Special Halloween Interview with Author Amanda Troyer

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'm a visual person. Even though I've read some things that have scared me, I'm more bothered by movies. When I saw the ring for the first time in high school, I was terrified. It scared the crap out of me and I had my friend stay over that night because I was such a wuss. Well, on the way out to the car after the movie I got a phone call, but no one answered. Dead air. I know that's not how it goes in the movie, but it was still unnerving. Then the next morning I woke up with my first, EVER, bloody nose. I thought I was for real going to die.

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

No one! Zombies are mindless (well, except for the Warm Bodies ones) brain eaters! I wouldn't want anyone I know... wait.. maybe someone I don't like could come back as a zombie then I could shoot them in the head. ;) Just kidding, I wouldn't want to deal with zombies ever.

3.   What is your favorite thing about Halloween?

Probably the fact that, if I wanted, I could dress up really slutty and not be too ridiculed for it. That's what women do for Halloween, right? Just playing into stereotypes here. Also, Skittles. Can't handle the Skittles. I'd eat them until I threw up.

4.   What was your best Halloween costume?

In high school, me, my friend, and her friend decided to be Daria, Jane, and Trent. My Jane outfit was AMAZING. I had the boots, the shirts, the shorts... it was so good. But being a teenager, something caused drama and I opted out of going all together. I'm sad that I 1) don't have a picture from that night, 2) have no fun memories of dressing up with my friends because I was being a punk.

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

A witch? I'm not sure that I would claim anyone was a witch since I don't know too many authors so I don't want to randomly pick someone. Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to be a witch... I'd definitely want to be a Harry Potter witch... not a Vampire Diaries or Once Upon a Time witch. I'd be BFFs with Luna, no question.

Wait, what was the question? ;)

Thank you, Amanda!!!
