Here's a little bit about me: I live right outside of Chicago with my family and our 4 dogs and 3 cats.  Halloween is (of course) my favorite holiday!  The Halloween Spectacle is the first book I've written.

 

Just like Jake, I had a few disastrous Halloween experiences when I was growing up.  One rainy Halloween I used a big paper trick-or-treat bag that I dragged along the sidewalk. I didn't notice that the bottom had totally disintegrated until

I was almost back home and discovered that all my candy had fallen out!  Another Halloween I dressed up as a mermaid and someone accidentally stepped on my long fish-tail, causing it to snap off.  And that doesn't count all the chilly Halloweens (I grew up in Michigan) where my mom made me wear a coat over my costume, so that no one could even see what I was wearing.

 

Now I always dress up as a witch on Halloween, and my tall pointed hat scares my dogs.   You'd like to tell me about your Halloween costume, click on the contact button to send me an e-mail.  I'd love to hear from you!
