Since I won't choose between my own sexy men from my books, Damon from the Vampire Diaries.

Channelers of course, humans with the ability to manipulate energy into a physical force for fighting or healing.
4. Do you have any Halloween rituals?
I love to carve pumpkins, bake the seeds, decorate the house, and watch my favorite scary movies.

All of the above and I would totally do it!

Losing people that I love.

  1. Haloween does seem ready made for those of us who write urban fantasy, doesn't it? Hence, I guess, my latest WIP, THREE SPIRIT KNIGHT. Alice and Victor are basically the poster children of Halloween! It was great learning more about. I share your greatest fear, Roland

  2. Buffy!!!! How could I forget about Buffy? I had a ridiculous obsession with her in Junior High and pretty much wanted to be her. Okay, so maybe I still do. :D

  4. I actually hate Buffy, or rather Joss Whedon. Did he realize how hard he was making it for us writers, by proving that you can have badassness, love, laughter, tears, great ensemble characters, and unexpected twists all in one show????

    But seriously, I don't think any of us would be the writers (and maybe the women) we are today without Buffy and the Scoobygang.

    Dying, which is why she must choose between death and saving those she loves in the end.

  8. This is so cool! I had just learned about Urban Fantasy, and Halloween could not be a better time. It's mood enhancing and opens all sorts of doors. "Trick or Treat!"

    1. I've always loved doing that! It's one of my favorite parts of the holiday. Plus I love all things pumpkin. :)

  10. Oh, yes, Damon is a top pick. And not surprising from you, miss Ian Somerhalder Foundation lady. ;-)

    Love the rest of your answers, too. I need to go back to Buffy. I was too busy with 3 little kids to get too far into the series. Yay for Netflix!

  11. I LOVE roasted pumpkin seeds. I'm not sure if we're going to do them this year. The kids got pumpkins that are too small to carve. :P

  12. Mmmmm. Pumpkin seeds are the BEST. Love to bake them with just salt.

  13. Oh, man! I wih I would have known about the Halloween Hop :( Anyways, I enjoyed reading your response! Urban Fantasy is a great to escape the real world while still keeping your feet planted in the "modern world", I think that's why so many people can relate to it :) It's not too hard to picture the evnts that are happening and you don't have to put too much time and effort into creating a "high fantasy" world which gives you more time to build up your dialogue and characters. I'm going to go check out your books. Have a great day!
