1) Tell us about the stories you write/the story you have written for the event.
I write in several different genres, mostly dystopian and fantasy. However, I always love to blow up the whole world and keep everyone in danger as much as possible. It's so much more fun that way.
2) What do you plan on writing next?
My next series is a 5 part fantasy epic about a girl seeking vengeance against those who killed her family and stole her throne... with lots of magic and swords.
3) Do you believe in ghosts?
The logical part of my brain doesn't want me to, but I say I'm more hopeful that they exist. I don't think they'd be all bad or scary. And wouldn't it be nice to speak to your loved ones one more time?
4) What is your favorite thing about Halloween?
The ambiance. I love spooky noises and cobwebs and boiling cauldrons. It probably helps that my birthday is near Halloween, so it's always a special time for me. It seems you get away with naughtier things in October.
Back home, before we moved, we always participated in a haunted trail the weekend before Halloween. The kids loved it and when they got older, a couple of them were even allowed to help. It's become a family tradition. Every year we'd spend weeks helping build the haunt stations and gathering prizes for the games. It was a great bonding experience. Makes me want to build one in the woods behind my house now.
5) How do you spend your Halloween?
Now that the kids are older, I don't get to Trick or Treat as much. But I always dress up in something scary. I go more for the creepy vibe than gross horror, probably out of sheer laziness. And I know I'm the one who'd have to clean up the blood.
I dress up in my costume as soon as I wake up and stay in character all day. I love a good jump scare so my family knows to be wary all day as well.
