This week on Thorne & Cross: Haunted Nights LIVE!, we’re joined by Cody Meirick, director/producer of the upcoming documentary, Scary Stories.
 
Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark is a series of children’s books published in the 1980’s and 90’s written by Alvin Schwartz and originally illustrated by Stephen Gammell. Many of us who love horror likely read the beloved and often controversial collection of folk stories and legends as children. The books will be honored in Scary Stories, the upcoming documentary directed/produced by Cody Meirick, which will feature interviews from Schwartz’s family members, folklorists, scholars, and notable horror authors such as R.L. Stine. And as an added bonus, Q.L. Pearce, multi-award-winning author of Spine Chillers and the iconic Scary Stories for Sleep-Overs, will be hosting this special YA edition of Thorne & Cross: Haunted Nights LIVE! with us.

Haunted Nights LIVE!

Be there if you dare…

Our tap shoes are ready. Our hairspray is drying. Our guest is manacled in the dungeon being fed nothing but caviar and pickles. Thorne & Cross: Haunted Nights LIVE! is about to debut.

We’ve decided to interview each other about our new show since we need the practice.

TT: So, our first guest is children’s writer, Q.L. Pearce.  She wrote the Scary Stories for Sleepover series and a whole lot more. If you looked at her complete bibliography, your jaw would drop.  What shall we ask her?

AC: Let’s ask her how much her bibliography weighs.

TT: Do you think we should? That seems rather personal, don’t you think?

AC: You know how I like to pry. What say we ask her about some of her ghost stories?

TT: Absolutely. I’ve read many of them – that’s the joy of Q’s writing.. She’s always put me in mind of Ray Bradbury with her shorts. Both children and adults can enjoy them. She’s a spooky lady.

AC: I agree. I liked the one about the holes in the ceiling.

TT: That’s a great one and she has a terrific real life story that goes with it.  In fact, she has several great true stories. Maybe we can get her to tell the one about the Palm Springs haunted house she encountered as a teenager. That one will curl your hair!

AC: Oh, yes… I love that one. I’m getting stoked about having her on!

TT: Me, too. And she’s nice. She won’t swear at us for making premiere-night goofs!

AC: Yeah, I’m pleased to have her as a guest for the first show for many reasons, and that’s one of them. She is a sweet, talented lady, and she’s going to be a lot of fun.

TT: And if we’re good, she’ll bake us cookies! Here’s what she helped me make for Dia de los Muertos this year.

AC: Mmmm… sugar skulls….

TT: With real ones underneath…  You ought to see her torture chamber! It’s the best! Hansel and Gretel are down there, you know…

AC: Hmph, hmph, mumble, mumble *Eating sugar skulls*

TT: Hmph, mrrrgh, mumble, mumble *Eating Alistair’s skull*

AC: Ouch!!

Q believes strongly in the value of scary books for young readers. When asked what qualifies her as an expert in this area she replies, “I was a child once. That was very scary.”

Q.L. Pearce will be joining us Thursday night, November 6th at 9:00 p.m. eastern. There will be a short quiz afterward, so be on time. But if you can’t listen live, there will be podcast later; so you can take a make-up quiz later.
