Seems I write one spooky story a year specifically for Halloween.  I love Halloween!  Always have.  It started out as amber-tinged remembrances of magical Octobers when I was a small child.  It became about Disney's Fantasia, oddly enough, and there are still parts of that movie's soundtrack that I associate with this time of year, and always play - Beethoven's Pastoral Symphony for one.

"Boo" as Pooh, waiting for his first treating
Later it became about being on the giving end of the treat train as my young nephew Brandon entered the world of costumes, and the fashionably acceptable wearing of the color orange. "Aunt Dede" spent a delight-filled decade mimicking Brandon's Mom's waaaaay cool Halloween doorbell: "bong, BONG, bong-bong Mwwwwahahahahahaaa!"

Now, Halloween is about stories.  ALL about stories. On Halloween I will be doing two sessions in Second Life, and a special online live streaming of my own stories at Noon Pacific.

Ever been haunted by your own words?  What if you were haunted by them literally?  A woman is pursued by words she wrote over 30 years ago, and struggles with how to end being haunted by HER OWN WORDS.   

Love can hurt.  Especially if it is a sweet first romance.  But what hurts more is falling off a cliff.  Find out how a young Irish girl has an encounter with a legendary Irish haunt, and finds the strength to return to her life with a new perspective from IN THE MISTS. 

UPDATE! More Stories. . .
 By request, I will be reading selections from Bram Stoker's Classic DRACULA beginning at 5:30pm Pacific on Halloween!
