Friday Feature: Interview With a Ghost



Chrys Fey here taking over Kelly Hashway’s blog for this Friday Feature and I’m not alone. I have with me the MC of my short story, Ghost of Death. Did I forget to mention she’s a ghost? Yup, she is. Let’s get started, shall we?


Hey, Jolie.

*eyes widen* You can see me?

Of course, I can see you. I’m the one who wrote your story, remember?

Oh, that’s right. I’m sorry. I have ghost-brain. You know, like pregnancy-brain?

I get it. Do you mind if I ask you a few questions? Our readers haven’t met a ghost before and they’re dying (no pun intended) to know more about you.

Sure, fire away!


1. How did you realize you were dead?

I saw my corpse. That’s a pretty big sign, wouldn’t you say? *sighs* I’m sorry. I’m a little testy, right now.

2. I’d be testy, too. What was your first thought upon seeing your body?

I thought it was a dream or hallucination. Or maybe I was having a mental breakdown. I didn’t want to believe it. Who would? After the shock wore off, I was pissed because there’s so much I still want to do. Who wants to be dead when your life is just supposed to be starting?

3. What was your life like before you were a ghost?

I was a college student going for my journalist degree. I had just won an internship to Globe Magazine and had the dream of being the best journalist ever. On Wednesdays, I’d go to a small pizzeria with my friends, and on Fridays, we’d go to Galaxy Bar where I’d drink a few Wormholes and would get sweaty with my boyfriend, Cody, on the dance floor.

4. Do you recall anything about your murder?

Nothing. Yada, Yent. Zilch. I wish I did, though. I hate knowing my killer is out there roaming free. Maybe even planning to kill another college student.

5. I hope not! Can you tell us about the detective on your case?

Detective Avrianna Heavenborn is a real bad ass. No one dares to cross her. Not only is she fierce, but people also fear her because they think she’s a freak. That’s a story for another time, though.

6. What it like to be a ghost?

It sucks! I can’t touch Cody or hug my mom. I can‘t see my reflection in the mirror or talk to my best friend. But there are a few perks. For example, I can stare at people, right in front of their faces, and I don’t have to worry about being rude. I can even walk through doors, which is a neat trick.

7. What do you miss the most?

So much. I think it’s the littlest things that I took for granted that I miss the most, though. Like the smell of Cody’s cologne, my mom’s homemade cookies, and fresh cut grass.


I think I’d miss smells, too. Like the smell of flowers and baking bread.

Mm. And taste. Like the taste of pizza. That’s a big one!

Oh yes, pizza. Our readers are going to have to read Ghost of Death to understand your obsession with pizza.


Definitely! Well, I gotta fly. I need to see if Avrianna has any leads. Chow!

Detective Reid Sanders doesn’t believe in the supernatural, but when he’s faced with a crime scene that defies the laws of nature, he has no other choice but to start believing. And solving a magical murder involves working with a witch.

Liberty Sawyer embodies the look of your classic evil witch, so, it’s no surprise when she uncovers the murderer is a witch that she becomes Reid’s number one suspect. If she can’t convince him otherwise, more people could lose their lives to dark magic, including her.

  5. Interesting concept. I'll have to get it now that I finally have something to read it on.
    Excuse my English ignorance, but what's a wormhole?

    1. Yay! Thank you, Roger!

      Well, in my story a Wormhole is a drink. But in science its a shortcut through space, like a tunnel. :)

  6. So happy to see Chrys here! I enjoyed the interview. I think it would be hard to be a ghost for a lot of reasons. Not being able to smell would be really weird! Thanks for sharing and wishing Chrys the best of luck. :)

    1. Smelling is definitely something we take for granted...until he consider not being able to smell at all.

      Delete
    2. I have an overly sensitive sense of smell, and it's a curse. I hate it. I couldn't imagine not being able to smell though.
