Posted on: October 27, 2018

Just in time for Halloween, I am part of Teri Polen´s Bad Moon Rising series. I hope you have your costume ready, candies bought and pumpkin carved. If not, That´s OK. Just have a pumpkin spiced latte, sit back and enjoy the post! Happy Halloween!!

Books and Such

Today’s guest is the author of a wonderful series of children’s books.  Readers call them ‘delightful armchair travel’ and a ‘fantastic adventure’.  As a bonus – they’re educational!  Amanda in New Mexico touches on the supernatural, and that’s the book Darlene Foster shares with us today.  She also tells a Ouija board story that will send tingles down your spine.  Welcome Darlene!

You’re in a horror movie.  Are you the final person, the first to die, the comic relief, the skeptic, the smart one, or the killer?

I would be the comic relief. I’m usually the first one to crack a joke when things are tense. This can be annoying to some people who think it is no laughing matter.

Have you ever played with a Ouija board?

My aunt and I played with one when we were children. I didn’t think anything of it at the time. I do…

You’re already writing book no.8? Wow! I like the sound of Amanda in Malta. I think I’d be too spooked to spend a night alone in a haunted house, too. If I was allowed to take someone with me I might cope but otherwise I don’t know if my nerves could take it. Happy Halloween!

I know my nerves couldn’t take it. I couldn’t even stay at a haunted hotel like the St. James Hotel in Cimarron, New Mexico. A visit during the day, with all the lights on, was the best I could do. I think I have too active an imagination! I know, how have I managed to write almost 8 books?? Thanks for your encouragement.

I used to love the Ouija Board. I’m off to read your post.

We had a lot of fun with it as kids. We didn’t take it very seriously. Perhaps we should have??

I’d never participate in a wigi board! I’d be too scared! xx

As kids, we didn’t think of it as scary. I probably would now!

I have now finished reading Amanda in New Mexico and, despite my age, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Like Amanda, I have always maintained that I don’t believe in ghosts, but a few occurrences of late have made me question my beliefs. Lovely read. Thank you.

This makes my heart sing! I am so glad you enjoyed the story and could relate. My books are really for all ages. Thank you so much. 💖

I am just a big child at heart! 😂

As a teenager had a few too many “really weird” things happen with a Ouija….not positive things…so hands off from that point on.
A few years back, I was part of a 2 day business conference on the Queen Mary docked in Long Beach, California. The room I had was a beautiful suite completely done in the original decor…during the middle of the night I woke up feeling something getting on the bed. My first reaction was either my wife or one of our dogs getting into bed (large dogs), when I realized where I was and that I was alone on this trip. Not a great feeling and I went into prayer mode pretty quickly. So, I’ll stay away from “haunted” anything….:)

Have a great weekend and congrats on the share!!

That is one spooky story, Kirt. Thanks for sharing. You never know who used to sleep in that room. I have been to the very same Queen Mary and it did feel like it held many stories. I stay away from anything haunted, at least during the night. Have a great weekend as well!!

Hadn’t thought about it, but this is a perfect Halloween read for tweens.

It is and not overly scary. I couldn´t read real scary books as a child so I didn´t want to give children nightmares with my book. Funny though, many kids like to be scared.

Wonderful! I loved the Ouija Board, too.

Thank you, Darlene. I enjoyed the post. I’d like to visit Malta, the country in your next book, one day. #seniorsalon

You would love Malta. I am enjoying revisiting this amazing place as I write Amanda’s adventures. So pleased to see you here. Thanks for visiting.
