Author Interview

What was your motivation behind Hall-O-Ween!? Why did you want to write it?

“Hall-O-Ween!” was a follow-up to my other books, “Two!” and “Three!”, which were somewhat autobiographical accounts of life with my twin toddler boys. With those, I wanted to make something for my kiddos to read and hold onto, but they also were a way for me to commemorate their milestones (as crazy as those times were). For “Hall-O-Ween!”, I wanted to continue the series, but also weave in some of my memories and fantasies of Halloween as a kid. Halloween was always one of my favorite times growing up. My dad was always helping my brothers to decorate the front yard (in competition with one of the neighbors) and my mom would help us make our costumes. I wanted to bring all of that excitement to life in my book.

What do you hope readers take with them after they’ve read it?

I want to bring that same sort of joy and excitement that I've always gotten from Halloween to anyone who reads this.

Do you have a favorite picture book to read with your kids?

I have so many. I loved reading my kids all of the “Elephant and Piggie” books and, of course, “Room on the Broom.”

If you could sum the book up in one sentence, what would you say? 

"Hall-O-Ween!" is a spooky little rhyming book about all the sweet bites and fun frights on Halloween day and night.

Share something about you that is unique - maybe about how/where you write... or favorite snack foods?

I like to write my books by hand first - on napkins, notebooks, index cards – whenever the inspiration strikes. For all of my books, I've done the majority of my writing and illustrating while sipping an iced tea and eating a chocolate chip cookie at the Wildflower Bread Company. They know me well at Wildflower, and I've done all my book launches there.
