Today, the Crossroads bring you the lady who started it all…JUDITH GRAVES! Yes, she is the master mind of the Crossroads, of course, and I’m happy to be apart of her awesome idea.
Ms. Graves here has written Under My Skin…and that, my friends, is about… *drum roll*
All her parents wanted was for Eryn to live a normal life…
Redgrave, Alberta had its share of monsters before Eryn moved to town. Mauled pets, missing children. The Delacroix family is taking the blame, but Eryn knows the truth. Something stalks the night. Wade, the police chief’s son and Redgrave High’s resident hottie, warns her the Delacroix are dangerous. But then so is Eryn-in fact, she’s lethal. But she can’t help falling for one of the Delacroix boys, dark, brooding-human Alec. And then her world falls apart.
A normal life? Now that’s the real fairytale.

Now, on to the interview:
1. You write about a town that has a lot of…creepy things! Do you ever wish you lived in a town filled with vamps, weres, and the oh my!?
You mean I don’t? Now that’s disappointing… lol…
2. I hate to ask…would you want to date a werewolf or a vampire?
In the Skinned series werewolves are very nasty creatures – soulless, mindless beasts – not unlike some guys I dated back in the day. However, if you’re talking lycan/wolven-ish shapeshifters, then I’d be much wiser now and choose one of those to date over a cold-blooded, scary-assed un-dead vampire.
3. If you could dress up as anything you wanted for Halloween, what would it be?
The Bride of Frankenstein, or Marge Simpson, or better yet – Marge Simpson as the Bride of Franky. Why? The updos of course! Hold on a minute, has anyone seen Marge and The Bride in a room together at the same time? Hmm…..
4. Oh no! You’re at a Hallows Eve Party and at 12am you actually become what you were dressed up as! Who/what would you be dressed up as?
Like that great episode of Buffy. Nice. Well, this year I’m going as the WWII propaganda machine that was Rosie the Riveter, so I’d likely be going around saying “We can do it!” and flexing my wimpy biceps. 😉
5. What’s next in your writing career?
I’m working on several projects, Second Skin, the next book in the Skinned series, where darkness settles over Eryn like a second skin…as well as a contemporary YA novel that I’ve been picking away at.
