Haunting tales

I love the week prior to Halloween, although my car and microphone do get their work out! I often think of myself as the Queen of Haunting tales..I guess I have lots of reasons for Mom was born on Halloween (oh, why wasn't I)...I was born on a full moon in July (wasn't I, Mom?)..and I love capes.

I often rehearse my stories in the quiet of The House At White Picket Gardens. I have also been known to rehearse my stories in cemeteries and the like...

Today I have three shows to finish out the season. It is a haunting day...windy and cold. Leaves are twirling and spilling around my cozy house. But alas, alas, time to gather the cape (I'll leave the broomstick behind for this one!) and head out to Ohio.

Tonight is my 15th year show at Pokagon State Park with my friend, Steve Etheridge. We share one show together each year, and this is it. It promises to be another spooky, bat flying evening.

And a haunted Halloween week end to you and yours.

Lou Ann Homan-Saylor lives in Angola, Indiana which is nestled in the hills of Northern Indiana. When she is home at the White Picket Gardens you can find her gardening or writing late into the night under the light of her frayed scarlet lamp. She is a storyteller, a teacher, a writer, an actress and a collector of front porch stories.
