What kind of Halloween person are you? Dress up and party every year, give out candy maybe dressed up, or hide inside your house with the porch light off? I believe in extreme Halloween! Living in a 100+ year-old house, I get all the brave trick-or-treaters! The hubs likes to scare the crap out of the kiddies.
Are you a master pumpkin carver? I did a terrific devil a few years ago when I was an art teacher. Carving pumpkins is great fun, but what to do with all the pumpkin crap later? Such a waste. I can’t cook!
Name 3 costumes you’ve worn and at what age. I’ve been a witch (2 times), a devil, a zombie (last year), a gypsy, and sadly, a pink ballerina at age 8, before I hit my Goth phase.
Find a picture of a costume you love. Shout out to Game of Throne fans!!! This is the costume I would like to have (if I were that petite!)
Do you like haunted houses or mazes? I once took a ghost tour of a famous hotel. There was a spa in the lower level. With the lights out and with a leaky pipe dripping into a tub where someone drowned, it was very convincing. I also stayed in the famous Crescent Hotel before it was on TV, and you could FEEL the weirdness in that old place. It used to be a hospital with a morgue!
Do you believe in ghosts?I’ve never seen one personally, but my husband’s family lived in a house they believed was haunted. They’re all reasonably sane people, yet they’re convinced a strange woman visits their bedrooms late at night. They can feel her sitting on the beds, staring at them!
What is your favorite Halloween tradition? When my kids were little, we rented scary movies and ate popcorn while the trick-or-treaters made their rounds. Now that they’re grown, I miss those times very much.
What is your favorite Halloween movie to watch or are you a Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown sort? Charlie Brown, all the way!!
Have you ever tricked instead of treated like toilet papering someone’s house or egging a person or house? No, but being married to a former principal, we got all the tricks!
What’s your favorite Urban Legend? I love the old tales! The Welsh, whom I love to write about in my historical romances, have all sorts of strange tales about witches, Druids, magic, and legends. In my second time travel, MOONLIGHT MADNESS (coming in January 2013, The Wild Rose Press), the hero and heroine visit Llancaiach Fawr Manor, one of the most haunted places in that country. My favorite Welsh tale is about a couple who worked on the coast as wreckers, scavenging ships. They used a light to lure ships too near the rocks, then robbed the wreckage of the vessels. One day after sinking a ship, the husband found a body washed ashore, but the man was still alive and face down. He bashed the sailor’s head in with a rock, killing him, but when he turned him over to rob him, he discovered the sailor was none other than his beloved son.
Thanks for having me. I enjoyed your terrific questions! Have a Happy Halloween!
