Name the book that gave you the creeps the most.

 The Shining by Stephen King. This might be an unpopular opinion, but the movie does not do that book justice.

Favourite Halloween memory?

 I won a costume contest when I was about 8 or 9. I was the Wicked Witch of the West. I had a hairy mole and everything. It was fabulous!

CASTLE OF SIGHS (Sequel to FOREST OF WHISPERS)

Digital Release Date: October 27, 2015

Young Adult Fiction – Historical Fantasy

Publisher: Spencer Hill Press

Book Summary:

Some secrets cannot be kept–in life or in death.

Months have passed since Rune has heard a single whisper from her long-dead mother, the great witch of Bavaria. But the absence of one evil has only made room for another. After rightfully inheriting her ancestral home, Pyrmont Castle, Rune settles into a quiet life taking care of two orphans left in the wake of the terrible witch hunt that claimed dozens of lives in the nearby village. As the days grow colder, the castle’s secrets beckon, and something darker seems to have been awakened, as well.

Rune finds herself roaming where no one has set foot in a long time. In the bowels of the fortress is a locked room full of memories that hang like cobwebs–shelves stacked with jars, strange specimens, putrid liquids, and scrolls of spells. Rune is undeniably drawn to what she finds there, and she begins to dabble in the possibilities of magic, hoping she will find a cure for the strangeness overwhelming the castle.

And the key may lie in the dark forest she once called home and the boy she thought she knew.

ADVANCED PRAISE FOR CASTLE OF SIGHS:

“A creepy, atmospheric ghost tale to be read with the lights on. Jennifer Murgia has done it again!”

       ~ Cyn Balog, author of FAIRY TALE and SLEEPLESS.

A castle filled with the ghosts of witches . . .

A Book of Secrets that holds the key to a terrible past . . .

A being made of Magick . . .

            In Castle of Sighs, the magnificent sequel to Forest of Whispers, author Jennifer Murgia leads us through a spooky, tangled web of mystery, mayhem, and magic both light and dark as we follow seventeenth century witch Rune in her exploration of the ancient Castle Pyrmont, the ancestral home that has shaped the extraordinary lives of the women in her family. Be prepared to sit up all night looking over your shoulder and jumping at every sound while this book, like its predecessor, casts its spell over you. Definitely a Must Read.

         ~ Molly Cochran, author of Legacy, Poison, and Seduction

HL Final Cover

High school sophomore Trisha Traynor and friends have played the Halloween mirror game for years, the one that’s supposed to show a glimpse of the guy they’ll marry. But no one’s ever seen anything.

Until tonight—when Trisha is gob smacked by the candlelit arrival of her long-deceased twin sister, instead of her crush, Kirk Maxwell.

In a voice and vision that only Trisha can hear and see, Chessie claims to be back on a compassionate journey. Trisha fears she’s gone nuthouse crazy. But she nonetheless follows the instructions Chessie outlines in their nightly conversations, until she finds herself stepping across some ethical lines, and probably ending all chances with Kirk.

When a sisterly showdown ensues, resulting in the shattering of the mirror, Chessie’s gone again, and a heartsick Trisha sets about righting her recent wrongs. That is, until she stumbles upon the real reason Chessie had come back and the most important glimpse yet that the mirror could never predict.

Believe it or not, I haven’t read that many horror books. But I did read “It” by Stephen King, and that was pretty creepy.

When I was a kid, I went trick-or-treating and this family turned their whole house into a haunted maze complete with fog machine. It was really cool!
