#BadMoonRising Amanda in New Mexico: Ghosts in the Wind by Darlene Foster #childrensbooks #ghosts #supernatural

I’m a big fan of this author’s Amanda series. I haven’t traveled to all the places Amanda has, but after reading the book I feel like I have. They’re so well-researched they could double as travel guides. I follow this author on social media and get to see adorable pics of her fur babies, but if you haven’t met them yet, today is your chance. Welcome Darlene Foster!

Would you rather visit a haunted house or a haunted graveyard?

A haunted graveyard. (Aren’t they all haunted? I mean, they are full of dead people, right?) I love graveyards and spend a lot of time in them. They are outside and easy to escape if things get tense. You can get locked inside a haunted house. Yikes!

What is the spookiest ghost story you’ve ever heard?

The story about a young couple who are making out in a car when they hear noises outside. When they check, there is an artificial hand hanging on the door handle. Later they hear on the news about a one-armed serial killer on the loose. That always creeps me out. (Maybe it’s not really a ghost story but it is scary) 

If you could have a spooky Halloween pet (black cat, owl, bat, rat, wolf, etc.), which would you choose?

A black cat. I have owned three black cats in my life and they were all great. Mind you, I was careful not to make any of them angry.

Have you ever travelled as research for any of your books? 

I travel as research for all my books! I travelled to New Mexico to research Amanda in New Mexico: Ghosts in the Wind. I visited the haunted hotel in Cimarron and boy did it have scary vibes. 

Have pets ever gotten in the way of your writing? 

Oh yes! My two dogs, Dot and Lia, are always pestering me for a walk just as I am at an intense part of the book.

What are you working on now?

I am currently working on Amanda in Scotland: The Standing Stones. There just might be some spooky parts in it, you never know.

Amanda Ross is on a school trip to Taos, New Mexico with several of her fellow creative students. She shares a room with Cleo, an anxious classmate who insists she sees ghosts. Although Amanda is determined to prove there is no such thing, she can’t seem to shake the feeling that something or someone is watching her. 

Join Amanda, Cleo and their funny friend, Caleb, as they visit a rugged and beautiful landscape where a traditional hacienda, an ancient pueblo, and a haunted and spooky hotel all hold secrets to a wild and violent past. 

Does Cleo really see ghosts? Can Amanda escape the eerie wind that follows her everywhere? Perhaps The Day of the Dead will reveal the mysteries of Taos in this latest adventure of Amanda’s travels.

  1. Thanks, Teri! I am delighted to be part of the Bad Moon Rising series. These are so much fun leading up to Halloween. I’ll be back to respond to any comments after I take the girls out for a walk as I see them pleading again with those eyes!

  2. Lovely to see Darlene here this morning, Teri! And Darlene, I remember that story about the young couple in the car. It always creeped me out, too!

    I have to say that I envy Amanda greatly! I’m so jealous of her many fun travels, but so glad you are “documenting” them for us all to share. The WIP sounds especially appealing to me, as there’s no place in the world I’d enjoy seeing one day more than Scotland!

    Super post, indeed, and best of luck to you AND Amanda on all your travels! 🤗❤️

        1. I have Scottish heritage on my mother’s side (family name Melton) but even without it, it’s a country I’ve always been drawn to and would love to see. Congratulations on your 26%! Cool!! 😀

  5. Hi Teri. It’s great to see Darlene here. I haven’t been to Cimmaron, but there are certainly some haunts around the state. This Amanda book sounds spook-a-licious.
    I’m surprised she didn’t answer the mythological critter question with the book being in NM. No chupacabras? No La Llorona? Maybe Amanda and Darlene can visit the “Land of Enchantment” again. 🙂 Happy Halloween hugs.

  6. Glad to see the interview with Darlene!! Her Amanda series is something I will have our granddaughter reading. Not only for the stories, but the exposure to so many different settings around the world. (she is starting to learn to read as we speak)
