“Hirshberg weaves love, desire, revenge, loyalty, and sacrifice into a blockbuster narrative. His adept characterization engages the reader’s sympathies for Natalie and Sophie as they fight the pangs of vampiric hunger and yearn for their absent children. The clash of human and vampire worlds in the tumultuous final showdown presents a satisfying, if startling, conclusion and infuses this work with both literary and genre merit.” – Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

Cue the lion, we’re about to go live!

Speaking of cues, tonight’s guest is acclaimed children’s author, Q.L. Pearce. We look forward to grilling her (over an open flame) about why she so enjoys scaring children. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that!)

QL1

Q writes in many children’s genres but is perhaps most famous for the best-selling series, Scary Stories for Sleep-Overs. She’ll curl your hairs, whether you’re young or old with her Bradbury-esque talents. (And she’s begun a new series of scary stories for kids with the first volume of Blood Moon Harbor.)

We’re going to ask her about books, writing horror for kids, and her own experiences with the paranormal. You’re going to want to hear this!

QL2

Q.L. Pearce will be joining us tonight, November 6th at 9:00 p.m. eastern, 6 pacific. If you can’t listen live, a podcast will be up soon. Go to Haunted Nights LIVE! to listen!
