The Writer Will Take Your Questions Now (#168) -- Ghost Stories

What genre have you not written yet that you'd love to write?

This one's easy. I haven't written a straight-up ghost story, and I'd love to write one. Not a contemporary urban fantasy or a paranormal romance but a good, scary ghost story like Shirley Jackson's "The Haunting" or "The Shadows on the Wall" by Mary E. Wilkins Freeman.

To me, those are some of the hardest stories to write well (and there are thousands of them that aren't written well, trust me), which is why I haven't done one yet, but I certainly want to one day.
