October is the time for Ghost Stories!

As Halloween approaches, I get the uncanny urge to reach for ghost stories.  Yes, I'm a Halloween freak.  I love dressing up in costumes and setting up a haunted house.

Every Halloween for as long as I can remember, my family would transform my front lawn into a cemetery, complete with gravestones and massive spider webs, skeletons, bats and ghouls.  I would dress up in my witch costume and stir a cauldron with fog billowing out.  One of the fake ghouls lying about was actually my son dressed up similar to the others, except when someone walked by he would move slightly or reach out toward them, scaring the daylights out of the unsuspecting kid, causing him or her to tear off running down the street to get away.  I would hand out candy to the little ones and hand a dead long stemmed black rose to the mom's walking along holding their toddler's hands.  Of course we had spooky music playing in the background, blaring out into the street, just to set the mood.

So, since I'm getting into that Halloween "spirit", the next few book reviews will more than likely be ghost or witch related.

Happy haunting!
