Today I’m asking GV Pearce 5 questions about their new book!
1. What’s the name of your latest book – and how hard was it to pick a title?
The book is called Ghost Story, which is also an accurate description for its contents. There were a few themes so it was a little difficult to choose, but sometimes it’s nice to get straight to the point. I’m sure John wishes Sherlock would do that more often too!
2. If you could choose anyone from any time period, who would you cast as the leads in your latest book?
Early 1980s Paul McGann and Richard E Grant. There are some photographs of the pair of them taken behind the scenes of a film that absolutely fits the aesthetic for this John and Sherlock. McGann’s overgrown hair is perfect for an ex-military man finding his new persona, and Grant has always looked a little spooky.
3. What five words best describe your story?
Eerie, melancholy, uncanny, sanguine, tactile.
4. Who is your favourite fictional team/couple?
Gomez & Morticia Addams have always been my touchstone for perfect relationships. They’re always there for one another, no matter how strange their lives become.
5. What song reflects a theme, character, relationship or scene in your book?
‘When You Don’t See Me’ by Sisters of Mercy could easily apply to both the central relationship and the central theme of the book (not to give too much away)
About Ghost Story
John Watson loves his husband, but he’d like Sherlock Holmes to leave this case alone. They’re supposed to be taking a break from London. From work. But then again, when has Sherlock’s brain ever taken a holiday? And honestly, the strange disappearance of Gloria Evans bothers them both—though for very different reasons.
