Q: What are some of your favorite ghost shows/movies?
A: When I first started writing my Ghost Hunter Mysteries I was completely addicted to The Travel Channel's Most Haunted. I looooved that show, and I'm so bummed it's no longer available. It had all the elements you'd love in a good ghost show, spooky locations throughout Europe, a rather eccentric psychic medium, perpetually scared crew and loads of creepy stuff happening on screen. The fact that everyone was also British just made it all the more delightful!
Sadly, that show either got cancelled or the Travel Channel doesn't show it anymore, and I just haven't found anything quite as good as a substitute.
Q: Looking back, do you think if you were to follow your 7th grade career aptitude test and became a government spy, would have been as a influential to your working in the physic world?
A: Ha! Great question! And my answer is, that I sincerely don't know. I'm leaning toward the two having no relation whatsoever, however, I've always been able to read people, and spot any hidden agenda, which is what likely attributed to my scoring so well in that category. I think, though, that if I had followed that career path, I would have looooved being a spy. The intrigue, the danger, the adrenaline rush...who could pass that up? :)
Q: It’s the wrong time of the year, but do you celebrate Halloween? If so, do you go all out with decorations and props?
A: Oh, I ADORE Halloween! I haven't gone all out in years, it seems there is always something pulling at my schedule right around the end of October, but next year I plan to do something awesome like visit one of the local haunted fire stations here in Austin and hunt for spooks. I've heard that at this particular station, the firefighters have heard bare feet running across the floorboards, and one or two firemen claim that some disembodied ghost climbed into bed with them and cuddled up!!!
A: Hmmm....I wish I knew!!! I haven't been to the movies in ages and ages! I keep swearing I'm gong to get out and see The King's Speech, (Colin Firth you gorgeous man you!) but there's so much on the plate right now that he may have to wait a bit. If you hear of any, though, please pass them on!
[edit to add: Mr. Darcy is that you? ;)]
