For the moment, I'm going to turn the mic over to Lillian - who was kind enough to bring a couple of guests...but don't go anywhere when the interview is over... there's plenty more to follow today!



Lillian smiles at Jacob and Jonathon Deveraux, the two Hollywood hunks currently sat on her sofa. The younger of the two winks at her as he slides his right foot up on to his left knee and relaxes back against the cushions. His equally delicious older brother checks his watch.

Trying to maintain some level of composure, Lillian reads her notes and clears her throat.

Lillian: Thank you both for coming.

Jonathon: The pleasure is all ours.

Lillian: I’ve read a bit about your background. Jacob, it seems you fell into acting but I get the impression it was more of a deliberate choice for you Jonathon.

Jacob chuckles: I didn’t know what I planned to do with my life and acting came along but Jonathon was born to perform. Although, we figured he was destined for the circus.

Jonathon frowns at him: Why don’t people take me seriously. I’m getting my shit together.

Lillian: I did read that after the unfortunate events in Rio you were looking to redefine yourself, Jonathon.

Jacob: You mean give up on women, amongst other things.

Jonathon: Hey I like girls and, fortunately, a lot of them like me. But, after seeing Jacob and Charlene acting like loves young dream I figured maybe I should give monogamy and true love a shot.

Lillian: And how is that going for you so far?

Jonathon: I’ve had a bit of a set back, but I’ve hired someone to take care of it for me.

Lillian: Take care of it?

Jacob: He’s hired a PI, Georgina Stanvers to look into an unfortunate incident.

Jonathon: Yeah, about that. You failed to mention George was a girl.

Jacob chuckles: I know.

Lillian: It’s nothing serious is it? I would hate for anything bad to happen to you.

Jonathon shrugs: Time will tell.

Lillian: I’ll keep my fingers crossed and watch this space then. So, Jacob, talking about true love, how is Charlene?

Jacob smiles enigmatically: Fine, perfect.

Lillian: But she couldn’t make it today. I hope she’s not ill.

Jonathon raises an eyebrow: Nothing that some time won’t fix, hey Jake.

Jacob glares at him: I prefer you don’t talk about my private life.

Jonathon grins: So, the whole wedding proposal story is out of bounds then?

Jacob gets to his feet and drags Jonathon off the couch: We really need to be going now. Thanks for having us.

The two men shake her hand and Jacob shoves Jonathon toward the exit grumbling, “I should never have told you about the proposal.”

Jonathon shrugs him off. “Charlene said don’t mention it on Letterman. Does this look like Letterman to you? Letterman has no feminine charm what so ever.”

Jacob shoves him again. “Feminine charm is what got you into this mess. Just keep moving.”

Lillian fans her flushed face with her sheet of notes.

You can find out what happened in Rio in Speak to Me of Abduction out now and why Jonathon needs a PI in Keep it Under Wraps due out on 19th July with SirenBookstrand.

Please welcome our special guest...

Mrs. Frances MacKenmy, late of Virginia.
Welcome Mrs. MacKenny

F: Just call me Frannie, most folks do.
Me: Okay, so Frannie, tell us a little about yourself? Where are you from?

F: Why I was born right here in Virginia. Born, raised, married...and murdered. This plantation was one of the largest cotton producers in the 1850's, at the peak of production we had one hundred slaves. Pappa kept the cotton selling and made a handsome profit. Kept the family name blemish free, for the most part.

Me: Married and murdered? But you're flesh and blood - aren't you?
F: Goodness no. I was married on a beautiful June day in 1859 to Robert MacKenny. It wasn't a match of my choosing, but I did as my father bid me. Wed the cad and on our wedding night he and the harlot he married after my death poisoned me. Imagine if you will feeling your life ebbing away as you watch your younger sister and your husband embracing. I was rather angered by it. When I woke, I was here, in this place, …

Crash into Love by Sofia Grey

Road Trippin’ – by the Red Hot Chili Peppers
Have you ever been between homes? Not just for a day or two, but for weeks on end? It’s a weird feeling. When I moved halfway round the world, a few years ago, I lived in a motel for a month while I house hunted. For that period, I didn’t actually have a home and it was strangely uplifting. I could live anywhere I chose, within reason. I could reinvent myself, start a brand new life. The possibilities felt endless, and for the first time in my life I could understand why some people become drifters.
The Lyrics of Road Trippin’ by the Red Hot Chili Peppers sum up this mood:
Road trippin' with my two favorite allies Fully loaded we got snacks and supplies It's time to leave this town It's time to steal away Let's go get lost
And the video is perfect! http://youtu.be/11GYvfYjyV0

What I love about Halloween

In today's world Halloween is often a time to dress up and go door to door looking for treats. Its sort of a time which over the years has become commercialized...and honestly that isn't my favorite part of the holiday.

No, I love Halloween for the meaning behind it...for the celebrations of life, of the harvest...for the myths and the legends, for the chance to be someone else for a few hours. Its the ultimate expression of a false face created ages and ages ago for a specific reason. When masks and costumes were designed to ward off the evil spirits which rose from the grave.

Regardless of its origins (and yes there is controversy about that) Halloween is a great time to celebrate family. To gather to carve pumpkins, and make treats (not so much anymore), to play pranks on others, and to really just experience life and joy.  For me, Halloween is a time when the paranormal is more readily accepted...when ghosts and goblins roam about with the living and it will always have a…
