Happy Halloween


Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there,

wondering, fearing, doubting,

dreaming dreams no mortal

ever dared to dream before.

~ Edgar Allen Poe’s The Raven (1844)


Happy Halloween Everyone

This is one of my favorite times of the year. A day to revisit childhood fears, dress in outrageously scary costumes, watch a couple of horror flicks, read a scary book,  drink Witches Blood with devilish sweets, and fear in my heart.Image result for gifs of Edgar Allan Poe movies with vincent price

What will you be watching this Halloween? These are a few of my favorites, but the list could go on forever.

Halloween 2019

I’m dying to check out this new Asian flick, Kuntilanak 2.

If you’re looking for a short supernatural read, check out my book RAVINE LEREUX available at Amazon.com.

Book Cover Ravine Lereux Darker

Olivia and Edward Lereux live a quiet life with their chocolate Border collie, Axel in a picturesque cottage flanked by Maine’s blustery cliffs, far from town and people. Outwardly, their lives appear normal, but they’re not ordinary people. The Lereux family is cursed with something that has claimed their ancestors for many years.

When Ravine Lereux receives a distressing letter from her Uncle Edward, she must return to a place she swore never to return, a place that’s haunted by something, an abnormal presence she feared as a child. Now she must face it again. As she races to the aid of her aunt and uncle, she makes an unsettling discovery about herself and her family.

Have a Bloody Wonderful Halloween!!

  1. Hey Denise,
    Great post. Love the drink recipe. If it wasn’t 30 miles to the nearest liquor store…and snowing, I would definitely be going after some cherry schnapps & soda!. Do you mind if I share your recipe and post?

      2. Happy Halloween! I loved “Ravine Lereux”! I left a short review, but I’m sorry to have misspelled your last name! I’m blaming autocorrect. I was unable to correct the error.
