It's pouring. My early Halloween memories involve trick or treating in a Florida drizzle. The weatherwoman vows the rain will clear by this evening. I imagine young students staring out school windows, fretting over that rain, the costumes they can't wait to wear and the sweets they'll gather in their bags. My thoughts are with children in the northeast where a massive snow storm just smothered fall decorations and clogged roads. Will they stretch their costumes over snowsuits and carry on?
Some of my neighbors outdid themselves decorating. Here's a few photos for your enjoyment.
I write middle grade and young adult books with a magical twist. And creatures, always creatures. I'm represented by the fabulous Leslie Zampetti of Dunham Lit.
