Meghan: Hi, Becky. Welcome to Meghan’s House of Books. It’s always a pleasure to have a fellow blogger join us. What is your favorite part of Halloween?
Becky: EVERYTHING!!!!! I mean really what’s not to love? We get to decorate and be all creepy and let our inner goofballs out on parade. No one cares and we seem all normal and stuff! I really love the decorating, I mean…. No one knows if that is really a dead body in my yard or a bag with leaves tied up…. Oh I’ve said too much…. [runs off giggling]
Meghan: What is your favorite Halloween tradition?
Becky: When I was a kid we used to have a hay ride, my brother would always try to scare the hell out of me. Most of the time it worked, just don’t tell him I said that.
Meghan: If Halloween is your favorite holiday (or even second favorite holiday), why?
Becky: Halloween is my favorite holiday!! I love the time of year. The smell in the air, the cool crisp breeze, the colored leaves and everything that goes bump in the night. Kids getting excited and dressing up as their favorite characters. I guess it’s the kid in me that makes me love it and believe all things are still possible.
Meghan: What are you superstitious about?
Becky: I’m not sure I am superstitious about anything really, more anal? Can I say that? Oops!
I go out the same door I came in from, if I spill salt I will throw some over my shoulder. Mostly I just use that as an excuse to throw it at my brother. Lol
Meghan: What/who is your favorite horror monster or villain?
Becky: Leatherface beyond a doubt!!!
Meghan: Which unsolved murder fascinates you the most?
Becky: This one is easy! The Black Dahlia
Meghan: Which urban legend scares you the most?
Becky: The Bell Witch – I’m from Tennessee and it’s not far from where I grew up.
Meghan: Who is your favorite serial killer and why?
Becky: Jack the Ripper. The entire thing amazes me. He was so selective and precise. Not random and just killing people. How he laid them out. How extreme he was.
Meghan: How old were you when you saw your first horror movie? How old were you when you read your first horror book?
Becky: My parents were devout Southern Baptists. So the first horror movie I ever saw was Alien. I will never forget it. Mom was out of town and dad decided to watch it and let me see it too. I was around 9 (I think). I sat in the floor between his feet with a blanket over my head peeking out.
The first horror book I read was Stephen King’s The Bachman Books when Rage was still in it, god I don’t remember how old I was. They left me alone at the library too long and bam I was hooked.
Meghan: Which horror novel unsettled you the most?
Becky: Housemates by Iain Rob Wright and Bad Games by Jeff Menapace
Meghan: Which horror movie scarred you for life?
Becky: A Nightmare on Elm Street
Meghan: What is your favorite Halloween costume?
Becky: I was a witch for Halloween as a kid and had a wicked green mask with black curly hair.
Meghan: What is your favorite Halloween-themed song?
Becky: I’m not sure I have one to be honest.
Meghan: What is your favorite Halloween candy or treat? What is your most disappointing?
Becky: I love candy corn, I don’t like the sticky peanut butter kisses.
Becky Narron is a southern, born and raised. Learning to love books at an early age when her dad read Lord of the Rings to her chapter by chapter before going to sleep. She has read most everything she could get her hands on from King to Barker and then falling in love with the indie world. Her main love is poetry and she has several poems published in different anthologies. Her love of poetry only grew as she read Poe and then met an amazing poet named Alfred Gremsly who’s dark poetry could rival Poe. He was the driving force in getting her to share her book with others.
Her first introduction to the indie world was Iain Rob Wright and his book Housemates. She couldn’t put it down then read everything he has written. Her next was Jeff Menapace and then Matt Shaw. Soon she was friends with several authors and William Cook talked her into writing reviews and starting her blog Roadie Notes. Later she started doing interviews with the authors as well and the blog exploded. The first year it had over 15,000 views. It became a way of life for her and something she was passionate about until she started working for a small indie press. She learned everything she could from several different publishers before starting her own publishing company Terror Tract Publishing LLC starting as an online magazine and then in the next few months published their first book. We haven’t looked back since then. We means Horr With An Attitude for a reason.
