It’s a Monster Mash

Everybody head down to the graveyard–it’s party time! Today is a very special day, because it’s the birthday of my partner in crime, the Midnight Society matriarch–Jolene Haley! None of us would be here without you, Jolene, and we’ve brought some creeptastic gifts to show you how much we care.

Jolene, not only are you an amazing friend, but I probably wouldn’t still be writing if it weren’t for you. I’m extra lucky, because I get to write with you, which is one of the great joys in my life. And since we’re getting ready to unleash our next book Haunted upon the world, I’m giving you gifts related to our characters, Avery and Quinn:

A special phone call from a certain harvest-themed friend:

A little bonding with the derby girls Shari and Quinn:

And some music from Avery to bang your head to:

Happy birthday, partner! You’re the best!



What can I say about a girl like you? Super cool, super talented and one of the most caring people I’ve ever met!

One of the reasons I’m so thankful for you is for the way you invited me into the fold and introduced me to more amazing people!

One day, I know we’ll meet and be able to TEAR IT UP with the rest of the Midnighters. Until then, we’ll just have to keep writing tales to scare the bejeezus out of one another!

Love you, girl!



To the girl who has brought us together! To the girl who makes us all smile…and tremble in fear. There is only one thing to say.


Well, you need to be able to cut your cake. And in honor of the Summer of Screams, a cake inspired by someone who knows all about summer camp.


Your favorite guy will be over later with dinner, just for you. Have fun!

Happy happy birthday! You’re the best.



Just a little creepy

Overly protective and a little sneaky

Lovely, literary, little bit weird

Erica loves you and

Nuggets of the chicken

Erica REALLY wants chicken nuggets but only if they are shaped like dinosaurs or are covered in hot sauce.

If you want to get Jolene an amazing gift for her birthday, buy her book right here!
