Getting into spirit

I’m getting into the Halloween spirit with 100 Monsters all around me. 
A few of my favorites are hanging at the office, frightening all who pass by. Luckily, there’s no need to be afraid of these adorable monsters, reimagined from classical world mythology.

You can catch all of the monsters in my downloadable book, 100 Monsters but I am Not Afraid. All copies include a Monstrous Encyclopedia with details on each creature.

On the Seventh Night of Halloween

Seventh Night

 

On the seventh night of Halloween my mom-ster scared me with seven trolls-a-trampling… six ghosts-a-haunting, Five Vampire Bats! four grinning pumpkins, three grunting goblins, two black cats and a skull for our skeleton tree.

On the thirteenth night of Halloween my mom-ster frightened me with thirteen dancing devils...

I’m counting down The Thirteen Nights of Halloween with my new, fully illustrated children’s book. I hope you’ll join me and add a little Booooooooooooo! to your books!

Happy Halloween!

5 Vampire bats

On the fifth night of Halloween my mom-ster frightened me with FIVE VAMPIRE BATS… four grinning pumpkins, three grunting goblins, two black cats and a skull for our skeleton tree.

I love this verse because you get to be dramatic or shout out Five Vampire Bats – just like in the carol where you hold out the “five golden rings.” I like to say this verse with spooky voices. The pets just look at me like I’m crazy.
