2008 Haunted Hearths and Sapphic Shades author interview with Lyn McConchie. See the Sacchi Green post for general book info.

Can you talk a bit about your inspiration for your story "Waiting Tables
and Time"?

I lived in the city in my story during the sixties and the "Monet" was a real coffeebar. There are a number of ghost tales about the city from that period so it was natural for me to chose the setting. I've always liked the sort of ghost that isn't really frightening, more poignant and this story just came out of left field, grabbed me by the throat, and that was it. I wrote it.

Have you ever had an encounter with a ghost?

Yes, or so I believe - and another reliable person saw it too, while a third saw the surrounding effects.

What's your favorite ghost story (you can pick a movie if you prefer)?

TRYST by Elswyth Thane. It's beautifully written and the characters are so real. It was written in 1939 but holds up solidly still.

What are you working on now and where can readers find out more about you?

Um, well, it's been a wonderful year for me thus far. Apart from selling to several dozen magazines, I've had work in anthologies, DESOLATE PLACES, RUINS-TERRA, and HAUNTED HEARTHS, and sold to GHOST TOWN, THINGS AREN'T ALWAYS WHAT THEY SEEM, andPANTECHNICON. I've had a book accepted by AVALOOK PUBLICATIONS (the fourth in my humorous non-fiction series, DAZE IN THE COUNTRY, scheduled for October this year), a book accepted by CYBERWIZARD PRODUCTIONS, (a western, SOUTH OF RIO
CHAMA, scheduled for later this year), a book accepted by TOR (THE QUESTING ROAD, a fantasy, scheduled for first half of 2009) and a fourth book accepted by DAVERANA ENTERPRISES (VESTIGES OF FLAMES, a post-holocaust novel, publications as yet unscheduled.)

Where can I be found?
Currently all over the place it seems. As for work, I start writing a new fantasy shortly. This is set in the same world as QUESTING ROAD but almost a thousand years earlier.
