I’ve been finding Halloween harder this year

I’ve been finding Halloween harder this year, including the weeks leading up to it-it’s a time when cults increase their torture-but I’ve tried to focus on ways to make it positive tonight: dressing Petal up, and me, and then going out with the three little girls and their baby sister. I love Petal looking cute and adorable as a butterfly fairy, love wearing butterflies myself (can you tell I love Monarch butterflies?), and I love the kids’ enjoyment and delight in spending time with me.

I wish stores and houses didn’t display gruesome decorations like chopped, bloody limbs; human skulls; skeletons; spiders; masks, and gravestones, all of which are used in cult torture and abuse (real ones, not fake), but I’ve been getting through, and now I’m back home cuddling Petal and relaxing.

About Cheryl Rainfield

I write the books I needed and couldn't find as a teen. I write teen fiction--paranormal fantasy and gritty realistic fiction. I'm the author of SCARS (WestSide Books, 2010) #1 ALA QuickPicks, and Governor General Literary Award Finalist, HUNTED (WestSide Books, Oct 2011), STAINED (Harcourt, 2013), The Last Dragon (HIP Books, Sept 2009), and Walking Both Sides (HIP Books, 2011). I also enjoy drawing, surfing the web, connecting with people I like, doing crafts, and being with my dog.
