Donna Davies, Author

BIO:
Hudson Valley, NY resident Donna Davies, dubbed the “Halloween Queen,”
divides her time between authoring children’s books, lecturing to both adults and children, and curating several web sites dedicated to the holiday.

Ms. Davies’ first picture book for children, The Halloween Queen Who Lost Her Scream and Sleepy Hollow and the Road You'd Better Not Follow, thrilled audiences from 6 to 60 upon its release last October and earned her numerous opportunities to present the book at libraries and schools across the region.

She will be releasing her third children’s Halloween book, "Night of the Candy Creepers"; following with a ghostly Christmas book, " A Mostly Ghostly Christmas" through her publishing company All Hallows Eve Press .

Sleepy Hollow and the Road You'd Better Not Follow is inspired by Washington Irving’s 1820 short story, “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow,” and her personal experiences in the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery one fall evening, Davies’ book is a rhyming story from the heart. “The Headless Horseman has always been my favorite Halloween hero; he isn’t bad, just a little scary when confronted. After noticing that few children’s books touched on his tale in a way they could connect with, I decided to rectify that,” she explains with a grin fit for a jack-o-lantern. With ghoulish giggle, Ms. Davies shares a secret, "All my stories come from personal experiences in my life--from a tiny trick or treater to an adult candy creeper."

A staunch supporter of local libraries and historical societies, Ms.
Davies is an active member of the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery Historical Board and curates the Hudson Valley Halloween Magazine as an “en-spook-lopedia” of all things grim and ghoulish in the area.

Ms. Davies offers a Halloween Story Time presentation of all her books and is available to visit your local haunt on kids' day.

To purchase a signed copy of her Halloween books, please visit All Hallows Eve Press. (www.allhallowsevepress.com)
