Interview with Leighann Dobbs, Author of Halloween Party Murder

02 Nov 2022

What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write Halloween Party Murder?

This is just a fun quirky cozy mystery within a Halloween setting.

If you had to pick theme songs for the main characters of Halloween Party Murder, what would they be?

Funny you should ask. The main character, Juniper Holiday, loves music and blares 80s rock music, so anything from an 80s rock band would be a good theme song for her.

What’s your favorite genre to read? Is it the same as your favorite genre to write?

I love reading all kinds of mysteries, but cozy mysteries are my favorite to write.

What books are on your TBR pile right now?

Paper Doll (Spenser series book 20) by Robert Parker, Marple: 12 New Mysteries by Agatha Christie and others.

What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

The scene where the body is discovered, that one is always my favorite to write.

Do you have any quirky writing habits? (lucky mugs, cats on laps, etc.)

I need a cup of coffee to sip on while I am procrastinating about writing.

Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?

You can’t edit a blank page!

If you could choose one thing for readers to remember after reading your book, what would it be?
