Hallow be the Haunt

(A Krewe of Hunters Novella)

by Heather Graham

Years ago, Jake Mallory fell in love all over again with Ashley Donegal–while he and the Krewe were investigating a murder that replicated a horrible Civil War death at her family’s Donegal Plantation.

Now, Ashley and Jake are back–planning for their wedding, which will take place the following month at Donegal Plantation, her beautiful old antebellum home.

But Halloween is approaching. And Ashley is haunted by a ghost warning her of deaths about to come in the city of New Orleans, deaths caused by the same murderer who stole the life of the beautiful ghost haunting her dreams, night after night.

At first, Jake is afraid that returning home has simply awakened some of the fear of the past…

But as Ashley’s nightmares continue, a body count begins to accrue in the city…

And it’s suddenly a race to stop a killer before Hallow’s Eve comes to a crashing end, with dozens more life at stake, not to mention heart, soul, and life for Jake and Ashley themselves.

An Exclusive Interview With Heather Graham:

~ with Jillian Stein of Read Love Blog

I adore the Krewe of Hunters and Jake and Ashely’s story was incredible. How did you choose them for this novella?

It’s always fun to go back and use the original Krewe members and Donegal Plantation allows for a lot of great things to happen.

One of my favorite things about a lot of your writing is you include an element of scariness without being too scary. Is it ever hard to manage that balance?

I never really know what the balance will be. I just hope to make the reader happy.

I’m always in awe of how many books you’ve written and how many characters you’ve developed over the years. Do you keep some sort of story bible or flow chart to keep track of it all?

Each summer with the trio that comes out with Mira, I always have a bible to keep the characters straight.

Do you have a favorite Halloween movie or TV show you love to watch around this time of year?

Yes, Hocus Pocus! (A very dear friend and incredible man and actor—Doug Jones—plays Billy Bones!)

What would be your theme song if you had to choose one?


Can you give us a hint as to what you’re working on next?

A number of things are in the works! Next March will bring “A Dangerous Game,” a Finnegan series novel, and come the summer, three more Krewe books—Fade to Black, Pale as Death, and Echoes of Evil. Now out, Toys in the Attic, Big Easy Evil, and of course, Hallow Be the Haunt! November brings American Drifter, co-written with actor Chad Michael Murray, and, Shadows in the Night, an Intrigue!
