Special Halloween Interview with Author Shawnte' Borris

1.   What’s the scariest thing you’ve ever heard/read/seen? It can be from a book, movie, or from the campfire at night…

I am a wuss - I hate anything remotely that has to do with being scared. Movies, TV shows, haunted houses. I am a screamer and a crier.

2.   Who would you like to bring back as a zombie? Why?

Really what the hell is a zombie? Are they good, evil??

Zombie (dictionary) noun - the body of a dead person given the semblance of life, but mute and will-less, by a supernatural force, usually for some evil purpose. A 'person' who behavior or responses are wooden, listless or seemingly rote; automaton.

If this is the case, I'd chose to bring no 'body' back! Like, WTH kind of question is this? (lol)

3.   What is your favorite thing about Halloween?

I love the little trick or treat goblins that come to the door. I try every year to go to my cousins that live in a city, so I can hand out candy while they take the kids out. I get sad when I see them across the street and they don't come to my door or when they just walk by. (I even dress up to hand out candy)

4.   What was your best Halloween costume?

I dressed as Velma from Scooby Doo one year.
Last year I went as little Red Riding Hood.
I really want a full blown Snow White costume! I already have the shoes.

5.   Is there an author out there that you’re pretty sure is a witch? Tell us who and why you think so!

I've never given this any thought ...geez I have no idea even as I sit here and think. (I know I'm lame, sorry)

Thank you, Shawnte'!!!

How to find Shawnte':

Shawnté lives in central Alberta, with her husband Ricky of eleven amazing years and together they have two beautiful children. Somehow her husband has managed to trick her into running a cow/calf operation. As much as she fusses about it, she loves it.

When Shawnté is not sitting at her kitchen table hammering away on her laptop while watching the moose chase her cows across the yard, yes this really happens. Then she is busy attend school activities, community events and chauffeuring children here and there. She is big on playing softball and watching hockey.

When the time comes to relax, you will find her snuggled underneath her down comforter reading on her Ipad. Wait…who are we kidding, if the dishes, vacuuming, laundry or the bathrooms needs a hose down, you’ll always hear her say, “Just after this chapter.” She doesn’t have a favorite author or best story because everyday she falls in love with someone new.

Shawnté is technology challenged so you won’t find her on twitter (heaven knows she tried) or instagram – whatever this stuff is called. But she can work one hell of a facebook page J thanks to her fictitious assistant Lacy. Please go like her page and leave a review/star rating on the books she’s wrote.
