Halloween Picks from the Nerdy Chicks

It’s Halloween season, and I’d been planning to share some great Halloween books with you guys today. Surprisingly, both of the books I’d selected were written by the same author…hmmm….

I was originally going to talk about how inspiring Halloween can be to authors, but because today is actually also my son’s birthday, I’m going to focus on his story (and Quackenstein’s).

As you can guess, I got the idea for QUACKENSTEIN HATCHES A FAMILY when I was expecting my third child and my only son, Sawyer. I’d already had two daughters, who had been my companions and playthings since birth. I was totally convinced I was going to have another girl – when the doctor told me I was having a boy.

Now meet Quackenstein.

ImageQuackenstein is desperate to have a family, but as the zoo’s only duck, he doesn’t have an easy way to lay an egg of his own. So he comes up with a plan – he will adopt an egg. Except that the egg that he adopts…well, let’s just say it wasn’t what he expected.

 And like Quackenstein, what I got wasn’t what I expected.

I hope you’ll check out QUACKENSTEIN HATCHES A FAMILY this Halloween – and HAMPIRE, too!
