Fangs, Fur, Fey, and… Corgis!
This one’s for the kids. There’s nothing furrier than a corgi growing its winter coat, and that’s what’s happening right about now in the Hollinger household. The cold October chill is bringing creeps of its own as fifth-grader Adam Hollinger juggles All-Star Baseball with mystery. Not only are the two new neighbors the creepiest people he’s ever seen, but his seventh-grade sister has a new group of friends that bring goosebumps to his skin.
In this Halloween-themed mystery novel for young detectives, Adam must discover whether the two new neighbors really ARE witches. Almost as important, he must crack the case to find out what his sister and her new friends have planned for Halloween. According to her, it’s the best prank yet. And all the while, the corgis are there to help.
Oh, and an interesting fact about the Fey. Did you know that legend says fairies used to ride corgis while running their mischievous errands? It’s why corgis have a “fairy saddle,” that white stripe around their collars. Legend has it that the special coloring was left from where the fairies would sit. If Sapphie the Corgi is any indication, the fairies just might still have a hand in daily corgi life!

I love to dress up. Halloween is the one day of the year that almost everyone cosplays as something or someone else.
BTW, I noticed you called the place Stoney Brook. Were you a fan of the *Baby-Sitters Club* series as well? I loved that series.
I didn’t know BSC had a town called Stoneybrook… I named my fictional town Stoney Brook as a fictionalization of where my parents went to college 🙂
Thanks for stopping by.
My favorite part is the treats! 😀
I love carving pumpkins!
