It’s that time of year — the boo!, the costumes, the candy, the bump in the night, the candy, the parties, the candy. Did I mention the candy?
Author Janet Bolin, who writes the charismatic Threadville mystery series has taken the time to share a few Halloween moments with us, so before you grab a copy of Dire Threads and your favorite treat, let’s chat with Janet.
Favorite Halloween candy?
Candy corn, Snickers, Mars Bars.
What will you be for Halloween this year?
A curmudgeon. Oh, wait — it’s not a costume!
Trick or treat?
Treat. I love seeing the kids in their costumes. And snacking on whatever’s left.
Worst Halloween costume as a kid?
A Soviet satellite. My head was inside an aluminum foil ball, and I wore a sheet with hammers and sickles colored on it.
Most memorable Halloween memory
Nobody guessed who was inside that baked potato costume in second grade until I took the “butter” off my head! I won!
Worst Halloween film you still watch… and love?
I’d rather read a book. This year, it’s The Diva Haunts The House by Krista Davis.
Hitchcock or blood and gore?
Hitchcock, but even that’s a little too scary.
Favorite scary movie?
Scary movies are tooooooooo scary. I can’t watch them. But I can read and write murder mysteries. Don’t ask me to explain it.
Do you still watch The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown?
I’m afraid I’ve never seen it. Does that make me a bad person? Okay, forget it. Pretend I didn’t ask.
