Cate: Delphina’s here to party with us! Delphina, what do you love most about Halloween?
Delphina: Until I had children, my answer would have been the pumpkins and Indian Corn. Now that I have kids, it is listening to them trying to figure out who or what they want to dress up as. There is something magical about a child’s imagination.
Cate: Definitely! Do you have a favorite memory of a Halloween past?
Delphina: I was at the first Keene Pumpkin Festival where they broke the world’s record for most jack-o-lanterns. Seeing the thousands and thousands of pumpkins lit at the same time was so beautiful.
Cate: Wow, that must have been so cool! Have you ever had an unusual experience you couldn’t explain?
Delphina: I don’t think so, but I am always on the lookout. That kind of thing fascinates me.
Cate: Me too. What frightens you the most?
Delphina: Something happening to one of my children.
Cate: Ever gone on a ghost tour? Or ghost hunting on your own?
Delphina: I did go on a ghost tour in Nashville and it was beyond interesting hearing all of the stories and seeing all of the places that were reported to have ghosts. Sadly, we did not see any ourselves.
Cate: Any favorite Halloween recipes you’d care to share?
Delphina: I am not an overly creative cook and generally don’t have holiday specific recipes. I am known, however, to over cinnamon everything this time of year.
Cate: Tell us about your latest release, and where readers can find it online.
Delphina: My latest release is Unless You Can Be A Unicorn and can be found on http://amzn.to/ZzoZxT .
Cate: Care to share a blurb or excerpt?
Always be yourself
That was the last advice Scout's Grandma Nora gave her before she died. Scout has spent her life trying to be anything but, but she has a chance to start anew as she moves several states away to college. She had always thought the glowing aura she saw around some people was a childhood fancy, but when it starts coming back just as she's starting her new life, she learns there was much hidden about who she truly is.
Thankfully, she has a motley crew to help her along the way: a spunky bookseller, a trustworthy pub owner, a commanding grandmother, a possible best friend, and a hot rocker boy who only has eyes for her.
Bonus: “Witches, and Werewolves, and Unicorns, Oh My!” By Elizabeth Kirke: A More than Magic Series Short Story— Exclusively written for Unless You Can Be a Unicorn
Cate: What inspired you to write about the theme?
Delphina: I always wondered why in all of the unicorn stories, their downfall seemed to be an innocent young virgin and asked myself : “What if they got it all wrong? What if it was a paranormal ability and had nothing to do with being innocent? What if those young girls were actually evil?” and from there my brain exploded with ideas including unicorns actually being people.
Cate: Anything else you’d like to share?
