Friends creator Marta Kauffman reveals she spoke to Matthew Perry just TWO WEEKS before his death - saying actor was 'in a good place' But when my sister took a photography course later on, she showed it to her tutor and apparently he was terrified! So that little nugget was the starting point. That and the idea of Tim and Abi being twins, which is interesting from a storytelling point of view. And it’s a cheesy thing to say, but I just listened to their voices. Once those characters started talking, the story just flowed from there. It was a delight to write.

I can’t quite believe that what I have just read, is a debut novel. Although Will Maclean is an experienced television scriptwriter, his first published fiction novel “The Apparition Phase”, is a stunning literary debut with excellent narrative, an engrossing, unsettling storyline and diverse characters that are instantly endearing. There’s a satisfying nod to genre in Maclean’s haunted house crew, from the corduroy-wearing Shaw determined to make his mark on academia, to New Age assistant Sally (to whom Tim feels an immediate attraction), golden couple Seb and Juliet, brittle cardigan-wearing Polly, and jealous, grumpy Neil. But the prank leads to a terrifying succession of all-too-real events, the consequences of which will haunt Tim for ever. The story itself is written by one of the main characters in the book, and it’s their opinion on certain matters connected to the main plot. The novel stands alone without the piece – you don’t need to have read it to enjoy the book. There are secrets in it, though. It’s also one of my favourite characters, so it was good to revisit their voice.All we have to do is make out that it's all fine. We take her up here, she sees how absolutely unhaunted our attic and indeed our entire house is, and that's that.' Abi touched her fingertips to her lips. 'All we have to do is be normal for a while.' In the attic room where they pursue their hobbies, they decide to fake their own ghostly image, taking a snap of an eerie, empty-eyed figure which proves to be impressively creepy.
