Interview with Regina Wixon, Author of The Caretaker

24 Apr 2024

What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write The Caretaker?

The Caretaker is part of my Haunted Historical Mystery Series. In this series I endeavor to take my readers on a journey around the United States to be fascinated by our country’s history in a series of chilling books I hope you will love. It’s a dual timeline – present day and during the California Gold Rush. It highlights the Chinese that came over to work in the mines and their treatment. Rachael – the lead character is investigating several haunted hotels in SD and Hawthorne House is her last. There is a caretaker there who welcomes her and tells her the history of the house beginning in the late 1800s.

What’s your favorite genre to read? Is it the same as your favorite genre to write?

Mystery, thriller, suspense, paranormal, and yes, that is my favorite genre to write as well.

What books are on your TBR pile right now?

Simone St. James, and Barbara Michaels.

What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

The ending chapter and scene.

Do you have any quirky writing habits? (lucky mugs, cats on laps, etc.)

I like to drink Diet Root beer and have 90% dark chocolate on hand!!

Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?

No guts, no glory.

If you could choose one thing for readers to remember after reading your book, what would it be?

Empathy for others.
