 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?

Cozy author Ellen Byerrum writes the wacky Crime of Fashion mystery series and has taken the time to share a few Halloween moments with us, so before you grab a copy of Shot Through Velvet and your favorite sweet grub, let’s chat with Ellen. 

Favorite Halloween candy?

Milkyway, Butterfinger, and just about anything chocolate.

What will you be for Halloween this year?

I will be sitting on the sofa waiting for trick or treaters and watching the Disney version of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.

Trick or treat?

Treat.

Worst Halloween costume as a kid?

No idea.

Most memorable Halloween memory?

The year I got a Drum Majorette costume handed down. Red, white, and blue satin, it was awesome. Also one year in Catholic school we dressed as our patron saints. Mine is a queen. So again, pretty awesome.

Worst Halloween film you still watch… and love?

If it’s the worst, I would never watch it. But one I love: Arsenic and Old Lace, the Cary Grant version, which is set on Halloween.   

Hitchcock or blood and gore?

Definitely the psychologically scary films, though not necessarily Hitchcock.

Favorite scary movie?

Hmmm? Don’t really know. But I like Tim Burton’s The Corpse Bride and Disney’s The Legend of Sleepy Hollow (because The Headless Horseman still sends shivers through me and I like the score.)

Do you still watch The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown?

Nope. Sorry.
