This question consumes Harold Withers as he and his wife Nora attempt to bury the ghosts of past tensions in their new house. While Harold obsesses over opening the locked door in his study, Nora yearns for the child and the new attempt at life Harold promised to deliver.
What lies behind the locked door has other plans though.
When Nora finally realizes that there is only one way to ensure she gets what she wants, she takes matters into her own hands.
As the lies stack up between the married couple and the abuse continues, the closet door opens to reveal what can only be called...
The Wish Room.
The Wish Room is an offshoot of a series of psychological suspense and horror thrillers in which Christopher Bloodworth delves into the dark and hidden places of broken relationships.
Q. Why do some of your novels focus on abusive relationships?
A. I've always enjoyed fiction that explores our darkest thoughts and potential capabilities. I believe that normal human beings can be capable of absolute wickedness as well as absolute kindness.
Q. Is The Wish Room part of a series, and if so, what other titles are part of the series?
A. The Wish Room is an offshoot of a collection of psychological suspense horrors that aren't connected by anything other than the existence of a Wish Room in both. My novel "Handbook for a Teenage Antichrist" is about a high school senior that falls in love with the intimidating, new girl at his school while his body begins to twist and fill with a new, dark power. There will be two other books in that series coming soon.
Q. Do you only write psychological suspense horrors?
A. No. I have 2 urban fantasy series coming soon, which are more thriller than psychological - although I suspect there will be an element of horror in there somewhere.
