Interview with Willow Rose, author of Drip Drop Dead
07 Aug 2018
What can you tell us about your new release, Drip Drop Dead?
It’s the creepiest book I have written so far. At least according to my husband lol. A woman is found dead in her bed and at first they think she must have died in her sleep, until they realize the cause of death is drowning. Emma Frost digs into the case and soon realizes she’s up against a killer who is quite out of the ordinary and who knows how to gain access to any house on the island. This is a book that might ruin your daily shower as you will never look at a water drain the same again.
What fictional literary world would you most like to visit?
I desperately want to go to Fantastica and ride on Falkor, the luck-dragon from the Neverending Story. It has been a dream of mine since I was just a kid. I even have a dog that looks like him now and sometimes I call him Falkor in the hope he’ll start flying but it hasn’t happened yet.
What’s on your writing desk?
Lots of small knickknacks. Many of them are turtle figures since I love turtles. I also have snow globes. I collect snow globes and then I shake them when I need a break to think while writing.
BAM. You’re a superhero. What’s your superpower?
Teleportation powers. I want to be able to go see my family across the pond whenever I want.
What advice would you give your teenage self?
Stop telling people you want to be a vet, when you know deep down that you don’t want to be one. You’re just saying it to please people. Because you know it makes your parents proud. Fact is you want to be a writer. They’ll find out eventually so you might as well tell them.
If you had to pick one place to vacation for the rest of your life, where would you choose?
Cocoa Beach, Florida. Wait…I already live there. Guess I am vacationing there for the rest of my life.
What scene in Drip Drop Dead was your favorite to write?
There were a lot of fun scenes to write. The first one was probably my favorite, where this woman keeps hearing strange sounds from her drains and from her bathroom at night. She thinks she is going crazy and being paranoid until she realizes she’s not. By then it is too late.
