As the townsfolk sleep, something creeps into the neighborhood. Hidden in shadows, its presence is as old as time itself, its intent not born of goodness.

Nick, a teenager who fancies himself a detective, wakes to find his carved masterpiece missing. Now a mystery is afoot, and Nick has his first assignment, to find out who or what is snatching up the town’s pumpkins and why.

Unfortunately, as with all great detectives, obstacles stand in Nick’s way—the neighborhood bully and his cronies, and the strange old lady and her dog who share the run-down house at the end of Nick’s block. As Nick investigates, an urban legend unravels . . . .

The Legend of The Pumpkin Thief.

Nick fears the legend as he embarks on the most dangerous adventure of his young life. Collecting clues, getting ever closer to the true nature of evil, he learns that curiosity comes with a high price.

Chapter-by-Chapter-header---Interview

Thanks so much for taking the time and spending time with us here at Chapter by Chapter!

Thank you so much for having me. Truly grateful to be a part of this.

 

 

Describe your book in 140 characters or less (like a Tweet)

Get ready to go on a Halloween thrill ride, full of mystery, chills, and fun.

 

 

What was your inspiration for writing this book?  Was it in a dream? A thought while taking a walk?

My inspiration for writing this book was to relive the memories I had as a kid on many Halloween nights growing up with friends in my neighborhood.

 

 

Tell us about the main character(s).

Nick is so like me. Adventurous, a kid who likes to take chances, and loves to read comics and mystery books.

 

 

Do you have a favorite quote or specific part in the book that you really love?

Oh yeah. My favorite part in the book is when we first get to meet the evil old lady down the street, Mrs. Needlwhitter and her evil dog.

 

 

Was there a specific part in the book that you had an especially difficult time writing?  If so, why?

Not really. Most of the story came easy, since I went through much of the bullying by the older kids, the Halloween pranks. The only thing that really was a challenge for me was creating the scary Pumpkin thief because he was not chasing me in around when I was a kid. Thank God!

 

 

What sort of projects do you have going on right now.  Any new books coming out?

I’m working an outline on the sequel. I really want to bring back many of the characters and have them deal with some unfinished business.

 

 

It was great having you on the blog today!  We hope you’ll decide to stop by again someday, and we wish you much success!!

Thank you. I enjoyed the interview, and really hope my story will be as much fun to those who read it as it was for me to write about my youth and of course the evil Halloween legend you’re about to meet.
