What inspired you to write The Curse of the Devil's Purse Inn?
I've always been fond of children's mysteries with fun and spooky twists. I loved the Bunnicula books growing up, the Scooby-Doo, Where Are You? cartoon, and the like. As I got older, I watched The Munsters TV re-runs and movies like The Addams Family. There is just something about these fun, quirky, and humorous stories that I really enjoy. This book is me taking a playful stab at this type of story.
