Humour

A to Z Challenge, The Caretaker of Imagination

For the April A-Z blogging challenge, I’ll be blogging about my latest release, The Caretaker of Imagination.

My humour is sort of along the dad-jokes line, though I don’t often like to admit it! When writing The Caretaker of Imagination, I often laughed at my own jokes (something else I don’t like to admit) and wondered if anyone else would find it funny. But where does this humour come from?

In the early stages of drafting this book, I was reading Douglas Adams. I think, because that’s what I was reading, some of his humour leaked into my work (not that I’m complaining!) but it might be where the ‘deadpan’ humour toneΒ came from.

I’d also recently finished re-reading the first few books in Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events where humour is understated, dry and a little bit dark.

And then, of course, there’s my actual dad, who’s jokes are as dry as cat kibble.

What sort of humour do you like?

    1. I hadn’t thought about it much before writing this post, but humour really is important to me in a book! Whether that be quirky, dry, or satirical. Love the laugh out loud ones best!!
