Excerpt

Here are two Wriggles from Wriggelum-town-- Their legs are sky-blue and their bodies are brown; Their tails are a wonderful changeable hue; I don't care to have them for playmates, do you?

THE GRENADIER

[Illustration]

A soldierly fellow is he, With swords as erect as can be. His attendants are queer, And so small, they appear To barely reach up to his knee.

[Illustration]

As our Author of the Day, Aaron talks about how she fell in love with her characters, tells us more about The Hauntings of Cold Creek Hollow and shares some of her own personal paranormal experiences.
