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 Jen Nadol writes a spooky Young Adult paranormal series and has taken the time to share a few Halloween moments with us, so before you grab a copy of The Mark or The Vision and your favorite sweet treats, let’s dish with Jen.
Favorite Halloween candy?
Kit Kat or Twix. Or both.
What will you be for Halloween this year?
I WAS going to be a vampire (I know, not clever at all. But easy.) But we got snowed out of the party we were supposed to dress up for Saturday night so I’m just going to wear the fangs all day Monday.
Trick or treat?
Treat, of course!
Worst Halloween costume as a kid?
An upside down man. I think it was my mom’s idea. I had my legs in shirt sleeves and my arms in pant legs, shoes on my hands and a head made out of a paper bag attached to the shirt collar (hanging upside-down). It was very clever, but I had to keep my arms up in the air the whole time for it to look right. Which was fun for about two minutes.
Most memorable Halloween memory?
Trick or treating in the rain with my kids the year before last. We were all drenched, but they had a blast.
Worst Halloween film you still watch… and love?
I’m a wimp – I never watch gross or scary movies!
Hitchcock or blood and gore?
Hitchcock – I WAY prefer psychological creepiness to innards.
Favorite scary movie?
The Ring is the scariest I’ve ever seen. I’d never, ever watch it again. Does that make it a favorite?
Do you still watch The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown?
Sadly, I couldn’t tell you the last time I saw it.
