Special Halloween Interview with Author Elizabeth Sharp




1.   What’s the scariest thing you’ve ever heard/read/seen? It can be from a book, movie, or from the campfire at night…

The Conjuring

2.   Who would you like to bring back as a zombie? Why?

I don't think I want to bring any zombies to life. I'll pass on starting the apocalypse, thanks.

3.   What is your favorite thing about Halloween?

It's the one day a year you can be anyone or anything. Reality isn't an obstacle.

I liked my Cleopatra, which was completely homemade with a gold beaded collar and headdress.

5.   Is there an author out there that you’re pretty sure is a witch? Tell us who and why you think so!

Jasinda Wilder because magic has to be involved for one person to possess that much awesome.

Thank you, Elizabeth!!!



How to find Elizabeth:


Bio:
Elizabeth has a near crippling Facebook addiction, dwarfed only by her need for Dr. Pepper. A self-proclaimed techno geek, she loves cell phones, computers, tablets and all things technological. The internet has to be the greatest invention since the wheel, in her opinion. She lives in a quiet subdivision with her husband, one-year-old son, three cats, and far too many electronics. It’s quite possible she has some raccoon in her DNA, because she loves glitter and anything that sparkles. She enjoys making jewelry and costumes. Halloween is her favorite holiday since it’s the one day of the year that you can be whatever you want. But her first love will always be writing. Otherwise, hearing voices in her head would make her feel schizophrenic.

Special Halloween Interview with Author C.J. Pinard



1.   What’s the scariest thing you’ve ever heard/read/seen? It can be from a book, movie, or from the campfire at night…

A few of Stephen King's novels have scared me silly, but a short story called "Serial" by Jack Kilborn and Blake Crouch scared the living crap out of me!

I also may or may not still be slightly traumatized by A Nightmare on Elm Street when I was young and snuck and watched it without my mom's permission.


2.   Who would you like to bring back as a zombie? Why?

Robin Williams! There's nothing better than humorous horror.

3.   What is your favorite thing about Halloween?

All the fun horror movie marathons on TV and the magic in the air the night of Halloween night.

4.   What was your best Halloween costume?

I dressed as Elvira one year. I had to duct tape my boobs together.

5.   Is there an author out there that you’re pretty sure is a witch? Tell us who and why you think so!

Definitely Cassandra Clare, because she put me under a spell with all her wonderful books :)

Thank you, C.J.!!!



How to find C.J.:



Bio:
C.J. is a west coast native who has lived on both coasts and now lives near the middle, in Colorado! Coming from a family of writers and editors, she feels writing is in her blood and hopes people will lose themselves for a little while in the fantasy and fun of her stories. She also loves sweet red wine, the SF 49ers, and unlike most authors, doesn't have any cats. When she's not writing, she can be found chasing around her kids or working at her day job, which she totally feels interferes with her real life, but also sometimes gives her inspiration for her books, since reality is sometimes way more interesting than fiction.



My newest release, "Boots Beneath My Bed (Miranda's Story) is available! 

Amazon 

Blurb:
Miranda Cates finally graduates from college and is excited to begin her dream career in law enforcement. After the final betrayal and heartbreak of her college boyfriend, Chris, she moves back home with a firm plan in place for her life.


However, the life she has carefully mapped out for herself takes a serious left turn. Miranda finds she not only has to be strong for herself, but for the daughter who hadn’t been part of her plan.



Determined to still believe in true love, life throws Miranda one more wicked curveball. She meets Jace Lawless, a hot minor league baseball player, whose warm aqua eyes and big dimple have her unraveling her carefully laid plans. A man who may be just be too good to be true.



Boots Beneath My Bed (Miranda's Story) is book 3 in the Duty & Desire series, and while it is recommended to read the books in order, it's not necessary.

Special Halloween Interview with Author Amanda Troyer




1.   What’s the scariest thing you’ve ever heard/read/seen? It can be from a book, movie, or from the campfire at night…

I'm a visual person. Even though I've read some things that have scared me, I'm more bothered by movies. When I saw the ring for the first time in high school, I was terrified. It scared the crap out of me and I had my friend stay over that night because I was such a wuss. Well, on the way out to the car after the movie I got a phone call, but no one answered. Dead air. I know that's not how it goes in the movie, but it was still unnerving. Then the next morning I woke up with my first, EVER, bloody nose. I thought I was for real going to die.

2.   Who would you like to bring back as a zombie? Why?

No one! Zombies are mindless (well, except for the Warm Bodies ones) brain eaters! I wouldn't want anyone I know... wait.. maybe someone I don't like could come back as a zombie then I could shoot them in the head. ;) Just kidding, I wouldn't want to deal with zombies ever.

3.   What is your favorite thing about Halloween?

Probably the fact that, if I wanted, I could dress up really slutty and not be too ridiculed for it. That's what women do for Halloween, right? Just playing into stereotypes here. Also, Skittles. Can't handle the Skittles. I'd eat them until I threw up.

4.   What was your best Halloween costume?

In high school, me, my friend, and her friend decided to be Daria, Jane, and Trent. My Jane outfit was AMAZING. I had the boots, the shirts, the shorts... it was so good. But being a teenager, something caused drama and I opted out of going all together. I'm sad that I 1) don't have a picture from that night, 2) have no fun memories of dressing up with my friends because I was being a punk.

5.   Is there an author out there that you’re pretty sure is a witch? Tell us who and why you think so!

A witch? I'm not sure that I would claim anyone was a witch since I don't know too many authors so I don't want to randomly pick someone. Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to be a witch... I'd definitely want to be a Harry Potter witch... not a Vampire Diaries or Once Upon a Time witch. I'd be BFFs with Luna, no question.

Wait, what was the question? ;)

Thank you, Amanda!!!

Special Halloween Interview with Author Vicki Green




1.   What’s the scariest thing you’ve ever heard/read/seen? It can be from a book, movie, or from the campfire at night…

I really can't name just one thing but anything that jumps out at me, or on a screen, scares me to death. Also the movie The Innocents. It's an old black and white movie. Very scary.

2.   Who would you like to bring back as a zombie? Why?

Yes, only if I can be like that one in the movie that comes back to being a human after finding their love. :)

3.   What is your favorite thing about Halloween?

I love seeing all the trick or treaters, especially the little ones.

4.   What was your best Halloween costume?

lol Too long ago for me to remember.

5.   Is there an author out there that you’re pretty sure is a witch? Tell us who and why you think so!

lmao! Since I'm an author and have tons of Author friends, no comment. :)

Thank you, Vicki!!!
