She also turns the questions to us and we gave in. So you might here a couple stories from us about Halloween. We also learn where she found the inspiration behind her book about Halloween/Haunters & the Haunt Industry titled Halloween Nation: Behind America’s Fright Night. 

Lesley has interviewed & met many Haunters and Halloween fans within the industry. Small Home Haunters to Pumpkin Carvers-Pro Haunters to Witch Festivals- she has inspired many of us….
