Ghost hunter Yvette Fielding launches first storybook in Nantwich
Yvette Fielding launched her first book of ghost stories at a sold-out event at the Nantwich Bookshop & Coffee Lounge, writing Jonathan white.
She was interviewed by author Katherine Woodfine about her new book “Home in the Woods”, which is the first in a new series for readers ages 11 and up.
Fielding also read a spooky passage from his book to 40 people attending the event.
Participants also had the opportunity to ask questions about his career.
Fielding was Blue Peter’s youngest presenter at 18, and she went on to host and produce Ghosthunting With… and Most Haunted to become the “first lady” of the paranormal on television.
Aspiring reporters and grade 11 students Harriett and Jessie, from St Thomas More Catholic School in Crewe, interviewed Fielding ahead of the event for the first issue of their school’s new magazine.
Fielding said, “In this book I have drawn on some of my own experiences with the paranormal.
“I couldn’t stop remembering what it was like when I ventured into my very first haunted house.
“It was the priory of Michelham in East Sussex.
“I will never forget the fear, the terror and the utter excitement fueled by adrenaline.
“I spent the night shaking and screaming a lot, but once it was all over and dawn came, I couldn’t wait to do it again.
“I had been bitten by the ghost hunter virus.”
Denise Lawson, of Nantwich Bookshop & Coffee Lounge, said: “It was great to have another sold-out author event.
“A big thank you to Andersen Press for facilitating the event and to Yvette for launching her book with us.
“Once again thank you to our local community who supported the event and those from afar.
“People came from as far away as Lancaster and Suffolk.
“We look forward to welcoming Yvette back for the launch of her second book in the trilogy.”
