The Crossroads Tour: Christine Fonseca & Lucienne Diver

1. What is your favorite Halloween tradition?

As a kid, I used to LOVE to create haunted houses. I would plan out how to do the special effects, read up on everything (pre-internet days) and attempt to scare my friends. Even now, I like to decorate the house accordingly.

2. Would you share an embarrassing or funny Trick-or-Treat moment with us?

Ha! In Middle School I went to a Halloween party dressed as the Wicked Witch of the West – green makeup and all. Of course, I had no idea that the boy I had a crush on would be there. Imagine my horror when we all decided to play spin the bottle and there I was…covered in GREEN.

3. What is your favorite Halloween candy?

I LOVE chocolate – especially dark chocolate.So maybe Mounds or York Peppermint Patties??

4. Would you rather be a monster or an alien?

I am pretty partial to monsters, so that’s my vote!

1. What is your favorite Halloween tradition?

Trick-or-treating! I don’t think I’ll ever grow out of the thrill of this (who’d want to?). I love dressing in costume, seeing what all the kids come up with, taking my son around (sadly, people look at me funny if I try to go without him)…

Actually, I trick-or-treated myself well into college. My excuse then was that I lived in International House—a portion of my dorm dedicated to our exchange students and those who wanted to live among them—and I had to introduce everyone who’d never been to the joys of Halloween.

2. Would you share an embarrassing or funny Trick-or-Treat moment with us?

Probably my favorite Halloween memory is when we took Yukio, who was a Japanese exchange student, trick-or-treating with us. She wore a gorgeous kimono and wooden platform sandals I marveled at her ability to walk in, and had a wonderful time. The next day I saw her giving all of her candy away! I was stunned. Isn’t that main reason for trick-or-treating?! But she didn’t want the chocolate, just the experience. It was wonderful.

3. What is your favorite Halloween candy?

Baby Ruths! Always have been.

4. Would you rather be a monster or an alien?

I’ve been both in my time . My husband would say, “oh, you mean just last week.” He and I met as actors at a haunted house in New York. I’ve been, among other things, a swamp witch, a murderous chef, a vampiress, a hand coming out of a wall, a cavewoman, a gypsy fortuneteller…you name it. I’ve always loved to play parts. Growing up, I did a lot of local and school theatre, and I made my own Halloween costumes every year —Isis, a bat, an alien, a horse, Batgirl (the lavender years).

As much as I love playing roles, the heroine of my Vamped series, Gina, is totally good with just being herself, which is probably why I have so much fun throwing her out of her comfort zone in each book and giving her a part to play that is alien to her. Maybe some of the maniacal characters I’ve played have rubbed off on me just a tiny bit!
