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 Laura DiSilverio, who writes the delightful Mall Cop mystery series for Berkley Prime Crime, Swift Justice, and next month’s Swift Edge for Minotaur, and under the pseudonyms Lila Dare and Ella Barrick for Penguin Group (USA), has taken the time to share a few Halloween moments with us. So before you grab a copy of Die Buying or Swift Justice and your favorite treats, let’s chomp and chat with Laura.
Favorite Halloween candy?
What will you be for Halloween this year?
The person at home handing out the candy. My husband goes trick-or-treating with the girls. It’s usually bitterly cold (although it doesn’t look like it will be this year) so I’m happy to stay home and admire the little princesses and pirates and zombies who come by.
Worst Halloween costume as a kid?
Huck Finn. I thought it was so clever, but everyone thought I was a boy (I was 8 or 9) and didn’t see anything clever in it at all.
Most memorable Halloween memory?
Pumpkin carving with my dad and now with my girls.
Worst Halloween film you still watch… and love?
I don’t watch them anymore. I don’t like to scare myself… boring, I know.
Hitchcock or blood and gore?
Do you still watch The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown?
Nope (although the Grinch is still a Christmas tradition).
