I have been known to look under the bed before turning the light out.
I have been known to check the whole flat, room by room, every nook and cranny, before going to sleep.
Usually it’s because I’ve been watching some drama on TV that has spooked me.
But sometimes it’s because I’ve been reading something deeply disturbing, and the only way I’m going to have peace of mind is by performing this paranoid ritual.
So yes, “Scaredy Kat” is a deeply personal story.
The idea of a woman’s irrational fears was the starting point. From there things got a little....well....twisted.
