A Nightmare before Christmas? Well, actually I had a Dream Come True before Christmas. My novel, Flirting with Fangs was published! And Santa himself couldn’t have brought me a better present!
So, though it is the season to be jolly, I want to give a shout out to my favorite holiday, Halloween. And explain why I chose it as the setting for my paranormal comedy.
I work for Halloween Express…told ya it was my favorite holiday..and each season I watch a little boy instantly become Iron Man, while his mom transforms into a Greek Goddess, or Cat Woman, or a sexy zombie prom queen. Yes. Zombies are still a big trend (How am I to survive till February for a new Walking Dead?!) Anyhooo…Their eyes brighten as they grin into the mirror. For one magical night, filled with spooky revelry, laughter and screams, and of course, bags of candy, we can be anyone, or anything, we want to be! We get to Make-Believe!
In Flirting with Fangs, Torin Kane, my fictional vampire hero, is summoned into reality by his author, Bailey Hamilton. As I pondered the setting for the story it hit me. Halloween! What better season for a vampire to show up in downtown Boston? That idea spun my creative juices into overdrive. Writing and finishing a book is not easy for me, but with my favorite holiday as my muse, a time of magic, mayhem and menace, it went pretty smooth.
Don’t get me wrong. I love Christmas. Especially if you invite me over for a slice of O & H Pecan Kringle. It’s a time for friends and family. So trim the tree, have an Egg Nog or two! But months from now, when crimson and gold leaves swirl in the autumn wind, and pumpkins appear in every storefront, remember my muse, my Halloween and Make Believe!

Flirting with Fangs
Vampire romance novelist Bailey Hamilton thinks her life is over. Her two-timing husband dumped her, she has a paralyzing case of writers’ block, and her big toe is bleeding.
Torin Kane, fictional Vampire Hero, is miserable. Chapter after chapter he has battled dragons, demons, and despicable villains, but his secret desire is to find true love and a tan.
With a twist of fate, their worlds collide. A magical teardrop summons Torin to life. And Bailey finds herself face to face, with quite literally, the man of her dreams….
