Halloween Author and Artist, Donna Davies publishes her books though All Hallows’ Eve Press. A division of Haunted Hudson Valley, Ltd. She has launched several best-selling Halloween books that are destined to be the new Halloween classics of our generation.
My first picture book for children, The Halloween Queen Who Lost Her Scream, thrilled audiences from 6 to 60 upon its release, and I had earned her opportunities to present the book at libraries across the region.
My second book was inspired by Washington Irving’s 1820 short story, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, and my personal experience in the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery one crisp fall evening. Sleepy Hollow and the Road You’d Better Not Follow s a rhyming story from the heart. The Headless Horseman has always been my favorite Halloween hero; he isn’t bad, just a little scary when confronted. After noticing that few children’s books touched on his tale in a way they could connect with, I decided to rectify the problem by writing a mini mystery that children can enjoy, buy not be frightened.
In my third Halloween book, Night of the Candy Creepers.I know I am outing the parents in this story, but it really takes me back to all those times I pinched some kid’s Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. The kids really enjoy the surprise ending and so does the parent. After a night of fright, I decided to calm children’s fears by with Bye, Bye Boogeyman. An rip-roaring tale of a fearless little girl who torments the boogeyman until he begs to be set free.
