Happy Halloween!

blogs for the

Pen & Ink Mysteries

by Krista Davis




I moved to Georgetown in Washington, DC a few months ago. At this time of year I can't help thinking about ghosts when I walk the streets. Red, orange, and gold leaves crunch underfoot. And they twirl through the air when the wind blows. This morning as I walked to Color Me Read, the bookstore I manage, I smelled smoke. Did someone have a fire going in a fireplace already?

Pumpkins are clustered at the stoops of old brownstones and fancy wreaths decorate the doors. But a guest author who visited the store told us that most people died at home in the 1700s and 1800s. Now I can't help wondering how many of those homes have ghosts! Some of them have quirky little windows at the very tops. If I were a kid trick-or-treating around here, I think I'd be seeing ghostly faces peering out!

Maybe I'm thinking about ghosts because Dolly was murdered. She was so kind. I can't imagine her being a mean ghost. One of her husbands was murdered right here in Georgetown. I wonder if he's haunting the streets looking for his killer. You can read more about it in The Coloring Crook, which will be in stores on November 29th! Or you could be the lucky person who wins an early copy by leaving a comment here today!

  16. Ghosts and Spirits are always around us. Some people refuse to pass over and feel they must remain in certain places. Most are not mean but some do love to play games with us humans. Thanks for the giveaway. Robin
