Oh and my favorite spooky movie… Oooh, that’s hard because I like a whole bunch of them. I can share some memories, though. When I was younger, I was creeped out by a couple of spooky movies. Granted, I was babysitting both times so that probably didn’t help. On top of that, I was a pre-teen. The first time was when I was watching When a Stranger Calls. Yes, while babysitting…downstairs in the rec room while the kids were upstairs sleeping. The second movie was The Omen 2. It was fall. It was dark out. The family was moving from one house to another in town. I was helping to watch the kids while the parents went back and forth between the homes. Front door’s wide open and I’m watching a movie with a talking crow. Yeah, I was a little freaked out. As a teen, another film that had me a little on edge was Prince of Darkness. Since then, I’ve yet to see a scary movie that’s unsettled me. If you have any movie suggestions or want to share your favorite spooky movie memory, feel free to leave a comment. I’d love to hear it. Thanks for popping in today. Enjoy all the wonderful stops on the tour!

Check it out! The Fall Into Romance #BlogHop #HerdingCats


Fall Into Romance! Share the romances that had you falling in love with the genre! Or the ones that keep you smitten! Stop by each blog for new recommendations and giveaways!

Some of my formative years found me growing up in a rural section of New Jersey, back when farms were the norm and the word Condo referred to a place in the city. There were very few kids around and little to do. I read and wrote stories to entertain myself. The first place I lived in was nestled between a river and a farm, and the stories I created back then were fairy tale in nature – the great prince coming to rescue his love. I loved the story of Sleeping Beauty and Beauty and the Beast as a child. As an adult, I still love the story of Sleeping Beauty but it’s the one by Anne Rice now. 😉 When I was a bit older, we moved to a dead end street, again with no kids my age around and a river at the end of the road. The stories morphed into romantic adventure tales. In my teens, I went to what I call the dark side, and was like, “Romance? What’s that? Horror baby all the way.” I wrote horror into my adult years (and still do) and didn’t go back to romance till a friend turned me on to A Knight In Shining Armor by Jude Devereaux. It was then that I fell in love with romance stories — most specifically time travel romance. My shelves are filled with those kind of stories. I’m still an ecclectric reader, and writer if I’m honest since I don’t like to stick to a particular genre, but when I think of romances and want to read one, I normally reach for a good time travel. A bit of history, a bit of science, a bit of adventure, characters from different times trying to find their way in the world and with each other, how can one go wrong with those kind of stories?
You’ll notice that I have a variety of stories available, including time travel romance. 🙂 Find links to my pen names under ‘Author’ in the menu at the top of the site. My blog hop prize for one lucky winner will be one of my stories in e-book format. To have a chance to win, leave a comment below.
