Headless Dummy Spooked Someone
- For Halloween one year my sister and I created a scarecrow looking dummy by stuffing some of our dad's clothing with corn husks and We anchored it with some rope onto the rain gutter near the front porch. Our mom told us about a police officer stopping by the house while we were at school the next day. A woman had reported a hanging. Oh my, that woman must have had very bad eyesight because our scarecrow didn't even have a head. Both the officer and my mother got a good laugh about it and we got to keep our scary "headless" scarecrow in place.

- We always do Halloween at my house. The year my son was born we dressed up like always, and put him in his little dragon costume and took pictures. I accidentally posted this picture in the online gallery that I used to post only select pictures for my co-workers to see my baby. My co-workers had a field day over my husband and me in our wigs and costumes. Whoops!

- At Halloween, my NY suburban town looks like a Hollywood set. One year, as we took the kids trick or treating, we turned a corner and found a neighbor riding a tractor, offering free rides to everyone. The moon was full, the streets were filled with adorable children in costumes, and the night was just magical.

Filming at the Haunted Bridge
- We finally filmed the last scene at the bridge and it went great. The police officer, who directed traffic, said the bridge is the scariest place in the entire county. Especially around this time of year. definitely gives you a chill, at night.

First Trick or Treating With Kids
- I avoided the beg for candy until my daughter was 4 -- and then only gave in because my sister wanted to take her 5 month old son. But it was really adorable to see my 4 year old and 2 year old get so excited about getting treats from the neighbors. They wanted to take a picture at every house we stopped at. And my daughter, afterward could tell you exactly who gave her what. My 5 month old nephew slept the whole time BTW.

The Ghost of Governor's Bridge
- The urban legend of the Ghost of Governor's Bridge was the only urban legend, documented, that could NOT be proved false. That is the reason I chose it to be my new novel, which has been released. The movie trailer, for the book, will be out very soon.
