Thorne & Cross: Haunted Nights LIVE!


"It was such a pleasure to be a guest on the fabulous new talk show, Haunted Nights Live! with Tamara Thorne and Alistair Cross. Tamara and Alistair have obvious chemistry and were so easy to talk to. They immediately made me feel comfortable and at ease. The questions they asked reflected their interest in me as a writer and as a person. It was great fun and I look forward to listening to their upcoming chats with their interesting line up of terrific authors."

~ Q.L. Pearce, bestselling author of over 150 books

"This show fills a desperate need in the literary horror community: serious conversation about what horror is, how one writes it, why one would bother, what one should read, in the company of two expert and delightful hosts. I had a great time, will be more than happy to come back and spread the word, and will definitely be steering my colleagues your way as both guests and listeners."

~ Glen Hirshberg, Shirley Jackson Award winning author

"The hosts of this awesome show are naturals on the air, as well as authors who define the state of the art with their own writing. Tamara Thorne and Alistair Cross put a special kind of thumbprint on what is hot and edgy in the industry right now. You want the pulse? Tune in to Thorne and Cross: Haunted Nights LIVE!"

~ Michael Aronovitz, author of "Seven Deadly Pleasures," "The Voices in Our Heads," and "Alice Walks."

"I’ve done a lot of interviews in my time and rarely have I had as much fun as I did with hosts Alistair Cross and Tamara Thorne. Though their stock in trade may be the cold spirits of ominous specters, I found them far more warm and welcoming than the average “haint." I had such a good time that I am... <ahem>.... dying to do it again!"

~ Hal Bodner, author the West Hollywood Vampire series

"I have seldom had so much pure, unalloyed fun doing a radio show as I did on Thorne & Cross: Haunted Nights LIVE! Tamara and Alistair are engaging, professional, and easy to talk to -- they are gracious hosts. I felt as though we were chatting easily over a glass or two of wine and a plate of snacks. The hour flew by, and by the time we were done, my face hurt from smiling so much! I can't wait to get back on the show ... and I know that when we do, we'll pick up the conversation as though we've been apart for five minutes."

~ Sylvia Shults, author of Fractured Spirits: Hauntings at the Peoria State Hospital

"I must say, of all the interviews I have given during my writing career, appearing on Haunted Nights LIVE! was, by far, the most enjoyable of them all. The chemistry between Tamara and Alistair is fantastic and handled in such a way that it is easy for a guest like myself to not only join in, but feel like we've all been hanging out and talking for years. Never before have I felt so at ease during an interview. It was so much fun, and, if given the opportunity, I would love to do it again!"

~ William Malmborg, author of Jimmy, Text Message, and Scraping the Bone


"Thanks very much to Thorne & Cross. They are generous and thoughtful interviewers, and they complement each other nicely. I had a good time talking about Polly and about writing."

~ Don Bredes, author of Polly and the One and Only World


"Haunted Nights with Thorne and Cross gives me hope that the printed word is till alive and sexy and mysterious and yummy! These folks love books and we need them like we need oxygen!" 

~ Jay Bonansinga, NYT bestselling author of The Walking Dead novels and LUCID.
