark!

My Daylight Monsters: 

Blurb for My Daylight Monsters:  

I always thought my demons came out in the day, rather than at night. I’ve never been scared of the dark.

I was wrong.

The dark makes everything worse.

When Mary’s psychiatrist advises a short stay at a psychiatric unit, her worst nightmares are confirmed. How can she get better in a place that fills her with dread?
