Halloween Quiz

When Shelley asked for authors to do Halloween-type posts for October, I thought, “Why haven’t the Sleuth Sisters ever done anything with Halloween?” In four books, (working on #5) they haven’t, but I can imagine it.

Barb would go around town putting apostrophes in all the signs to make the word “correct”: Hallowe’en.

Faye would make enough yummy treats to rot the baby teeth of every Trick-or-Treater in Allport.

Retta would create costumes for the three of them. She’d be Wonder Woman, Barb would be Storm, and Faye would be Jayna, the Wonder Twin who can turn into any animal.

It makes sense: I mean, there’s a long tradition of threes at Halloween time, especially witches, like Macbeth, Hocus Pocus, The Witches of Eastwick, and dozens of songs on YouTube. But my sleuths aren’t supernatural in any way. They’re simply sisters who solve crimes using their individual strengths and strong family relationship. Though they don’t see life the same way at all, when danger threatens, they come together, sometimes in funny ways, sometimes in ways that warm your heart just a little. My readers often identify with that: while we don’t choose our sisters and often don’t agree with them, we step up when things get tough. It’s Sister Power!

Since the Sleuth Sisters haven’t focused on Halloween (yet), I came up with a little quiz based on horror/supernatural stories that you might enjoy. Find the answers in the grid horizontally, vertically, diagonally, backward and forward. (Hey, I never said I’d make it easy!)

  1. I enjoyed this posting as I have not read anything in this series yet and think I should now that I know more about it. I am doing more and more books on CD due to vision problems. What a fun interview today.
