Yay, a fellow Class of '85 is dropping by - Welcome, Stacy Dawn!

Wow, this is cool—it’s the closest I’ve ever come to visiting England! Thank you so much for the inviting me overseas Rachel.

You are so welcome! It's funny you are thrilled by the idea of England as my family and I are planning when we can afford a trip to your wonderful homeland of Canada! Whereabouts are you? We are planning a three week trip at some time in the future so we can travel around and see as much as possible. Any tips would be great!

Anyway, over to you!

Being so close to the days of ghouls and goblins and things that flap in the night, I thought it would be fun to talk about my paranormal story as well as my newest release—although, I might be able to tie that in with Halloween too if given a few minutes LOL.

Let’s start with the dark and mysterious creatures of the paranormal world. I had wanted to write a story that didn’t scream VAMPIRE, but instead dug deeper to the humanity left behind.

Shadows of Moonlight is still one of my favourites because it is a haunting story of love…and fearing to love. It came to me as one of those half-dream thoughts that just kept developing with the ‘what if’ questions….what if there really were soul-mates….that love didn’t really die when the graveside was deserted? What if an immortal came across his one true love over and over again—at different ages, different times and at what point would it kill him to know that they would only die and leave him again…especially when he may have been the cause of their deaths…

Over the centuries, Rick Shayne has loved and lost the same woman four times. Her reappearance only deepens his guilt and he refuses to risk her life or his heart again.

Liz Greyson isn't about to let him off that easy, but will her secret be his saving grace or cast him back into the shadows of moonlight forever.

As for my newest release, I am proud to be with Rachel among the authors of the Wild Rose Press’s Class of ’85 series; my short story, Corvette Confessions, came out just last month.

Have you ever been in the right place at the wrong time?

Dumped at the senior spring dance, AJ, who’d always been more into softball and shop class than cheerleading and pep squad, escaped the crowd to mope in the Corvette on loan to the class for the semester. When Greg Roberts unexpectedly joined her, his attempts to cheer her worked—too well. She might have even confessed her love that night if Greg’s longtime girlfriend hadn’t come looking for him.

Twenty-five hard years later, forced to come to the reunion by her best friend, AJ escapes back to her favorite class, only to find the exact Corvette—a little worn and faded—sitting right where she’d left it. Fond memories turn into reality when Greg shows up at her driver’s side window again—and déjà vu takes on a whole new meaning.

Now, you ask how this could tie into Halloween? Well, it sort of starts out by dressing up in costume….of the ‘80’s for the reunion dance at the high school. OMG writing that just made me feel old. No, I graduated after ’85 but I still lived through the eighties and suddenly feel old when I think people are using that era for Halloween costumes LOL.

But for this story, it’s what happens after A.J. leaves the synthesiser music behind in the gym that’s important.

I’m sure there’s been a time in everyone’s life when you wanted a do-over, or to know what a certain someone might be or might be doing today. But—and here comes my favourite ‘what if’s’ again—what if, unlike all the other ‘one night stand’ stories, nothing happened that long ago night—and that interrupted nothing affected the rest of your life in so many ways you never knew until one reunion when you found out that nothing was really the best something that ever happened to you?

Confused? You won’t be when you read, Corvette Confessions. I’m thrilled to say it’s been getting great reviews and you can read more of them at here: http://stacydawnebooks.blogspot.com/2010/09/corvette-confessions.html

And for my other books and some fun, please come back across the ocean to the Great White North of Canada and visit my website at www.stacydawn.com.

I’ve had fun talking with you all and hope you have a frighteningly wonderful Halloween in a few days!!
