Happy Halloween! If you haven't figured out already, I'm a big fan of this holiday -- in fact I think it's safe to say that Halloween is my favorite day out of the entire year. There is just something magical about it that takes me back to being a kid. I loved dressing up in costume, carving pumpkins into Jack-o'-lanterns, and going trick or treating, and the costume parade and party we always had at school just made the day that much more fun. I try really hard to recapture that feeling in my books, because it was such an important part of my own childhood, some of the happiest times I had.
If you haven't already, it's not too late to pick up (or download) a copy of my children's Halloween stories on Kindle. Reading together is a great way to wind down before bedtime, after your little ones are all tuckered out (or perhaps still hyped up) from trick or treating.
I wish you all a happy, safe, and above all else magical Halloween.
